Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley attended First Baptist Church Sedalia for awhile. I will always remember her exuberance for the Lord, her wealth of knowledge of scripture she was always willing to share, her joy in singing praises, and the fact that she never knew a stranger. Prayers of comfort and peace for your family. Cheryl Preuitt
