Today’s Video Showcase is dedicated to Dame Shirley’s mother Mrs. Eliza Jane Mendi. She encouraged her daughter to step into show business and they had a very good relationship. Mrs. Mendi passed away in 1981 at the age of 80.

As a small bonus for this blog we managed to get our hands on the original script from the 1993 episode of This Is Your Life that Dame Shirley was on. Read below a hilarious part about Dame Shirley and the US Navy that unfortunately was edited out of the show!

  2. Beautiful article to a woman who over obstacles is the greatest woman performer, and an inspiration to many. God continue to bless her with great health, good friends, and the knowledge of his great love and concern for her. I pray she will receive Christ into her life, as Savior, and best friend.
