Shirley Lee Mefferd

Shirley Lee Mefferd, 70, of Cleveland passed away Friday, March 15, 2019, at her residence surrounded by her loving family.

She was born April 14, 1948, in Ravena, Ohio to Eddie Pucci and Rosa Lee Fuqua. She lived most of her life in the Cleveland area. Mrs. Mefferd was diligent in all of her chores around her lovely home and property and enjoyed being outdoors doing yard work and ordering Virgil around. She loved her family. Nana, as she was affectionately known by her grandchildren, they were her pride and joy and she will be greatly missed by all who loved her. In 1997, she was instrumental in opening up S&H Auto Sales in Liberty with her husband and was the driving force behind it, like any task she took on. She was the first one there and the last one to leave and was a major part of our success. If you ever had the privilege of working with Shirley you found out fast that she was special. She earned her money, worked harder than anybody I ever met and loved her family the same way. Thank you, Lord, we couldn’t have had a better wife, mom, and friend.

Mrs. Mefferd is preceded in death by her parents; son, Jimmy Humansky; her infant, Angel; and sister, Dawn Marie Prince.

Those left to cherish her memory are; her loving husband of 40 years, Virgil Howard Mefferd; sons, Chris J. Mefferd and wife LaNeigh of Rye, TX, and Jeff H Mefferd and wife Laura of Daisette; daughters, Melissa Dawn Souleret of Florida, and Kimberly Gibson of Florida; grandchildren, Angelica, Cheyene, Kristen, Jacob, Chelsea, Steven, Savanaha, Alexis, Christopher, Tyler, Trinity, Blake, and Kaylee, 11 great-grandchildren; and a host of loving family and friends.
