Shirley R. Moody was born on Oct. 5, 1935 and went home to be with the Lord on Dec. 24, 2019.
Shirley passed away after a short illness on Christmas Eve.
She is preceded in death by her Father, Mother, Husband Jim, 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters and 2 of her own children, David and Windy. And a Granddaughter Dana.
She is survived by her 3 children Debbie (Steve) Smith, Billy (Kathy) Harter, Shelia (AJ) Duce, 6 grandchildren and several great grandchildren.
She lived a good long life. She even through God defeated death back in 1989. From a brain injury the Doctors said she would not live and when she did they said she would never regain the ability to even get out of a bed and had to be fed through a feeding tube. BUT GOD!!!!!!
She faced all the hard times ahead of her and hardly ever complained about anything, what an inspiration she was to us all.
Some of her favorite things to do was get in a car and take a ride. She loved going into stores and just looking at the pretty things.
Her favorite restaurants were Olive Garden (soup and bread sticks) and Cracker Barrel (chicken and dumplings). Never would turn down a cup of coffee. When one of us asked her what she wanted for Christmas, her response was sausage gravy and biscuit. That was her breakfast of choice when Shelia would go every morning to help her get her day started.
She spent the last six months of her life learning to adapt to living in a nursing home. She was making lots of new friends there. Always trying to cheer people up and wanting to help others or offered Shelia and Debbie to help others.
She was a wonderful woman who loved the Lord. She was the most wonderful Mother in the world to her children. She was a great friend to those who were her friends.
A memorial service will be held at 11 AM Saturday, January 18, 2020 at Evangel Temple Assembly of God (ministry building 400), 5755 Ramona Blvd., Jacksonville, FL.

SHE WILL BE LOVED and MISSED FOREVER
