Shirley Jo (Stabler) Boutwell was born on October 21, 1936. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. Her selflessness and devotion to her family and friends was a reflection of her love for Jesus, whom she spent her whole life serving. She always saw the good in people and worked to bring forth their potential, particularly with the students that she so lovingly taught. Until the moment she could go no more, she was servant and a prayer warrior.
