Sylvia Jane Shepherd (Jane) went home to rest with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on August 20, 2019 in Round Rock, Texas after her battle with dementia.

Born March 7, 1940 in Atlanta, Texas, she was the middle child of three children to Barney and Agnes Combs. Jane is preceded in death by her parents and sister Geri. Throughout her life, Jane worked as an Office Manager and Administrator for The Williamson County Appraisal District in Georgetown, Texas. She was known for her joyful presence, treating everyone with respect, and provided attention to detail and tenacity in the workplace. Friends, family, church and traveling are what she enjoyed the most. In her last days at University Village Memory Care Facility in Round Rock, staff members reported how she was a blessing to them, even in her difficult days and struggles. In many ways, she continued to exude her childlike spirit to the very end.

Jane is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Walter Shepherd of Jarrell, Texas; brother, James Combs of San Antonio, Texas; three sons, Steve Shepherd, of Crawford, Texas and his wife Annette, Scott Shepherd of Waxahachie, Texas and his wife Donna, and Michael Shepherd of Jarrell, Texas and his wife Amanda; grandchildren, Alan, Andrew (Tori), Stephanie (Mateo), Cody, Kyle, Claire, Clayton, Tyler, Samuel; and six great grandchildren. Visitation will be held at Cook-Walden Davis Funeral Home in Georgetown, Texas on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. A Celebration of Life service will take place on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at Georgetown Church of the Nazarene in Georgetown, Texas.

Memorial donations can be given to: Alzheimer’s Association.

The Family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to all those who have cared for Jane during her battle and supported them during this time of loss.

We were sadden to hear of Jane's illness and passing. She was such a great lady who I have many fond memories of from WCAD. She was very ethical and ran her business well. WCAD was a better place for her time there, as was this world. Jane will be missed by many of us. Our prayers are with her family.
