ISAIAH 57: 1-2 The Righteous Perish, And No One Takes It To Heart. The Devout Are Taken Away, And No One Understands.

That The Righteous Are Taken Away To Be Spared From Evil. Those Who Walk Uprightly Enter Into Peace, They Find Rest As They Lie In Death.

Ms. Shepherd began life as Judy Dell Morrow on August 16, 1952 in Greenville, Texas, born to and preceded in death by James A. Morrow and Emma L. Wyatt.

She graduated from South Grand Prairie High School in 1972 and went on to complete a two-year degree at Mountain View College. She had a life that was a living example of how the world should be. A servant's heart, passionate about the people close to her, compassion toward the need of others. Willing to give forgiveness where deserved and sometimes even if it wasn’t. Being a two time survivor, in 2009 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and once again in 2011. Born in the 1950’s, in the middle of the Korean War, a child during the decade to bring in Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly. The 1960’s heard Bob Dylan and The Beatles as she grew into a teen girl. As 1970 saw the flower power age emerge, she would as well, into a young woman. Giving birth to a son in 1975 and adding a daughter in 1985 took precedent for most of her free time. She adored her dogs. Queenie who passed in 2012, Buddy was there as a companion until the end. During a peaceful moment, she was surrounded by family and friends as she had one last breath.
