Shirley A. Taylor, 79, of Altheimer, Arkansas, went to be with the Lord on March 22, 2020.

She was born on October 26, 1940, in Tom Nolan, Mississippi to Thurman and Jessie Houston Adams.

Shirley graduated from Pine Bluff High in 1958. After graduation she worked for Jefferson Supply. In 1963, she started working at the First National Bank in Altheimer as an officer and when the bank closed in 2013 she then worked at home bookkeeping for several entities. One of her achievements was her dedication to the Flat Bayou Cemetery and work that she and her husband, Lee Edward, did.

She was also an author of two children's Christian books, The Cross and the Egg, written in 1999, and The Stable Boy, written in 2012.

Shirley was a member of the Altheimer United Methodist Church for 50 years. She loved cooking and having church members at their home for lunch on Sundays.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Thurman and Jessie Adams; and a brother, Harold Adams.

Survivors include her loving husband of 59 years, Lee Edward Taylor; brother, Larry Bennett of Heber Springs, Arkansas; two foster children, Debbie Brokaw of Mountain Home, Arkansas and Kerrie Fuentes of Ada, Oklahoma; and many nieces and nephews.

Lee Edward would also like to give a special thanks to Connie Carter.

A private graveside service will be 2:00 p.m., Thursday, March 26, 2020 at Flat Bayou Cemetery with Rev. Lance Hickerson officiating. Due to CDC guidelines on attendance, we ask that those people not in the immediate family view the service on our live stream at Shirley will lie in state at Robinson’s Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.. We ask that people come in small groups of no more than eight at a time.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Flat Bayou Cemetery, 3808 N. Gilliand Road Altheimer, AR 72204.
