I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs Johnson. She was our neighbor in Northfield for many years. We (my sisters and I) grew up with Judy and Joan and played many baseball and kickball games in the Johnson's side yard. Mrs Johnson was an inspiration for me to become a teacher. I reconnected with Mrs Johnson when my own children went to school in Absecon. A very sweet lady. Condolences to Judy, Joan, and families. RIP Mrs Johnson...

Sincere condolences to the Johnson family. My mother, Angela, was one of Shirley’s 3 dinner pals—having outings at the Anchorage, Shore Diner, & taking turns entertaining at each others’ homes. I tagged along once & did the driving for a show at Stockton. I remember being very impressed with Shirley’s house on Shore Road & how promptly she was ready when we arrived.
Angela thanks you, Shirley, for bringing smiles, laughter, & good chats over the years! God Bless you always.

My heartfelt sympathy to the Johnson family. Mrs. Johnson was my first grade teacher at H. Ashton Marsh on NJ Ave. I have always had fond memories of her as one of my favorite teachers.

Please accept my condolences. Mrs. Johnson was my teacher in 1st and 2nd grade at the H. Ashton Marsh School in Absecon many years ago. She also lived around the corner from my godparents and was so nice to me when I would stop by as a child. She was one of my favorite teachers in grammar school and I am sure you will have many many wonderful memories of her. With Love and Prayers. Kim (Baker) Turner

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Shirley. I worked with her for many years as the principal for the Marsh School in Absecon. She was a wonderful teacher who inspired and helped many first grade students in her career at the school. Shirley was a very important part of the success that the "first grade teachers" had in the educational and emotional lives of the students they taught. It was an honor for me to work with Shirley.
