Shirley PaceJune 3, 2017
Shirley McCormack Pace, 80, of Leighton, AL passed away Saturday, June 3, 2017 in Richlands, North Carolina. Visitation will be Thursday, June 8, 2017 from 12-2 p.m. at Blythe United Methodist Church. Mike Weldon will be officiating the service. Burial will be in the Colbert Memorial Gardens. Mrs. Pace traveled many years with her late husband during his time in the U.S. Army making their home in Tuscumbia. She was currently living with her son in North Carolina. She was active in her church, Blythe Memorial United Methodist Church, where she was a lifelong member. Shirley lived right. She loved and laughed and it showed through the love of her family and her church family. She always had that little bit of mischief about her. Everyone that knew her loved her. Her faith never wavered. A spot in our family will forever be empty without her, but we all feel at peace knowing that she is with the Lord.
She is preceded in death by her husband, John Robert Pace; father, Walter A. McCormack; mother, Dollye D. (McCaig) McCormack; brother, David A. McCormack; sisters, Betty Sue McCormack and infant sister.
She is survived by her son, John Robert Pace (Becky); granddaughters, Theresia Carrigan, and Elizabeth Malaro; great granddaughter, Virginia Warder; sisters, Wilma Richey LoTpez and Lucy Smith; many nieces and nephews.
Special thanks to her church family for their continued care throughout the years and to the many family and friends.
