I am beyond sad to learn this! Aunt Earlene was a second mother to me growing up! I have lovely memories of her kindness and her beautiful voice. She loved her country music! I will miss hearing updates at Christmas time and just knowing she's not around to take care of her family whom she adored is heartbreaking! Uncle Earl, Trina, Shelley, Earl, Marty and all the grandkids...I'm so sorry for our loss! Love you all!
My Granny was the best! I remember when I was younger she would always make me warm chocolate milk in the morning and give me a bowl of pickels. She would always take care of me, my Papa, and my dad. She always welcomed anyone who came in her door and offer them a nice glass of ice tee. I will misss all the memories of my Granny!
Earlene was always made sure my connection to the family was for ever!!!! I still to this day call her my mother n law and not EX daughter n law. I will always remember her sweet face when dropping or picking up Sadie Girl for her visits. Althought they were few and far between since Sadie started highschool, we managed to keep our famiky together. Losing Earlene was tragic and a terrible loss to our community. She touched many people over the years with her southern hospitality.
Love you always Earlene and rest in peace without anymore worries.....
Aunt Earlene was a wonderful Aunt. I have only good memories of her and Uncle Earl. With our family being so close, I remember them at not only the Shrum Family Reunion, but at the Tipton/Maple Family Reunion. Aunt Earlene had a great singing voice and I loved when we all got together and sang. I especially liked when I was younger and they would bring out the guitars. I will miss her, but I am sure my Mom was right at the gates of heaven giving her big smile and hug. Aunt Jeweldine, Granny and Grandpa were also waiting. I am sure Uncle Wayne had a grin waiting for her too. Love you Aunt Earlene. Cindy Gayle
