Shirley Kathleen Lang

Ms. Shirley Kathleen Lang, age 64, of Kingsland, Ga. passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 16th, 2019 at Hospice of the Golden Isles in Brunswick, Ga.

Ms. Lang was born on December 28th, 1954 in Jacksonville, Fl.  She was the daughter of the late Agnes Rodgers Gainey and Eldon Woolard, Sr.

She was a part of a huge blended family of seven children which included six girls and one boy.  Kathy was an avid lover of animals, especially her beloved dog, Lillie and was beyond proud of her lovely flower garden. But her pride and joy were her three beautiful granddaughters, which she never missed an opportunity to brag on. They were her angels! She enjoyed a good meal at Sonny’s or St. Marys Steak and Seafood, but mainly liked good homemade cooking from “mom’s”. She also liked taking lots of pictures and listening to music and tv. Ms. Lang will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Ms. Lang is survived by her son, Jameson Duane Shirley of Silverhill, Al.; her father, Eldon, Sr. and “mom”, Jane G. Woolard; her siblings, Agnes Elaine Woolard and Lynn (Kevin) Lentz all of St. Marys, Ga., Amy Brown of Nc., Melissa (Vaughn) Rowland and Eldon (Deborah) Woolard, Jr., all of Brunswick, Ga., and Nancy (Brian) Harrell of Merritt Island, Fl.; her grandchildren, Veronica Lenee (John) Webster of Jacksonville, Nc., Alexandria Faith Shirley, and Cerra Monette Shirley of Al.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in passing by her mother, Agnes Rodgers Gainey and her daughter-in-law, Lisa Shirley.

A graveside service for Ms. Lang will be at 10 am Tuesday, June 18th, 2019 in Lawnwood Cemetery in Kingsland, Ga.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made in Ms. Lang’s name to the Hospice of the Golden Isles, ,or the Humane Society, or to PO Box 1270 Kingsland, Ga. 31548.

From her family, “We love you Kathy, forever and always and to the moon and back! Until we all meet again, rest in peace!”

    Kathy will sure be missed at Hilltop Terrace. I was her next door neighbor in S3 while I was on the wait list for V3 (2 bedroom to house a resident caregiver in the 2nd bedroom) for 1 1/2 years. Kathy was an awesome neighbor and friend. I am praying for God to comfort her family. It just seemed to happen so fast between her diagnosis to the end. I just can’t stop being sad right now although I know she especially is in a better place than we are now and is no longer suffering. I just miss her. I’m so very sorry for your loss!
