Shirley Loren Grimes (85) of Bloomfield, NM was born to James and Dora Chadd on October 8, 1936 in Mancos, CO. She was the most hardworking woman you would have ever met. She was very kind-hearted, ornery, & sharp-witted. She always told you what you needed to hear, not what you wanted to hear. She loved to sew and crochet. She never met a stranger.
Shirley is preceded in death by her first late husband, Richard Kinslow, and her second late husband, William "Bill" Grimes; her son, Acel Grimes and son-in-law, Scott Cosby; her daughter, Devita Jackson and daughter-in-law, Donna Kinslow; her parents, James and Dora Chadd; her brothers, Harold Chadd, Glen Chadd, Earl Chadd, Kenneth Chadd, and Bill Chadd; her sisters, Irene Smith and Kathleen Benton; and her grandsons, Trace Kinslow and Phelan Mendieta. She is survived by her sons, Tom (Pam) Kinslow, Bob (Cindy) Kinslow, Rick (Debbie) Kinslow, Stewart Kinslow, and Clayton Grimes; her daughters, Karen Cosby and Levita (Joe) Mendieta; her grandchildren, Kim, Michelle, Bobbie Kay, Waylon, Sean, Sheena, Steven, Dawn, Jesse, Brad, Sandy, Cody, Becky, Brian, Monica, Heather, Donnie, Brayden, Trinity, Cody, and Isaiah; her countless great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.

"Thank you for EVERYTHING you did for mom."
