Former City Manager remembers Shirley Merlington

While serving as Cedar Springs City Manager from 1991-96, I had the distinct pleasure to work with Shirley Merlington. Shirley’s tireless work with the Red Flannel Festival, and the Chamber of Commerce, was a model for all of us to follow. Shirley made sure the Chamber’s relationship with the City was positive and energized. 

This week, I received a call from Shirley’s daughter-in-law letting me know that Shirley had passed away. Since the call, I’ve been reminiscing about the many great things Shirley did for Cedar Springs. 

It’s important that we honor those who made us better. Shirley gave everything she had to the Red Flannel City. 

May we all take a moment and reflect on those who have made Cedar Springs strong.
