Obituary of Suzanne Kathrynn Shelton

Mrs. Suzanne Kathrynn Shelton, age 77 of Fort Payne, passed away Wednesday, January 8, 2020. Cremation services entrusted to W.T. Wilson Funeral Chapel. A mother, a grandmother, an aunt and a great-grandmother to many, but also a woman full of wisdom, of strength and of love to all who knew her. She was educated to be a teacher in her early years and went on to influence many young hearts and minds to chase their dreams and live their passion. Her own passions in life were boundless as evidenced by the joyful memories of her love for painting, watching hummingbirds, caring for her dogs, travels to the mountains and the beach, music, gardening and most importantly her grand and great-grandchildren. Though she was always known for not being the traditional grandma that would bake pies and cookies, she is remembered for the countless tidbits of love and wisdom that she left with everyone she met. Though she never had a chance to fulfill her own dream travels while on this earth, her love of taking care of others always brought her joy and happiness. Today, we remember Suzanne Kathrynn Shelton with the words of this poem that beautifully illustrate her endless spirit to all she loved and we take comfort in knowing that she is walking hand in hand in heaven with her mother, Effie L. Chamberlin. Mom You were there When tears fell from our eyes You were there to brush them away When we were lost in confusion You were there to say everything will be ok When we stood before you falling apart You were there to lend your heart When we felt that no one would understand You were there to take our hand When no one else was left to care You were there *Survivors* Children: Angela Shelton, Lynn and Tony Furgerson, Bobby and Michelle Shelton, Chris Shelton, and Craig and Felicia Shelton Grandchildren: Riley Fink, Maya Fink, Tyler Furgerson, Stephen Shelton, Christina Shelton, Seth Shelton, Brendan Shelton, Stephanie Shelton, Trent Shelton Great Grandchild: Harper Davis Nieces and Nephews: Ann and Ron Fox Great Nieces and Nephews: Bethany Fox Great, Phillip Fox **Mrs. Shelton was preceded in death by her husband: Billy Joe Shelton; brother: Phil Chamberlin; nephew: Brad Chamberlin**
