Shirley Law

June 19, 1956 — March 26, 2020


Our beloved angel made her transition to be with the lord on March 26th 2020. Shirley Yvonne Law was born in Kankakee, Illinois on June 19th 1956 and was raised in Akron Ohio where she graduated from North High School. She accepted Christ at Hills Temple FBC where she met her husband of 42 years, Min. Ronald Law Sr.

She was employed at Summa Health System as a Secretary for over 35 years where she carried out her duties masterfully as a source for many! Her unique and beautiful soul will forever be remembered. Shirley loved arts and crafts and made immaculate handmade jewelry and refurbished pieces. She had a special place in her heart for the downtrodden and made it her mission to minister to those who needed it most.

She is preceded in death by her father, Clifford Cooke, her grandmother Annie D. McIntyre and her sister Nita. She leaves to cherish her memory her mother Annette Cooke; her husband Ronald Law Sr, her children Ronald (Lanay) Law. jr, Rashad (Mindy) Law, Renaya A.
