Born in Beaver Dam, KY, on Dec. 7, 1927, to El­bert and Nan­nie Shively, she had lived most of her al­most 90 years in her beloved Ken­tucky and was proud she never lost her ac­cent!

She also worked as Ex­ten­sion As­sis­tant in the Uni­ver­sity of KY Ex­ten­sion Dept for five years in Madis­onville teach­ing Ex­panded Food and Nu­tri­tion to needy fam­i­lies.

She had a zest for life, an in­fec­tious laugh, and of­ten a mis­chievous twin­kle in her eye. Other var­ied in­ter­ests in­cluded danc­ing, bi­cy­cling, roller­skat­ing, paint­ing, needle­work, lis­ten­ing to gospel mu­sic, and trav­el­ing — which in later years took her across the coun­try to visit her “beloved great grands!”

Other than her fam­ily, she was most proud of the times she served as a mis­sion­ary un­der the Home Mis­sion Board of the SBC. Those in­cluded a year in Tulsa, OK, min­is­ter­ing to bat­tered women in a home­less shel­ter and coun­selor at Berea Col­lege.
