Shirley loved spending time at her old historic house in Sylvan Park with her family and friends. She loved antiques, genealogy, and working in her flower gardens.

She will always remain in our thoughts and prayers forever.

  3. Nick Bailey says:

    Sylvan Park has lost a truly special lady, who did so much for her beloved neighborhood through decades of volunteer work. She was a protector of Richland Park and a patron of historic homes, while living in a grand Victorian home in a National Register Historic District. Those of us who were fortunate to know and love her will miss her dearly, but her good work will live on in a hundred different ways.

  4. Sheryl Bowers Spear says:

    It is still so very hard to think of you as being gone. You were and always will be the GREATEST Aunt any girl could have. You gave so much of yourself to others and I love you very much. I am very blessed by you calling me the daughter you never had. Love you dearly, Sheryl

  5. Larry Mays says:

    Sorry to hear about Shirley. I pray God gives you strength for the days ahead. I haven’t seen the family in years, but remember a lot of good times when I was a teenager. God bless you

  6. June Hannah says:

    We sincerely hold all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Shirleys flair for living was reflected in her home and her life. May your cherished memories comfort and sustain you as you mourn her passing. We pray God’s blessings for you always, Morris and June

  7. Mary Freels Church says:

    Shirley Fay Hunt Greer is my mother’s cousin, but I grew up calling her Aunt Shirley. Some of my favorite childhood memories are those in which Aunt Shirley played a major role. I learned so much from her about living a life full of passion, beauty, and art. I pray that we all can take comfort in the precious memories of Aunt Shirley, and may these memories be a forever blessing.

  8. Willie Robinson says:

    I am Willie Robinson, cousin in the Greer side. Shirley was a wonderful lady and will be greatly missed by my wife Kathy and me. Sympathy to Jack and family.

  9. Linda Loney Ayers says:

    So sorry for your loss, may your memories help you through this time. My Grandma, Ethel Clark Cook Donnell was Aunt Kate’s sister. When my Mom (Alice Cook Loney) and I visited Tennessee from Iowa we always visited with Shirley and enjoyed our time together. My Mom reminisced about Tennessee often and Shirley was always in our conversation. Again, sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful lady inside and out.

  10. Carleen M Hunt says:

    My name is Carleen Hunt I met Shirley through Ancestry. My Great Grandfather was Daniel Hobart Hunt and my Grandfather was Ethel Lee Hunt from Daniel Hobart Hunt’s second marriage. Shirley told me her family was from Daniel Hobart Hunt first marriage, so we were distant cousins. We would email each other and talk about God, family and life. She was the sweetest person I wish I could have met her in person. My sympathy and prayers for peace go to her family.
