Obituary

Shirley Jeaneen (Orrick) Boggs of Cedar Mountain, N.C passed away peacefully Saturday,
January 4, 2020 with her husband Bobby Lee Boggs by her side. Shirley was born on
November 23, 1932 in Lanett Alabama. Shirley was a wonderful mother to three children,
Rhonda Leigh (Larry Sparks) of Birmingham, Alabama, Gregory Lynn (Kendall Callaway) of
Birmingham, Alabama, and Susan Elaine of Cedar Mtn, NC. She is preceded in death by
parents Clevie Lee and Thelma (Wright) Orrick, her in-laws Fred L. and Aline (Cosper) Boggs,
sister Elsie Carol (Cooke) and Russell Cook all of Lanett. Survivors include her husband Bobby
Lee Boggs and her brother-in-law Charles Boggs.

Shirley, fondly known as “Mimi” by her nine grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren and nieces
and nephews was a treasured wife, mother, and grandmother. An amazing cook and friend to
everyone, she spent her early years attending church at First Baptist Church in Lanett where
her father was treasurer for a number of years and her mother was a Sunday School teacher.
She spent most of her time in youth work and became very close friends with four girls. Dud,
Bebs, San, and Sybil shared their early lives together and became life long friends. Every year
they traveled together for a week to rekindle their friendships and share their love for living and
one another.|

After her husband Bobby retired and the two moved to Cedar Mountain, she decided to go to
work in the infant department of a local church. This quickly became a great passion of hers. As
the years developed and these infants that she cared for grew into adulthood, their parents
would update Shirley with their whereabouts and share photos of them grown with families of
their own. This thrilled her to have been a part of so many lives.

Over the years, Shirley and Bobby developed new relationships in their church family. Shirley
relished in entertaining their Sunday School class, their pastor and many of their friends at their
home during Christmas week for fellowship. She loved cooking for everyone and watching
everyone enjoy her meals!

On the day of her death, Bobby, the love of her life for 68 years opened a letter she had given
him on their 50th wedding anniversary. She stated what she wanted to wear, who she wanted
as pallbearers, what songs to be played and what Bible verses she wanted read. Their’s was a
true love story.

Shirley’s funeral will be held Wednesday, January 8th at 11:00 with visitation at 10 am at The
First Baptist Church in Brevard. Burial will be Saturday, January 11th at 11 am at Oakwood
Cementery in Lanett, Alabama for family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in her honor to First Baptist Church in Brevard, NC
