Shirley H. Whitcraft, who worked in real estate sales for more than three decades, died of lung cancer Nov. 15 at the Finksburg home of a daughter. She was 70.

Shirley Schmidt was born in Baltimore, raised in Randallstown and was a graduate of Randallstown High School.

After earning her real estate license, Mrs. Whitcraft worked in sales for Zelma B. Ensor and in recent years for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Reisterstown.

Mrs. Whitcraft enjoyed antiquing and traveling to Atlantic City and Charlestown, W.Va., where she liked to gamble. She spent the winter months in Florida, family members said.

Her husband of many years, Edward N. Goering Sr., died in 1989, and her subsequent marriage to Craig C. Whitcraft ended in divorce.

Services were Monday.

Surviving are a son, Edward N. Goering Jr. of Frederick; two daughters, Wendy S. Lake of Finksburg, and Sandra M. Shaikh of Owings Mills; two brothers, Roland A. Schmidt of Finksburg and Robert E. Schmidt of Waxhaw, N.C.; three grandchildren; and her companion, Charles R. Winegard of Pasadena.
