Shirley arrived in Camp Verde, Arizona by covered wagon on September 3, 1913. She was born in Aztec, N.M., to Robert and Ada Babcock Conder.

She was reared on a ranch six miles south of Camp Verde. Her early years of schooling were spent in a little one room country school house called Squaw Peaks on the bands of the Verde River. She attended high school in Camp Verde, after which she married and had her children.

During her life time she lived in California, New Mexico, Arkansas, Nevada and Colorado but always returning home to Arizona. The last four years she lived with her husband, Will, in Mayer, Arizona.

Her hobby was growing flowers, Roses being her favorite. She had many lovely rose brushes at her home in Mayer.

Shirley loved her family very much and always wanted for them peace and happiness.

She is survived by her husband, Will, all her children, grand-children, great-grandchildren, and her great-great-grandchildren, her sister Nina and many nieces and nephews. She is buried in the Cottonwood cemetery not far from grandpa and grandma Conder.

When we smell the scent of "Tabu" her favorite perfume or see a lovely rose or a beautiful Arizona Sunset, our minds and hearts will always reflect back on the lovely, high spirited lady with red hair who we all loved. WRITTEN BY ALBERT CONDER.

Her siblings were: Villie Estella, George Robert, Mary Lillie, Lendora Ann, Eliphie Ellen, Nina Belle, Shirley Paralee, Chloie Addelene.
