Along with her first husband, Jack Wei and two sons, Shirley immigrated to the U.S. in 1968. Subsequently divorced and later met the love of her life, Gabriel Lee. On February 12, 1977 in New York City, New York she married Gabriel Lee. While in New York she was a member of Woodcrest Club and worked for Citibank for 11 years.

Shirley had a great love for golfing, dancing and most of all spending time with her family, she was an amazing mother and grandmother.
