Very sorry to hear that. I had no idea she lived locally. What an amazing life!

Shirley Temple Black was a wonderful actress! I can't help but watch films like A LITTLE PRINCESS and HEIDI and feel very warm inside. I saw them in Mexico (they were dubbed into Spanish) while I was a child. I read somewhere that, during the Great Depression, President Roosevelt said of her, "For just 15 cents, an American can go to a movie and look at the smiling face of a baby and forget his troubles."
I am happy to hear of the good memories that local residents have of her. Sometimes, it seems like the things that made America so great for so long are rapidly changing. In a world where society makes "stars" out of people performing immorally on stage or where young stars flood the newspapers for all that they do wrong, it is great to know that a former child star can grow up and do something wonderful with her life.
RIP Shirley Temple Black!

I grew up with her movies, and admired her efforts as a politician in a time when women were so limited in what they were allowed to do.
She lived a good life, never let her successes go to her head, and retired well.
Rest well, old friend.
