As I sit here this morning mourning the loss of my aunt, Shirley Eudy Davis, many childhood memories come runing back. Memories of spending the night at her home, exploring the woods with my cousins, of her gracious parents, the Eudys, who lived next door, playing with a dog named Trixie, her repairing my hair when I had gotten a bad perm.
Aunt Shirley was a gifted hairdresser and crafter. She was quiet-natured, sweet and thoughtful. She will be greatly missed.
Born November 15, 1937, Shirley Elaine Davis was the only daughter of Horace Vaughn Eudy and Florence Marie Vanhoy. She grew up in Albemarle, or just outside of it.
