Little Elm (Denton County)
|Death: ||Jul. 29, 1973|
Shirley Louise Britton was the daughter of Mary E. Overstreet and Thomas Lee Feaster. Mary and Tom were married only a short time and then divorced. Mary died in 1926 when Shirley was only 3 yrs old. Tom Feaster would not take his young daughter as he had already remarried (Alma) and started his own family in Denton, Texas.
Shirley lived with her grandfather, David Overstreet, until she was 13 yrs old when David had a heart attack and died. She then went to live in Buckner's Orphans Home in Dallas, Tx until she was 18.
She met and married Lee Amos Britton in December 1941; they had 3 children together (Jimmy Lee, Delores Ann, Carlton Lynn). Shirley died of breast cancer in July 1973 at only 50 yrs of age, leaving behind her husband, 3 children, and 5 grandchildren (Brad Britton, Blake Britton, Scott Blansett, Monica Blansett, Lori Britton).
Sundays were a special time for her family, as they always looked forward to the fantastic biscuits she made for breakfast before church. She had a special knack for baking just about anything - cakes, pies (her coconut pie was to die for!), banana pudding, date nut loaf at Christmas. Shirley was a devout Christian and raised her children in that manner.
Shirley loved to crochet and embroider - talents almost lost by today's standards.
She was a loyal and dedicated employee of Collins Radio and received her 25 year pin while in the hospital.
Shirley was a wonderful wife and mother and is greatly missed by her family.
"Perheps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy."
