As a family we would like to send a Big Thank You to her caregivers for taking such great care of her; Rebecca Wilson, Jackie Waddell, Kim Baker, Natalie Carnahan. Thank You all for taking such good care of mom. And to Guardian Angel Hospice, you were all awesome.
Also a Big Thank You to Jimmy Coulter, you have been in our lives since 2001, I know my mom and dad thought of you as one of their own. Thank You for everything you have done for them.
Shirley was known for making the best mush, stewed apples, bread pudding, and cabbage soup. But most of all she lived for the flea markets and rummage sales. She was a wonderful Avon Lady in her earlier years, and believe me it’s still in her house. She will definitely be missed by all that loved her.
Funeral service will be 4:00 PM Tuesday February 1, 2022 at Dickerson Funeral Home in Veedersburg with Pastor Dave Sims officiating. Visitation will begin at 2:00 PM Tuesday and continue until the time of service at 4:00 PM. Burial will be at Rockfield Cemetery near Veedersburg. In lieu of flowers the family would prefer memorial contributions be given to CFL Animal Rescue. Online condolences at www.dickersonfuneralhome.com
