Shirley was born to Harvey G. and Viola S. Kell on December 28, 1934. She graduated from Newport High School in 1952, from where she relocated to Harrisburg, PA to work at United Telephone Company. While in Harrisburg, she met and then married John Renshaw of Camp Hill, PA, in 1960. Shirley and John had two daughters, Cynthia and Christine. The family lived in Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Maryland. Shirley and John lived in Bel Air, MD from 1992 until 2018, when they moved to Parkville, MD. Shirley was very active in the communities in which she resided. Most recently, she volunteered at Tabitha House, a faith-based charity in Bel Air, at her church, Bel Air United Methodist Church, and at the Treasure’s Chest, a benevolent fund benefitting residents of Oak Crest Senior Living Community, where she and John currently live. Shirley was also passionate about animals, especially cats. She volunteered at the Harford County Animal Shelter and Luna’s House in Edgewood. Shirley is survived by her husband of 61 years, John, and her two daughters, Cynthia Lion of Reston, VA, Christine Gregory of Havre de Grace, MD, and grandchildren Hannah and Margaret Gregory, also of Havre de Grace. Shirley also made many lifetime friends throughout the years who will miss her. Shirley will be buried at Rolling Green Cemetery in Camp Hill, PA. There will be a family ceremony held on November 26th. There will be a Celebration of Life service at Bel Air United Methodist Church in early January 2022.
