Shirley Ann was born August 24, 1938 in Fort Worth, the second oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Willis (J-Dub) and Isabell (Punk) O'Donald. She graduated from Silver Creek Texas High School at the age of 15. Shirley was highly intelligent. Her first job was working as a concessionaire at the movie theater on the square in Weatherford, Texas. After moving to Parker County, Shirley eventually went to work at the Base Exchange at Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells and later worked as a transportation officer at the same location. She served in that capacity during the Vietnam War and after. Shirley served in the Civil Service branch for 34 years at many locations and for all branches of the Armed Forces of the United States. By her retirement date in 1993, she had even served as the Transportation Officer at the Pentagon in Washington, DC where the staff wanted her to stay until she retired, but circumstances warranted otherwise. She retired as Transportation Officer for General Dynamics in Fort Worth. Shirley owned a small farm for a time, and raised horses and cattle. She was quite fond of animals, and had a deep love for her family and the many friends she had made over her lifetime. Shirley was a Christian and had re-dedicated her life to Christ recently at the Assembly of God Church in Cool, Texas, where she was an active member. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. Gone but never forgotten. Shirley was preceded in death by her mother, Isabel O'Donald; father, Jesse Willis O'Donald; sister and brother-in-law, Nancy Joyce and John Paul Wright, Jr.; brother and sister-in-law, Jimmy Weldon and Ruby Eloise O'Donald; and great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Johnson. She is survived by her sister, Diane O'Donald; daughter, Star Wilson; son and his wife, Graham and Carol Lynn Compton; grandchildren, Shane Medford Johnson, Chad Jeremiah Johnson, Neil Earnest Rousseau, Patricia Tucker and husband Randy, Tamara Adams, Tonya Kirby, Terry Adams, Joey Adams & Rainy Harbison; great-grandchildren, Joshua Johnson, Shane Johnson, Jr., Caleb Johnson, Ember Johnson, Elizabeth Johnson, Knoxton Rousseau, and Gregory Don Williams; and many, many great great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
