Shirley Mourey

(Jan 14, 1934 to Apr 28, 2012)

When it came to Shirley, she did it her way. Never one to hide her opinion, she told you it like it was, even being known to give out a lecture when needed. When she was right she was right, and even when she was wrong she was still somehow right. But she balanced her self-assertiveness with genuine affection. She knew how to give you a hard time, and make you love her for it. When it came time for leisure she loved bus trips to Atlantic City. But her tastes were as unique as she was. She always enjoyed the blood and guts of a good horror films as well as the sheer beauty of Ricky Martin. rn In her youth Shirley had a particular distain for a young boy named Ed. In fact, she used to ride her bike by his house just to yell at him. Funny then, that by her late teens, she went from saying “I hate you Ed Mourey” to “Ed Mourey, I do”. Before his passing in 1993, their 44 years of marriage were blessed by their children: Freda Polito of Burlington, Ed Mourey of Edgewater Park, Walt Mourey of Florida and Shirley Polito (Bill) of Delanco. Shirley is also survived by her grandchildren: Elizabeth Aquino (Chuck), Howard Knight, Jr, Russell Knight, John Mullans, Elizabeth Salber, Eddie Mourey, Stephen Mourey, Kayla Mourey and Samantha Mourey, her 7 great-grandchildren, her sister Betty Tice and by many nieces and nephews.rn Come celebrate Shirley’s 78 strong-willed years (Jan. 14, 1934-April 28, 2012) Saturday from 8-10:30 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside, where the service will be at 10:30. Interment Lakeview Memorial Park, Cinnaminson. rn
