Johnston; Aunt of Douglas (Sharon) Storch and Tom Storch; preceded in death by parents, Thomas and Nellie Elliott and sister, Marjorie (Champ) Storch. Shirley was beacon of the Penn Hills Community.

She and her husband were devoted to serving and participating in the community and they did so together. Her activities included serving as President of Penn Hills Garden Club.
