Weatherford, TX

WEATHERFORD - Shirley Anne Tedford, who departed this life on February 14, 2024, at the age of 85, surrounded by family, due to complications from a stroke. Visitation: 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Thursday, February 22, 2024 at Greenwood Funeral Home in Memorial Suite B, 3344 White Settlement Rd, Fort Worth, Texas 76107, followed by a graveside service at 1:00 p.m. in Greenwood Memorial Park. Born on April 5, 1938, in Dallas Texas, to Jerome Davis (J.D.) Reynolds and Mildred Reynolds, whom she loved dearly. Shirley came from large families and multiple generations of Texans, growing up in the Dallas area. Shirley attended Irving High School where she first met her life-long sweetheart Jerry Mann Tedford. Shirley and Jerry married in 1955 in Irving, following her early graduation, and remained happily married for 68 years. They started their family soon after, in 1957. Eventually moving to Bedford, Texas in 1964 to raise their family. In 1996, after retirement, they moved to Weatherford, Texas where they remained. Shirley was a dedicated wife, mother, grand-mother, great grand-mother, and friend. Her love knew no bounds, touching the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her smile and her laugh were infectious. She was tireless in nurturing and supporting her loved ones, creating a happy home rich in love and kindness. She was a person of quiet, patient and tolerant faith, and ensured that her family understood the importance of faith in her life and in theirs. Hate was a word she forbid her children from using. For those that knew her well, it is fitting that the Lord called her home on the holiday celebrating love and Ash Wednesday. She loved gardening, wildflowers, and making things grow. She loved feeding her birds, who's species she could name on sight. She was a voracious reader, and could talk widely about history, people, places and scripture. She was a great cook, famous for many of her recipes. But, her best role, and the one she cherished most, was Mom and Mema. At this, she was the very best. Shirley is preceded in death by a grandson, Luke Tedford. She is survived by her husband, Jerry Tedford; and her four children and their spouses, Mark Tedford (Teena), Kirk Tedford (Lynn), Julie (Tedford) Henderson (Mark), and Gina (Tedford) McDonald (Trace); and by her six grandchildren, Megan Tedford, Zachary Henderson, Sara (Tedford) Gallivan, Grant Tedford, Haley (Henderson) Milam and Jake MeDonald. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren; Tripp Henderson, June Milam, Trooper Henderson, Brooks Tedford and Ford Milam. Mom's last words were "happy". She wanted us to know she was happy. We have no doubt that Mom will find eternal peace and happiness. And her memory will continue to guide us all as we aspire to live to her loving example. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cook's Children's Hospital.
