Shirley was born June 1, 1945, in Houston, to Obie and Georgie (Hayes) Stafford. She attended school in Haskell, and Carnegie, OK., and graduated from Electra High School, Electra. She married Teddy G. Bond May 26, 1963. They celebrated their 50th anniversary last year. Shirley and Ted lived in Oklahoma City, OK., where she owned and operated an accounting service. In 1983, they moved to Arlee, MT., where they lived until 2008, when they bought their home in Iowa Park. From that time until the present, they lived in Montana during the summer months and returned to Texas for the winter. Recently retired, the couple returned to Iowa Park to live year-round.

Survivors include her husband; a brother, Donald of Arlee, MT.; and a sister, Linda Posey, of Iowa Park.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and a sister, Billie Jan Campbell.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations be made to the Arlee Senior Citizens Center in Arlee, MT., where she volunteered her time for many years.
