Shirley appears to be alive.

She married Wyndham Lewis Gary.

He died in 1989.

CADI: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VPM1-1Y2

His obit, 13 June 1989, mentions his wife and that her maiden name was Spaulding and a son named after him.

Probate: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/23373386/wyndham_l_gary_probate/

DOB from passenger ship record previously posted matches what's on public records.
