Shirley Ann (Matthews) Beck

March 26, 1935 ~ January 5, 2022 (age 86)


Shirley Matthews Beck passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday January 5, 2022.

Born in Sampson County, she is the daughter of the late Garthie and Margaret Maxwell Matthews. She was also preceded in death by a daughter, Sarah; and a sister, Delores.

Left to cherish her memory are daughters Edith (Eddie) Tyler, Diane McGeachy; son David (Rose) Creech; grandchildren, Matthew (Laura), Brandi (Thomas), Carrie (Elisha), Kali, Anthony and David Ray; great grandchildren, Tiffany, Zachary, Jaylin, Bailey, Sytabitha, Zakarria, Jordan, Haley, Ana and  "her boy" David Allen; great great grandchildren, Nathaniel, Jamar and Carson; brother Jimmy; sisters, Patsy and Sylvia; many nieces & nephews.

She worked many years at Western Publishing prior to their closing.  After she went on to work at Breezewood Child Care, where she quickly became grandma to many children.  In her later years she worked for the Cumberland County Sherriff's Office as a traffic control officer, that job was the highlight of her working career.

Shirley spent over 25 years making memories with her best friend Flora Lee, making many Walmart trips and eating weekly at Rainbow Restaurant.  After all those years together, they are now reunited.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Joyce Dunlap and Marie Suggs for always being there when the family couldn't be.
