Mrs. Shelby "Shelvie" J. Hedgecock Pierce was at her residence Monday, November 28, 2016 when she went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Shelvie will be laid to rest next to her late husband Danny Pierce on Friday, December 2, 2016 at 11:00 am at Gilmore Memorial Park Cemetery in Julian, NC.
Born in Randolph County, Shelvie was of the Baptist faith and was well versed in the scriptures. After retiring from her Cosmetology career, she worked several years for the Climax Drug Store and later at Pleasant Garden Drug Store. Shelvie was an accomplished hairdresser but, mostly took pride in being a homemaker. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend who was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. Shelvie was wise beyond her years, always offering advice, and never held back speaking exactly what was on her mind. She worked hard to always provide the best she could for her children, enjoyed gardening, and loved to cook and entertain friends and family. Folks were always welcome at her home and no one ever left hungry. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her father, Lester Hubert Hedgecock; a brother, Larry Hedgecock; and a granddaughter, Brandy Price.
Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Deborah Morton, Keith D. Price and his wife Bonnie, Jeanene Wilkerson and her husband Gary, and Bill Price; her mother, Rosa Lee Hedgecock; a sister, Brenda Hedgecock Sells; brothers, Buddy and Jimmy Hedgecock; 12 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and other extended family.
