On Dec. 31, 2017, heaven gained a sweet angel we all know as Shirley Jean McCall Hannah. She was born on April 14, 1953 in Mobile to the late Robert Lee and late Betty Pouncey McCall.

She leaves to cherish her memory her only child, Bettye McCall Chapman; son-in-law, Eric Chapman; two grandchildren, Justin and Cody Chapman; brother, John McCall; four sisters, Diann McCall, Mildred Faye McCall, Reseian Carlton Gaither and Katrina Clarke; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins, who all loved her dearly.

To know her was to love her, as evidenced by her long list of loyal friends.

Her home going celebration will be Saturday, Jan. 6 at 11 a.m. at the New Greater First Baptist Church, located at 236 Nicol Ave. in Thomasville.

In God's arms, she rests. In our hearts, she lives forever.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
