A question I often get is “Where did the name Miss Shirley’s Place come from”. Honestly, I had created an entire list of very witty, marketable names to choose from. But when it came down to it I wanted something symbolizing a safe, loving place and that made me think of my mom.
My mom’s name was Shirley. She passed in 2020 of natural causes … not COVID. My mom had 8 children, a crazy amount of grandchildren and great grandchildren. While she was an animal lover and we had a wide variety of animals growing up she was mostly known for her work in day cares. The children, co-workers, parents always called her “Miss Shirley”. She self-taught herself and was certified as a kindergarten teacher, won awards, and was very well respected in the community in Tampa, FL.
The name is a tribute to her and what a wonderful lady she was. Because regardless of who she was or what she did or who was around my mom always made everyone feel safe, loved and at “home” … in her world at Miss Shirley’s Place.
