Sister Shirley, 69 of Pleasent Hope, found her Wings at 10:35 on April 30, 2022.

She married Alton Carpenter in Ft Smith, Arkansas where they owned a grocery/gas station where they fixed flats, did small car repairs and inspected vehicles-they had two children Dan and Robert Carpenter.
Al and Shirley moved to Pleasent Hope, Missouri in 1986. Shirley loved sewing for her family, she crochet hats all year so she had boxes of these hats she would donate each year to the homeless shelters. Shirley was an avid motorcycle rider and loved her T-Bucket.

She leaves behind her two boys, four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Funeral Services are being arranged by the Greenlawn Funeral Home.
