SHIFLETT, Shirley Ann, 90, of Brooksville, FL, went home to be with our heavenly Father on April 10, 2021. 

Born in Osierfield, GA November 15th, 1930 and raised in Tampa, FL.  She graduated from Hillsborough High School in 1948 and soon after married her high school sweetheart, Clyde David Shiflett Jr. (David) who preceded her in passing and was awaiting her arrival by the pearly gates.

She is survived by her four children, Deborah Bedell, Cynthia Ressel (Jimmy), Larry Shiflett (Barbara), of Brooksville, FL, and Michael Shiflett (Sandy) of Lake City, FL; sisters, Mary Lou Martin (Bruce) of Crawfordville, FL and Joy Lee Smith of Manchester, TN; grandchildren, David, Ben, Scott, Blair, Star, Belinda, Amber, and Justin; great-grandchildren, Mikinley, Samuel, William, Bryce, Aurora, and Summer.
