MIDVALE--Shirlee passed away on February 7, 1999 of a heart attack in Taylorsville, Utah.

She was born on March 3, 1927 in East Midvale, Utah, in her grandparent's home, the daughter of Matthew Harold and Margaret Forbush Bishop. She attended Midvale Elementary and Midvale Junior High School and graduated from Jordan High School, Class of 1945.

Shirlee graduated from the University of Utah in 1950, majoring in Elementary Education. She worked as an elementary school librarian for six years in Granite School District and then in Jordan School District for 25 years, retiring in 1987. She loved the children she worked with. Ralph and Shirlee were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on December 8, 1948 by Elder David O. McKay. They lived most of their years together in Midvale. Mother loved to fish and camp, read, and was an avid miniature enthusiast. Her home was one of her many joys. She was preceded in death by her eternal companion, Ralph; her father, Harold; her stepfather, Blaine Meakin.
