My deepest sympathies to all of the Schueller families. She was such a kind, caring and loving lady. She made the best cinnamon rolls I've ever tasted. A beautiful soul. Rest in peace Shirley.

I am a caregiver at Luther Manor and delighted in my visits with Shirley. She is part of the reason the place is so special to me, and I will miss her. May you be consoled, and may Shirley rest peacefully.
