Obituary for Shirley Warfield

Smithfield

Shirley Alcock Warfield, born November 29, 1935 passed away on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, at the age of 81. She was an active member of Christ Episcopal Church in Smithfield and a member of the Smithfield Woman's Club.

Shirley was the daughter of Evelyn Meyerhoffer and Edward Odell Alcock. She grew up in Hampton, remaining close to many of her high school friends. After graduating from Hampton High School, she went to Longwood College, where she was a member of Pi Kappa Sigma Sorority and was honored to represent the College as an "Apple Blossom Princess" at the 1958 Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, VA. While at Longwood, she met her husband-to-be, "Whitey". She graduated in June 1958 and she and Whitey married immediately, beginning their life together. With her family, she lived in many places all over the country. Shirley loved being a teacher, counselor, and mentor to people of all ages. Her favorite teaching position was at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, where she taught English, History, and was Senior Class Sponsor and Guidance Counselor. She was the first member of the "Teachers' Hall of Fame" at Lausanne.

Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, Evelyn and Edward Alcock, and by her son, Calvin N. Warfield, III. She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband Calvin N. Warfield, Jr., her son, Edward Tyler Warfield (Gwynneth), daughter, Elizabeth Warfield Kohl (David), six grandsons and a brother, Fred Lee Alcock (Becky).

A service celebrating Shirley’s life will be held 11am, Friday, February 10 at Christ Episcopal Church with the Rev. Connie W. Gilman officiating. A reception will follow after the service in the parish hall.

The family request that donations be made in her memory to Christ Episcopal Church, 111 S. Church Street, Smithfield, VA 23430.
