Shirley was born and raised in Albany, New York she graduated from Albany High School in 1968 and married her high school sweetheart Donald James Mincher in 1970. She remarried in 2002. Shirley was extremely close to her family, living across the road from her parents and her sister for many years with her brother in nearby Binghamton. Although life took Shirley and her siblings in different directions later in life, she remained close with them. She spent as much time with her grandchildren as possible, making routine trips to New York to spend time with family for a couple of months each summer. Shirley spent much of her professional life in the post office. First as a clerk in Richford, Berkshire, and Newark Valley, and then as a Postmaster in Tioga Center and finally in Nichols. Throughout her years in customer service with the post office, she made many friends and was well liked and respected by nearly everyone she met. Shirley had great involvement in her community and in civic activities as a charter member of the Rainbow Lioness Club, a member of Rebecca's, and the Home Bureau. Shirley’s bright smile, infectious laugh, and never ending love for her family and friends will be greatly missed.
