Shirley Grace Townsend Narramore, age 87 of Kingston, TN passed away Saturday, June 3, 2023, at Parkwest Hospital. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend to all who met her. Shirley was a ray of sunshine to all she came into contact with. She was a listening ear anytime you needed one. She never wanted anyone to leave her home without taking something with them. She truly loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren more than anything. Her entire world was centered around her family. She received so much joy from their happiness and laughter. She also treasured her time with her sisters and dear friends. Shirley is at home with the Lord where she is in no pain. She has been fully restored and reunited with those that she missed so much. This world will never be the same without her, but Heaven is so much brighter.
