At a young age, she found the love of her life and married Mack Lane on August 11th, 1961. They then made their home in Davis Shore having two daughters. She became a beautician and then would work for JM Davis industries for over 30 years.</p> <p>After Mack&rsquo;s sudden passing, Shirley found love again with Jack Dunaway. That&rsquo;s where Shirley began her love for Core Banks. They spent many hours over to the banks staying in the camper, riding 4 wheelers and fishing.</p> <p>Shirley loved to travel and would have her bags packed and ready for the next adventure. Her travels would take her all around our country.</p> <p>She would never turn down a pot of onions with some dumplings or steamed crab legs and a cold Pepsi.</p> <p>Shirley also loved spending time with her family, especially her great grandchildren. They were her pride and joy.</p> <p>Life threw many battles in Shirley&rsquo;s life, but she&rsquo;d always beat the odds and came out a stronger woman. The one battle she fought hard to fight was cancer. In the end cancer won but Shirley is the ultimate winner walking along the streets of gold with our Lord.</p> <p>Shirley is survived by her two daughters, Annette Goodwin and husband George Lonnie, and Tammy Davis and husband Bobby; sister, Frances Waters and husband Ronald; her favorite granddaughter, Loni Marie Doshier and husband Brandon; grandsons, Corey Goodwin and wife Amanda, Jonathan Davis and girlfriend Miranda Goodwin; great-grandchildren, Mack Doshier, Lindsay Sassano, Easton Goodwin, Benjamin Goodwin, Charlotte Goodwin, Aubrey Davis and Grayden Davis; special niece, Brenda Willis; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.</p> <p>Shirley was proceed in death by her husband, Mack Lane Davis; significant other, Jack Dunaway; mother, Lillian Barbour; father, Rudolph Mitchell; step-father, Talbert Barbour; brothers, Thomas Mitchell, Sam Mitchell and Jimmy Mitchell; sisters-in-law, Colleen Harvey and Rosa Mae Davis; brother-in-law, Duane Harvey; niece, Theresa Faircloth; and nephew, Randy Waters.</p> <p><strong>Family will receive friends from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Monday, September 7, 2020, at Davis Free Will Baptist Church.
