    Shirley was the last remaining member of the family who had been our
    closest neighbors as I grew up as a child in the 1950’s and 1960’s. One couldn’t ask for better neighbors. Mr. Wes gave me my first summer job of driving a tractor 6 days a week and Mrs. Clarice spoiled me with delicious snacks. As spouses married to military men, Shirley and Claudia Faye saw much of the world, but they never forgot their home roots. Lester’s sons often spent much of their summertime school breaks here, returning to their respective schools each fall. The years have flown by, leaving many precious memories of wonderful community neighbors such as the Campbells. They were “good people” who worked hard, revered God and His church, and helped their neighbors.
    Over the years, I occasionally saw Shirley or members of her family. I had the privilege of having Jack as a student when I taught school at Carlisle. I’d sometimes see Shirley in a store here or there. Lately, I
    saw her often in the nursing home. Though stricken with illness, she still
    remembered my name and was able to recall and share memories from the distant past. She will be missed, but her cherished legacy will endure.
    Our prayers continue for the family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide peace, comfort, strength, and assurance in this time of sorrow. With sympathy, Billy and Gail Booth family

  2. “Aunt Shirley” as she was known to me was a special lady. She never failed to let you know she loved you. I will always have a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and many friends. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

    Shirley and my mother (Mildred Campbell Rogers)were 1st cousins. I can remember Shirley coming to visit and she was such a nice lady! My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time.
