Shirley East Mrs. Shirley East, 79 of Arab, Alabama, passed away peacefully on February 17, 2024, at Marshall Manor Nursing Home in Guntersville, Alabama.

She loved traveling with Alvie and her family and was always eager to share stories from the past. She retired from Huntsville Hospital so she could care for her husband prior to his death.
