August 18, 1934 — January 21, 2020

Shirley Mae Vandiver, 85, of Double Springs entered into rest on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at her residence surrounded by her loving family. She was born August 18, 1934. She was a member of Trinity Assembly of God Church in Okeechobee, Florida for approximately 18 years and served as Sunday School teacher, was involved in Women’s Ministry, sang in the choir, and she and her husband were missionaries to the Seminole Indians on the reservation. Upon moving to Double Springs, Alabama, she was a member of Mount Olive Baptist Church and New Beginnings in Christ in Double Springs, where she was a deacon’s wife. She enjoyed working in her flower gardens, trips to the beach, feeding and watching birds and singing hymns, but her favorite was reading her Bible and worshipping the Lord. She loved joking around with people and making them happy.
