Shirley Ann Young Sheppard, age 87, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 4, 2019 in San Angelo, Texas. Shirley was born on January 17, 1932 in San Angelo, Texas to Annie Mae North Young and Edward Earl “Peck” Young.

Shirley graduated from San Angelo High School in 1950 where she participated in track and field and was a part of the Bluebonnet Belles. She went onto attend San Angelo College for a short time. She married in 1951 and was the proud mother of three children. She began her professional career as a film editor at KCTV in San Angelo, Texas and then served over 30 years in Civil Service. Her Civil Service career began in El Paso, onto San Angelo then San Antonio and ended in Killeen where she then retired. Because of her love for all children, she volunteered at Fowler Elementary School as a crossing guard with Killeen Independent School District. Shirley was the epitome of a tried and true Dallas Cowboys fan. She had the thrill of her life when she met Dallas Cowboy legend, Drew Pearson and Dallas Cowboy mascot, Rowdy.

Shirley is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Milton E. Young; two sisters, Susie Packer and Mary Smith; and grandson, Derek Sheppard. Shirley is survived by her brother, Sam Wayne Young and wife Diane of San Marcos and sister-in-law, Clara Young of Sealy.

Shirley is survived by her great-grandchildren: Seneca Blackmon; Keily McDaniel; Malori Blackmon; Hunter Blackmon; Aidan Blackmon; Kasie McDaniel; Trystan McDaniel and Elaina Farris.

Ms Shirley was a really big part of our family. She used to live in the trailer park by my house. When I was in elementary school, she would be the woman to make sure everyone was in line for lunch, and then I'd see her after school. She was also this woman for my mother and my mother's siblings. I would go to her house for cookies and she'd talk about her family to me. I had a habit of petting this fake dog she had that sat on her chair. I used to be really selfish and JUST go over for cookies, but she enjoyed my company and after I stopped eating them completely, we would have really good conversations. I would bring my friends over to meet her, and she'd alway complain about the dog next door. I remember once she let me have one of her sodas, and we drank them together and watch some dallas football on television. My mom just told me about her death, she saw it in the newspaper and immediately texted me. We will all miss her dearly, and we hope everyone is doing okay and knows that she is watching over all of you. She is an amazing woman. Please be safe! I know I wasn't as close to her as her family, but I still haven't stopped crying. She meant a lot to us, and I can only imagine how everyone else feels. I wish I could be there to see her, but I'm still in killeen. I'll be sure to visit her the next time I'm in town. Condolences to the rest of her friends and family.
