Shirley Jett of Lubbock passed away on Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at the age of 73. She was born June 20, 1948 in Lubbock to H. W. and Maddie Ruth (Smith) Flowers, Jr. When Shirley moved to Ft. Worth, she worked as a candy packager at King Candy and later as a silk screen printer at Texas Cup. When moving back to Lubbock, she began cleaning homes as she raised the children.

Shirley had a deep-rooted smile that provided comfort and peace to her family in all circumstances. She was a faithful member of Parkway Drive Church of Christ.
