Shirley Cleo Brown, age 92, entered into rest on January 27, 2022, at her home in Folsom, Oklahoma, surrounded by her family. She was a loving and devoted daughter to her parents Robert and Ruth (Tince) Krebbs to whom she was born on July 13, 1929, at Folsom. She continued that love in her home with her husband Gene when they were married July 24, 1946. To her four children, she was the “rock” of the family, always loving and supportive. When they were children, she liked to take them roller skating, driving go carts, and to drive-in movies. When her children married, she treated her in laws as her children, also. She was an active grandmother and great grandmother, always ready to go fishing or play games. Her family loved her Sunday dinners with roast beef, mac and cheese and pecan pies. Shirley was a talented seamstress and made many clothes for her daughter including Ann’s wedding dress. She also made other clothes and beautiful quilts for her children and grandchildren. She worked for many years at clothes manufacturing plants in Madill and Durant and achieved the position of assistant manager at the one in Durant before retiring.
