Obituary of Shirley J McCullough

Please share a memory of Shirley to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Shirley Janet Mccullough was born on June 18th, 1960, the oldest of four to Walter Mccullough and the late Neila Mae Mccullough in Rochester NY. She visited King St. South Carolina frequently with her parents on summer vacations always speaking of good times with her late grandmother Alice. She grew up on the west side on Hawley St. attending Madison High School. Growing up, she also attended Frankin High School where she did not graduate but did attend Continental School of Beauty where she learned that doing hair was something she loved to do. Franklin High School is where she met her long time significant other the late Robert Orr in the year 1975. They settled down and had five kids. Cassandra, Latisha, Robert Jr., Randy and Dominique. Shirley realized that her life was not complete and adopted a 6th child Nautika in 2000. Shirley worked numerous jobs, including doing hair for family and friends. Shirley discovered that she would change her lifestyle and found she had a passion for taking care of kids, so she provided daycare services for those in need of it. She always welcomed family and friends into her home, in which you would always feel loved. She would give you the best advice and the communication was always real. She would give you food, a place to stay and money if need be. Shirley had a heart of gold and wore it proudly. Shirley was preceded in death by her long time significant other Robert Orr, her mother Neila Mae Mccullough and her sisters Glenda McDowell and Debra Robinson. Shirley is survived by her daughters Cassandra Orr (Terrence Washington), Latisha Putman (Kenneth Putman), Dominique Orr and Nautika Brown. Her sons Robert Jr. Orr (Dionne Orr) of Jacksonville FL., and Randy Orr. Her father Walter Jr. Mccullough and sister Rosalind Hunter (Bobby Hunter) all of Rochester NY.
