December 10, 1942 - April 28, 2018
Shirley Marie Smith Prince, 75, journeyed to be with her Lord and Savior April 28, 2018 from her home in Hayden, AL. Shirley was born in Morris, Alabama on December 10, 1942 to David Edward and Myrtle Maebelle Smith. She married Harry Andrew Prince August 26, 1960 and began a legacy of love. She enjoyed taking care of everyone around her whether it was her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews, friends, or just about anyone she met. She had an infectious smile and a caring heart that touched everyone. She was genuinely concerned about everybody and made everyone feel special. Her second greatest passion, after loving everybody she knew, was fishing and she could be found doing so most anytime she had a chance. She was currently a member of Smokerise Baptist Church. Shirley is survived by her husband of 57 years, Harry Prince; two daughters, Sonya Prince and Alisha (Toby) Shedd; two sons Andy (Karen) Prince and Derek (Lora) Prince; seven grandchildren, Cain (Casi) Prince, Rachel (Jimmy) Aaron, Zachary Shedd, Hannah Shedd, Madison Prince, Harrison Prince, Ella Shedd, Kristi Horton, and Bradley (Julie) Horton; eight great grandchildren; two sisters, Peggy (Yancy) Barnes and Sandra (Ken) Carter; one brother David Ray (Libba) Smith; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Ed Smith; mother, Maebelle Smith; and sister, Dorothy Clevenger. Her love and caring of others became a life lesson to her family and her memories shall carry with us till we see her again. The family would like to thank St. Vincent’s Home Health and Hope Hospice for their loving care.
