What is life? Life is a series of moments with an abundance of laughter, tears and joy knit together by one beginning and one ending. It’s not the amount of moments that matter, it’s how the moments are used that define our lives. Shirley Ann (Burdette) Logue made the most of all of her moments and passed away on January 12, 2021 at the age of 83.
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Shirley Ann Logue (Burdette), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
She was born to shine in life on November 27, 1937. It was a Saturday, and what a beautiful Saturday it must have been, as her family of 5 grew by one precious baby girl. Shirley was born to Samuel and Bertha (Mullinex) Burdette with older brother Leroy and sisters Noreen and Elva.
Growing up a tomboy, playing in the mud, climbing trees, excelling in sports and serving as the president of her 1955 Mt. Airy High School class were just a part of who she was. In 1956, Shirley married Robert (Bob) Logue and in 1965 helped found Bob’s Welding and Equipment. She continued to be involved with the family business until her death. Shirley always said to do what you love and she did exactly that, enjoying an incredible 63 year career as a hairdresser.
Shirley had the ability to befriend anyone anywhere and was often lovingly considered a second mom to many. If you were friends, you were family to her. She had a heart of gold and It came naturally to her to help people in any way she could.
Shirley stayed active and involved in everything her children and later her grandchildren were a part of. It didn’t matter what it was, “MiMi” was there cheering them on. She was a great cook, but was known for her phenomenal baking skills.
Warrior-strong is how she lived her life, instilling in her children that no matter how many times life knocks you down, always get back up, embrace the lesson, find the hidden joy and hold it close.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 49 years, Bob Logue and grandson Case Laney.
Her greatest joy in life was being a mother and grandmother. She leaves behind sons, David Logue and fiancé’ Karen Harvey, and Michael Logue; daughter, Shelly Logue Laney and son-in-law, Mike Laney, all of New Windsor, as well as daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Charlie Hahn of Libertytown; grandchildren, Lauren and Collin Logue and Hannah, Grant, Emmie, Brynnie and Josie Laney. In addition to a bounty of dear friends and family, she also leaves behind former daughter- in-law, Beth Logue; brother-in-law, Larry Gartrell, niece and nephew, Debbie Gartrell Kemp and Allen Gartrell; nephew Roger Aleshire, nieces Angie and Stacey Pollatos and Shelly Aleshire.
Gone from this earthly world, but never from our hearts, Shirley will live on in every family gathering, her love of parties, pranks and good jokes, as well as her scrumptious desserts.
