Shirley A. (Robbins) Taylor age 84 of Millville passed away peacefully at home Friday morning, October 29, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's disease. She was a graduate of Millville High School class of 1955, and was a lifelong resident of Millville. Before graduating high school Shirley helped out in the family owned Robbins Market at 5th and Broad Streets. Right out of high school she began working as an Administrative Secretary and Comptroller for several local car dealerships starting with Bozarth Motors, C.

Shirley was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star of New Jersey, Shekinah Chapter No. 82 of Millville, and achieved the position of Worthy Matron during her almost 60 years of active membership. She was also a longtime member of the Second United Methodist Church in Millville. Shirley enjoyed spending time with her family, watching game shows and the news on TV, and watching and feeding the birds from her front porch. Shirley also enjoyed going out to dinner with her family at her two favorite restaurants, the Millville Queen and Larry's 2 in Vineland.
