Shirley Irwin Honored By City Commission For Years of Service.

Shirley Irwin, a thirty year resident of the City of Bloomfield Hills and a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals  from 1998 to 2011 passed away on August 28. Mayor Zambricki described her as private person who didn't tell people of her illness and toughed it out  to almost the very end. By profession a school teacher, she was also a member of the Village Club and  Open Hunt Club. She is survived by her husband of almost a half century, Dr. Alexander Irwin, and her daughter, Melissa Hurley. Both were present at the September 13th City Commission  meeting to accept a resolution honoring her service to the city and to deliver one last "motion" from Shirley which she had written before her death. 
"It was with great pleasure that I, Shirley Ann Irwin, served with rational, logical people who gave of their time, of their efforts and of their loving care in the best interests of our City of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Carry on in this tradition."
