Shirley Locklear Obituary

Mrs. Shirley Temple Locklear, 87, of Shannon, NC was born September 7, 1936, in Robeson County, NC and peacefully departed her life on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy.

    She is preceded in death by her parents James Edward and Louise Locklear, her husband Henry Locklear, a son Sammy Locklear Jr, a granddaughter Wendy Locklear, a great-granddaughter Cheyenne Locklear, four sisters and two brothers.

    She is survived by daughters, Patsy Wilkins of Red Springs, NC; Betty (Charles) Locklear of St. Pauls, NC; Christine Locklear of Rennert, NC; Kathy (Dexter) Locklear of Shannon, NC; Robie Hunt of Shannon, NC; Johanna (Frederick) Locklear of Shannon, NC; and a son Carl Dean (Darlene) Locklear of Shannon, NC; 17 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great grandson, two sisters, one brother, a special friend Normie Godwin, and a host of relatives and friends.

    Mrs. Shirley was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  She will always be remembered for her kindness and generosity. She was a hard worker all her life, including being a homemaker, a farmer, and millworker and loved attending her home church Faith Assembly of God.  She loved spending time working in her garden and creating meals in her kitchen for her family.  She spent her summers shelling peas, baking, and canning goods and she loved feeding others. When you came to visit, you never left empty handed, this was her way of showing her love.  She also spent her whole life raising children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and was very proud of all of them.
