Shirley Lawson Choplin, 73, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Mrs. Choplin was a loving, devoted, prayer warrior, wife, mother and memaw to all of her family. They were her greatest worldly treasure.

She retired from Revco/CVS as a pharmacy technician. She enjoyed getting to know her customers so much and also sharing God’s Word with them and her co-workers.
