Shirley was born on August 13, 1946 in Lowville, NY, a daughter of Winifred A. and Aletha Crouse Haggerty. She attended a small country schoolhouse on the Number 3 Road in Lowville until the 5th grade when she transferred to Lowville Academy from where she graduated in 1964.

She married Thomas H. Briot on February 27, 1965 at St. Stephen’s Church in Croghan.  She and her husband began their family in Castorland, before moving to Croghan where they continued to raise their five daughters.

In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Shirley also worked at the Five and Dime Store in Lowville before moving on to work at Beaverite Products, Inc., in Beaver Falls until the company went on strike in the 1980’s.

She was predeceased by her parents, her brother, Winifred W. Haggerty, and nephews Michael Haggerty and Todd Beyer.

Shirley enjoyed visiting casinos, camping with her family and search-a-word puzzles.  She always loved hosting family gatherings with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Tom and very sorry to hear of Shirley's passing..we first met Shirley on the night of your wedding when you stopped at the square dance in New was sort of like a second reception-a good time. Our paths crossed many times over the years as we worked together,(@Beaverite), and friendships were built among our children.
