In Memory

Shirlee Darlene Russell (Samuel Wheeler) - Class Of 1966

Born October 7, 1948 in Oakland CA

Departed this life November 28, 1989 in Walnut Creek, CA at the age of 41

Final Resting Place: Oakmont Memorial Park  Lafayette, CA

Cause of Death; Brain Cancer


During High School Shirlee could be found on the track and field as she was quite the athlete. Upon graduation Shirley and Phyllis attended San Leandro Beauty College together. Upon completion she was a licensed cosmotologist - and a good one at that! We moved away from one another but always picked up where we left off at our last get-together. A special memory was when Shirlee came to visit my family when we lived in Hawaii. She's been sorely missed by many!

In loving memory of my friend,
Shirlee Darlene Russell-Samuel-Wheeler...
At Rest November 28, 1989.
Brain Cancer took Shirlee from this earth much too early,
leaving behind a beautiful daughter Julie.

I still miss you my friend!

Shirlee,we grew up together living on the same street maybe three doors down from us.I remember playing together as kids,almost as if it were yesterday. Your passing left us all in shock.How could we have lost one of our close friends so early. May you forever rest in peace.   Larry.
