Shirley Louise Feaster Britton
Birth: Apr. 19, 1923
Little Elm
Denton County
Texas, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1973
Dallas
Dallas County
Texas, USA

Shirley Louise Britton was the daughter of Mary E. Overstreet and Thomas Lee Feaster. Mary died when Shirley was only 3 years old. She was raised by her grandparents, Ada and David Overstreet, until their deaths.

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 homemade 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 battling breast cancer.

Shirley was a wonderful wife and loving mother and is greatly missed by her family.

Happy Birthday, Mom. So many years have passed but your birthday is forever etched in my mind. How I wish you were here to celebrate it with us. I love and miss you just as much as I did the day you left.
