Tinsley honors wife with scholarship

A scholarship fund to assist children with learning disabilities has been set up in memory of Shirley Tinsley, wife of industry sales veteran Rusty Tinsley. Shirley was killed in an automobile accident in November while on vacation with her husband.

Rusty, vice president of sales for Ostrow International, New York, was seriously injured in the accident and is recuperating at his home in Bryn Mawr, Pa.

The Tinsley family has created the Shirley Tinsley Scholarship Fund to benefit students at The Crossroads School, located here, which helps children with learning disabilities. The goal of the memorial fund is to provide a scholarship for one student a year at the school.

Shirley worked for 13 years as an administrative assistant at The Crossroads School. In addition to her work at the school, Shirley served on the board of directors for United Cerebral Palsy of Delaware County for 10 years.

Donations may be made to The Shirley Tinsley Scholarship Fund; The CrossRoads School; P.O. Box 730; 1681 North Valley Road; Paoli, Pa., 19301.

In addition to her husband, she leaves two daughters, Ann Mark and Susie Chianelli; and her brother, Ernie Schmidt.
