Obituary for Wilma June Shackelford

Wilma June Shackelford met her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the morning of August 12, 2019, in Kemp, Texas. She was born on June 4, 1932 to Granville and Linnie Cullers Helvey in Levelland, Texas. She grew up on farms in Levelland and Mineral Wells.
While lovingly managing her busy family in Midland, June worked many years as the manager of a ladies ready to wear store and in banking. She was a Godly woman, a true Proverbs 31 woman. She loved the Lord and showed his love through her actions, being a faithful member of Fellowship Baptist Church of Athens. She loved to play songs of her faith on the piano while her children gathered around to sing. Setting a good example as a loving mother was her greatest joy. June served in several offices in the General Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, Athens Chapter 177.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Ralf Helvey; her sister, Pauline Gibbs Klaus; and her grandson, Larry Wayne McCampbell.
Survivors include her husband of 41 years, Casey Eugene Shackelford; her children, Nina Lassiter and husband Dan, Iris Folger and husband Mike, Dennis McCampbell and wife Pam, Lanetta Cooper and husband Paul; grandchildren, Matt Lassiter, Jamie Wondolowski, Kelsey Folger, Laura Alberts, Kendra Coleman, Kari Hair, Kyle Cooper; and 12 great-grandchildren. June was excited about the upcoming arrival of her 13th great-grandchild!
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, August 16, 2019 at Fellowship Baptist Church in Athens. Burial will follow at Zion Hill Cemetery. Arrangements by Autry’s Carroll-Lehr Funeral Home.
