Shirley Lockerby Neathawk

1949 - 2016 NEWFANE, VT - Shirley Lockerby Neathawk, 67, died peacefully at home with family after a brief battle with cancer on Wednesday, August 17, 2016. Shirley was born June 7, 1949, in Bellows Falls, and graduated from Bellows Falls High School in 1967. As a young woman she served in the United States Marine Corps from 1967 to 1971 where she earned a National Defense Service Medal. In 1971 she obtained her cosmetology license and began a long career as a hair stylist including over 30 years as owner and manager of Shear Madness hair salon in Putney. Shirley had many passions. In addition to a busy career, Shirley maintained immaculate sprawling flower gardens at her home. Her love of travel included annual winter trips to Cancun with her girlfriends and regular trips to Georgia to visit beloved relatives. Shirley stayed constantly active, was very social, and always shopping. She loved Christmas and showered family and friends with gifts year round. Somehow there still was time for fishing with her husband, "Willie". Shirley is survived by her husband, William J. Neathawk, two sisters, one brother, many nieces and nephews, and three grandchildren whom she referred to as "her babies". In keeping with Shirley's final wishes, there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Grace Cottage Hospital at P.O. Box 1, Townsend, VT 05353 or Vermont New Hampshire Veterinary Clinic at 38 East-West Road, East Dummerston, VT 05436.
