Shirley Margaret Sullivan

May 2, 1935 — May 6, 2024

Prince George County

Shirley Margaret Sullivan, 89, of Prince George County, Virginia, passed away on Monday, May 6, 2024. Born in Prince George County on May 2, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Maybelle Estelle Ray Wall and Robert James Wall. She was also preceded in death by her beloved husband, Robert Lee Sullivan, whom she married on November 21, 1956. She had one sibling, Carlton Wall. Her oldest daughter, Darlene Sullivan Florence, sadly passed away in 2020.

She is survived by her loving family: daughter, Sheila Sullivan Casey; son-in-law, David Casey; son-in-law, Anthony Florence; her grandchildren, Kristin Piatt Lasher and her husband, Christopher Lasher, Christopher Piatt, Jason Coleman, David Casey, and Kenneth Florence and his wife, Taylor Florence; and her great-grandchildren, Annabelle Coleman, Dominick Coleman, Kaylyn Lasher, Logan lasher, Khloe lasher, Gianna Florence, Kayden Florence, and Anthony Florence.

Shirley grew up on her family’s farm in Disputanta, Prince George County, Virginia. She attended school in Carson Virginia, and was named Miss Carson. She worked as management in the grocery industry until her retirement, and was a loving and caring homemaker until her passing. She had many hobbies, including hand painting ceramics, scrap booking, and her favorite hobby of both her and her daughters, shopping! She was well known in the community for her compassion, acceptance, kindness, and generosity to everyone she met. She extended the upmost courtesy and kindness to all, and was a beloved figure by not only her children’s friends, but her grandchildren‘s friends and neighbors in the community. She served as a pillar of strength and grace for her entire family, and was the glue that held everyone together in times of trouble or sadness. Her entire family affectionately referred to her as “Grannie”. She loved it, but the name of Grannie could never encompass how wonderful of a human being she was to this world. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. 

 A graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, May 13, 2024, in Southlawn Memorial Park’s Mausoleum, 1911 Birdsong Road, S. Prince George, Virginia, 23805. Arrangements are by the Crater Road Chapel of the E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes, 3935 S. Crater Road, Petersburg, Virginia 23805.
