Shirley Ann Landry

Shirley Ann Landry, 78, passed away Thursday, July 18, 2013 at her home in Portland, Texas.
Born to Richard and Mary Seifers in Kokomo, Indiana, Shirley grew up in Noblesville Indiana and graduated from Noblesville High School in 1953. While working after high school she met and married her pen pal, Richard Thomas Landry after his discharge from the Navy on June 23, 1956. They settled in Antioch, California and began raising a family. During the early years of their marriage Shirley stayed very busy working at Wells Fargo Bank full-time, volunteering with the Chamber of Commerce, and raising three children. In 1972 due to a job transfer the family moved to Portland, Texas. Shirley continued to work in the banking industry for a while and then opened her own bookkeeping business. While not working or taking care of her family she enjoyed cooking and playing bridge. Upon retirement Shirley volunteered at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church establishing the Adoration Chapel and teaching in the RCIA program. She is the most beloved "Meme" to her grandchildren and a wonderful example of a giving spirit to her family and friends. After struggling with Alzheimer's she can now rest in peace with her Lord. We love you, Meme! Shirley is survived by her best friend and husband of 57 years, Richard Landry, her three children - Rene Thomas, Christopher Landry and Kelly Gredell and six grandchildren. Our special thanks to Lighthouse Hospice for the wonderful care provided to her during the last part of her illness. In lieu of the customary remembrances, the family gratefully requests that memorial contributions be directed to the Alzheimer's Association in her name. Visitation will be held from 2:00 to 7:00 pm , Monday, July 22, 2013 at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Portland, TX with a rosary to be recited at 7:00pm that same evening.
