Shirley Ann Neill, 62, Stinesville
Shirley Ann Neill, 62, Stinesville, passed away at I.U. Health Bloomington Hospital on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013.

Shirley was born in Bloomington Nov. 27, 1950, to the late William and Eleanor (Foley) Cantrell. On Nov. 27, 1975, she married the love of her life, Terry Neill. Shirley was known to her family as the “Domestic Goddess.” Mom, You will be forever missed. You left your own lasting mark on our lives that can never be erased by time or distance. Your qualities and love sent ripples through the lives of so many. Our mom, always looking for artistic expression whether through intricate drawings, extravagant floral arrangements, or her ability to capture time in her scrap books. A generous heart searching for ways to bless others with whatever she could. Whoever came into her life she stamped her seal on their hearts, one that will stand to time indefinite. We love you, Mom, with every fiber and breath of our being. We keep our eyes on the future when you and all of us will “return to the days of his youthful vigor.” - Job 33:25.

She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Pammy Sue, Billy, Sandy, and Judy.

Shirley is survived by her husband, Terry Neill of Stinesville; children, Tabatha Poore (Auston) of Brown County, Melissa Richardson (Bryan) of Martinsville, Fred Jackson of Stinesville, Jonathan Neill of Bloomington, Gary Neill (Marisol) of the Dominican Republic and Charles Neill and fiancee Audri of Newburgh; nine grandchildren; a great-grandchild; siblings, Brenda Akers, Dee Gesseman, Toby Cantrell, Angel Scroggins, and Brett Cantrell; and several nieces and nephews.

 

Funeral services were to be conducted at 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, at Chandler Funeral Home. Burial was to follow at Chambersville Cemetery. Visitation was at the funeral home Sept. 29.
