Shirley T. Fortune



Shirley Temple Fortune, 81, of Fredericksburg peacefully transitioned to her home in glory to live with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at Mary Washington Hospital.

Shirley leaves behind to cherish her memories, her loving husband, Eddie; six children Lisa, Melissa, Sandra, Dwayne, Karl and Dean; nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; four sisters; two brothers; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Shirley was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt and made every effort to spend time with the family. As a good mother would do, she worked hard to make sure her children were provided for, and that they had everything they needed to be happy and successful in life. Her home was always open to visiting relatives and friends. Her sweet smile, her loving affection and that twinkle in her eye made you know you were welcome in her home at any time, day or night.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 14 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg.

A service will held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 15 at Rappahannock Indian Baptist Church. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.
