At a very early age, Shirley received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Personal Savior, was baptized and received the Holy Ghost. She was well known for her testifying, singing and shouting. She didn’t mind praising God! Sis. Shirley Taylor was an active member of Little Rock Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, 94 Webster Street, under the late pastor, Elder Joseph Douglas.
