Sister Shirley Figueroa put down her cross to pick up her crown on December 21st, 2008. The viewing was from 9 AM to 10:30 AM at Ahern’s Funeral Home in Northampton (783 Bridge Rd). The service at the funeral home was at 10:30 AM, with Pastor Johnson presiding. Many friends and family members attended. A dear friend of Sister Shirley’s played a trumpet solo of “Come Sunday”. She was a huge fan of jazz and there is video below of the solo trumpetist. The Goodwin Memorial AME Zion Choir sang “Be Lifted Up” and Pastor Johnson presided. We will miss you dear dear Sister Shirley your spirit brought much love to Goodwin. God Bless!!
