Shirley Faye Mattingly, 83, of Jacksonville gained her wings on Monday, August 5 while surrounded by those she loved. Shirley was one of thirteen children born in Pope County, North Carolina to parents John Walter McIntyre and Bertha Lidey McIntyre. She is preceded in death by her parents and 11 of her brothers and sisters and her husband, Monnin J. Mattingly. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Rebecca Rivera of Virginia Beach, VA and William J. Mattingly (Kim) of Lawton, OK; step-son Bobby Mattingly (Bonnie) of KY; step-daughter, Linda S. Temberlake of KY; Grandchildren Matthew Gray, Brittany Nicole Mattingly, Cody William Mattingly, Courtney Rose Mattingly, Jacob Monnin Mattingly, Gabriella Marcellina Rivera, Marco Antonio Rivera; great granddaughter, Briann Gray; her companion of many years, Bennie Smith and her sole surviving sister, Jessie Mae Green of Daytona Beach, FL.

Shirley was a wonderful stay-at-home Mom who lived at the ballfield with her kids, always encouraging and cheering them on. She was so out-going & always ready to laugh. She loved to garden, travel, hit Oaklawn and the Casinos and dining out. Shirley loved the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes and was convinced she would eventually win! A wonderful cook, her specialty was her fabulous fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. Shirley was always full of life and loved living it.

A funeral service celebrating her life will be held at 10:00 am, Monday, August 12th at Griffin Leggett Rest Hills, 7724 Landers Rd. in North Little Rock. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Please share your memories of Shirley with her family at
