Shirley Sue Pyles, 84 of Nortonville passed away Sunday, July 19, 2020, at Jennie Stuart Medical Center. Born March 17, 1936, to the late Jack and Opal (Hight) Grace. She was a member of The River for several decades, but Ms. Shirley would spread the story of God’s love everywhere she went. She was the owner/operator of the Nortonville Beauty Shop for 30 years before retiring. Ms. Shirley loved to sing. What she might’ve lacked in musical talent, she made up for in enthusiasm & would lift anyone’s spirits whenever she was around. Always full of spunk, Ms. Shirley was never without something witty and/or wise to say. Truly one-of-a-kind, she will be greatly missed by anyone who was lucky enough to have known her.
Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 58 years, J.D. Pyles; and brother, Clifford Grace.
Survived by her children, Denise (Dale) Seay of Crofton and David (Dana) Pyles of The Villages, FL.; 3 grandchildren, Elizabeth (Jesse) Riggle, Jordan (Dalas) Pyles and Nicki (Travis) Taylor; 7 great-grandchildren, Tenley, Chandler and Tripp Riggle, Brileigh, Harrison and Hudson Pyles, and Wyatt Taylor; sisters, Kathryn Barnett of Hopkinsville, Chris (Wayne) Billingsley of Indiana and Cella (Abel) King of Indiana; and several nieces and nephews.
