Shirley is an 87 year old grandmother and a widow, having 4 sons, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Her birthday is April 2nd and she resides in Ohio. Recently, she is scaling back her videos due to health.[3]

Shirley will be represented as a character in The Elder Scrolls VI.[4] This was as a result of her fans starting a petition to immortalize her in the game.[5] A fan-made Skyrim mod featuring her as a voiced follower was released on May 1, 2021.[6] Her own characters include, Katamet, Ja'rii, La'Corte Dragtail: Thief Of Skyrim, Chronicles of Johndor: Dragonborn, Ward the Mountain Man, Leanna: A Shaman's Tale, Katamet Junior (aka Kat), Uggur the Seeker, El'Mondo: Mercenary For Hire, Seth the Cave Crawler, Rockman the Dragonborn, and Shirley K'ryy in TESOnline. One of her favorite characters is Paarthurnax.[7]
