Shirley Aileen (Jackson) Haynes, 81, of Mertzon, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother was born in Vining, Kan. on July 8, 1931, and was welcomed into heaven on Saturday, July 14, 2012. She was one of five children born to Lester and Fay Jackson of Clifton, Kan.

She spent her childhood on her parent's farm, where she developed her love for all animals. She raised crows, ducks, racoons, rabbits, chickens, ducks, skunks, dogs and finally, her precious cats. Shirley married Bud on May 23, 1949, and they shared 61 years of marriage. Together they had four children; 11 grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

In 1957, Bud relocated the family to Eldorado. There she started her beautician's career. She specialized in making elderly folks feel beautiful. She carried on this tradition in Andrews, Big Lake and Mertzon (Playhouse Beauty Shop). She was a member of the Eastern Star and a member of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Mertzon. The love of her church family helped to sustain her through the many trials she has had in her life in these past few years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Rollin (Bud); and son David. She is survived by her two sons and daughters-in-law, Bob and Linda Haynes of Fort Stockton, and Mike and Stacy Haynes of Eldorado; and one daughter and son-in-law, Alona and Gene Shoffner of San Angelo.

A celebration of her life will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 17, at the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), US 67 at Juanita, Mertzon, Texas. Burial will follow in the Mertzon Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to the Salvation Army, 215 Gillis, San Angelo, TX, 76903; or the First Christian Church, P.O. Box 791, Mertzon, TX 76941. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Kerbow Funeral Home, Eldorado, Texas.
