Sybil Sheppard

November 21, 2019


Sybil Sheppard, of Newborn, passed away Thursday, November 21, 2019, at 80 years of age. Mrs. Sheppard was a longtime and faithful member of Mountain View Baptist Church in Stone Mountain. She was gifted with a bright mind and an inclination to work hard. Mrs. Sheppard was a member of both the National Honor Society and the Beta Club. She adored her family and was at her best when surrounded by loved ones, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren especially. Given a choice, Mrs. Sheppard's favorite spots to vacation were always near the water, whether it was camping at Lake Oconee and Lake Lanier or putting her toes in the sand at Panama City Beach. She was a passionate fan of the Atlanta Braves, always tuning in to watch them play, and she enjoyed listening to country music - her two favorite groups were Alabama and Moe Bandy.

Left to lovingly remember Mrs. Sheppard is her devoted husband of 62 years, Forrest Sheppard; daughters and sons-in-law, Denise and Keith Worn, Diane and Steve Seals; grandchildren, Travis and Cheralyn Worn, Stephanie and Jeremy Williams, Kayla Vining and fiancé, Logan Henry; great-grandchildren, Kendall Duke, Aubrie Cook, Ashtyn Williams, Alisyn Williams, Avery Worn; brother, Howard Creamer; sister-in-law, Edna Jean Baldwin; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
