Shirley Ann Olive

Shirley Ann Olive, age 76, of Greenhill, AL passed away Monday, February 20, 2017 at Lauderdale Christian Nursing Home.

She was born on of nine children in Wayne County, TN to Hershel & Corene Olive. She was stricken with polio at the young age of 10. Doctors gave no hope that she would ever walk or talk again, and told the family that she would not live more than two years. Although her mind remained forever a little girl and her body sustained partial paralysis, she defied all odds. Thanks to much prayer and the nurturing and determination of her mother, Grandmother, and aunts, Shirley was fitted with leg braces two years later and taught to walk and talk.

She remained very active throughout her life. She was best friend and playmate to her sisters, brothers, 28 nieces and nephews, and numerous great nieces and nephews. She loved outdoors, flowers, gardening, and apples. Her favorite things were make-up, fingernail polish and jewelry, especially beads.

She was a 21 year resident of Lauderdale Christian Nursing Home where she remained active. A huge thank you to all of the staff at Lauderdale Christian and especially to some special friends (you know how you are) for all that you have done to give her such a fulfilling life.

She was preceded in death by her parents: Herschel Sr. & Corene Olive; brother and sister-in-law Herschel Jr. and Betty Olive; sister and brother-in-law Jack & Francis Stutts; and sister Glenda Olive.

She is survived by her sister: Brenda (Terry) Holden; and brothers: Richard (Tena) Olive, Jessie (Nancy) Olive, Robert (Jeri) Olive, and Danny (Bonnie) Olive.

Visitation will be Wednesday, February 22, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Greenhill Funeral Home. The funeral service will follow at 1:00 p.m. with Bro. Mike Nabors officiating. Burial will be in Railroad Cemetery.
