Obituary for Shirley (Kester) Reynolds

Shirley Ann (Kester) Reynolds, of Pampa, Texas, a loving mother, a doting grandmother and a faithful solider for Christ, passed away Sunday, January 7, 2018, at her home with a Bible in her hands.

Shirley was born June 10, 1941, in Oklahoma City to Willie Andrew and Sarah Mildred Kester. She was the middle child to 18 children; and grew up in Wellington, Texas, with flaming red hair and generally a cotton sack in her hand. She often said her favorite part of her childhood was singing with her sisters, going to town on Saturday nights, and making frequent trips to Stillwell, Oklahoma, to pick strawberries.
She married George Wesley (G.W.) Reynolds on August 30, 1959. They lived in Vinson, Oklahoma, where GW farmed cotton and finally settled in the Eva, Oklahoma, area where they raised their family. Later in life, Shirley lived in Oklahoma City, Duncan, Oklahoma and finally Pampa, Texas. She was a devoted wife and mother with one son and three daughters.

Shirley was saved when she was nine years old at an old time revival meeting and throughout her life was an active member of every church she attended. Shirley was a fervent prayer warrior and her main concern was that every family member, friend and acquaintance knew Jesus as their Savior. Shirley was known to constantly leave a trail of “salvation tracts” everywhere she went.

She was preceded in death by her husband G.W. Reynolds, her parents, and 11 siblings.

Left to honor Shirley and remember her love are her children: George (Butch) Reynolds and wife Kenda of Perryton, Texas, Sheresa Patrick and husband Mike of Duncan, Oklahoma, Robin Gibson and husband Travis of Ennis, Texas and Shawna Hudson and husband Philip of Spearman, Texas, 21 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, five sisters, one brother, and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral service will be Friday, January 12, 2018, at 2:00 PM at the First Baptist Church in Elkhart, Kansas. Interment will follow at the Elkhart Cemetery. Friends may call Thursday, January 11, 2018, from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM, with family present, at the First Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to World Missions Bearing Precious Seed in care of Garnand Funeral Home, PO Box 854, Elkhart, KS 67950.
