Shirley Boyer
Birthplace: Cleveland, Ohio Resided In: North Royalton, Ohio Cemetery: Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery

Shirley Boyer, longtime resident of North Royalton, Ohio, has gone to meet her beloved dogs at the Rainbow Bridge on April 4, 2020. She was the daughter of the late Charles and Aimee (Unger) Boyer. She leaves behind her sister Karen Andersen (Earl-deceased), cousin Linda Scoby (James-deceased) and was the sister to Charles Jr. (Mary-living), Lyle, and Claudia Jordan (John) all deceased. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews,grandnieces and grandnephews.

After her retirement from over forty years at NASA-Lewis as a Contract Specialist, she volunteered many hours supporting several all-breed kennel clubs in this area and the Irish Setter Club of Ohio.

The family would like to thank the entire staff at Plum Creek Assisted Living for taking such great care of her this past year. Such a wonderful group of caring, compassionate and loving personnel.

In lieu of flowers and because of her great love for spring flowers, she asked that everyone plant a dozendaffodils in her memory.

Her ashes will be returned to the earth at Sunset Memorial Park later this summer. At that time there will be a small gathering of friends and family to celebrate her life together.

<p>She will always be my Aunt Shirley. One of the kindest, most hospitable women I ever knew. I admired her greatly.</p>

I knew Shirley for many years of showing and enjoying our Irish Setters, and through her good health and bad. I visited her at her North Royalton home many times to visit and assist her in working on the ISCA newsletter. You always knew where Shirley stood on any subject (smile). Such a great person; and I regret having lost touch with her over the years, but have never forgotten her friendship. Rest In Peace.


Shirley and I go way back and were good friends with the Irish Setter Club of Ohio, and also outside the dog world. Shirley had a great memory and we often laughed about things that took place many years ago. She never forgot anything! We will miss you!

A sweet determined soul who readily shared her flowers, friendship and love. My house is surrounded by lilacs and rose of Sharon she shared with me. Forever grateful for her friendship!

I met her sometime within the last ten years. When we met we both knew many of the same people. Even so we never had met each other though both of us remember people shocked that we didn’t know each other. I loved talking about rescue dogs with her. I learned so much. Again as I read her obit and saw her pic I recognized another way that our paths crossed. My parents were at Plum Creek and I knew this woman was named Shirley - I even ate at her table one day. But I never made the connection that it was Shirley Boyer. Blessings and peace to you Shirley.

I met Shirley at the Richland County Kennel Club. She was so knowledgable about dogs and dog shows and willingly shared that knowledge. Every year she showed up at the Cleveland shows to man the telephone and information desk. Truly a loss to the dog world. I will miss her.

I am so sorry to hear about Shirley. She was a great lady. She joined our kennel club, Richland County KC, here in Mansfield and was our AKC rep for many years.
She didn’t hesitate to speak her mind, was a force to be reckoned with and I miss her guidance and insight every day.

My heart goes out to the entire family. I only met Aunt Shirley once when I went back to Ohio to visit with my Grandma Karen. But she was very kind. She will be deeply missed.
