Miss Shirley passed this morning around 10 am.

Wear your beers at half mast all day. She was a great part of many people's lives in Memphis and will be missed for as long as those who loved her can tell stories. And probably beyond that.

Onlly met her for one weekend. She was so engaging n downright appreciative that I was there- In Memphis, in her bar. My deepest condolenses. To those that knew her and those tht didnt get a chance. She is truly an icon. One of the reasons Memphis is so fucking cool. I am so glad I was able to order some beers n not drop n "f" banger under her tender watch.

Ditto. She was one of the nicest folks I have ever met and a piece of what made Memphis feel so welcoming. RIP.

This is really sad. She was a character!!

RIP Shirley.

My first time in Memphis, back in 97, got taken to The Lamplighter, carded by Shirley, and later that evening she appeared from behind the bar to whack a large bug off the wall with her shoe or slipper. Man, I'll never forget the determined look on her face, which seemed to incorporate a sly touch of 'wonder what they'll make of this', as she came hurtling across the floor - well, she seemed pretty nippy, given the jetlag...
