Shirley Marie Bellamy, a devoted wife, loving mother, and cherished member of the community, passed away on April 13, 2024. Born on November 16, 1935, Shirley led a life filled with unwavering love and dedication to her family.

After graduating from Isaac Litton High School in 1954, Shirley embarked on a career that saw her working for many years as an operator at BellSouth and later at AT&T. Her strong work ethic and determination were evident in everything she pursued.

Shirley was known for her creative spirit and strong faith. She found joy in quilting, sewing, and cake decorating, showcasing her artistic talents in various forms. Her passion for these hobbies reflected her attention to detail and craftsmanship.

A proud Air Force wife, Shirley supported her husband during his deployments while also raising their children with grace and strength. Her independence and sassy personality endeared her to all who knew her. She was a member of Rock Springs but had recently been attending Grace Baptist Church, where she found comfort in her faith community.

One of Shirley's proudest accomplishments was raising a loving family. She poured her heart into creating memorable experiences for her grandchildren, often traveling with them to attend their games. Shirley's ability to accomplish anything she set her mind to was a testament to her resilience and determination.

Shirley will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her beloved children, Ross Steven (YMary) Bellamy, Richard Shawn (Gayla) Bellamy, Shelia R.
