Shirley Clough, born on Dec. 20, 1935, passed on Saturday, March 20, 2021.
Shirley’s final time on earth was spent surrounded by family, singing praises, holding her hand and praying of God’s goodness as a saint is celebrated home.
Shirley dedicated her life to her faith in the saving grace of Christ and her family, and she was a longtime member of Bible Study Fellowship. She believed that in death she entered into the peace of God, which transcends all understanding.
She retired from the San Bernardino County Coroner Department as a chief clerk in accounting.
Shirley was passionate about her family and they adored her. Often, Tuesday’s nights were set aside to break bread, her tacos splashed with ketchup, then the table cleared for rip roaring rounds of her favorite board game “ Murder.” Slander and mayhem mingled with roars of laughter... all in good fun ⎯ all were welcome at her table.
She is fondly remembered and sorely missed by family and friends.
“The separation anxiety is ours, while everlasting peace is hers,” her family stated.
Her loving family includes: daughters, Karen Ledbetter (Rand), Katie Sharp Rose and Donna Sharp; grandchildren Mark Ledbetter (Kelly), Jason Johnson (Lori), Tiffany Hickman (Garrett); and six great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband Ray Clough, her mother Fay (Fox) Martin, her father Rex Parker, her sister JoAn Bakker and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 27, at Immanuel Baptist Church, Chapel Building, 28355 Base Line, Highland.
The family requests that all flowers and notes be sent to Immanuel Baptist Church for the celebration of life.
