When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

The moment has come when the Horton Family must pause and inform all that Mrs. Shirley Temple Greene no longer resides on this side of the Jordan River. On Sunday, July 19, 2020 that Glorious ship of Zion left the dock at her residence and Mrs. Shirley got on board and was bound for Paradise.

On Friday July 24, 2020 between the hours of 6pm and 8pm Mrs. Shirley will lie in peaceful repose for those who wish to spend moments with her and the family for viewing and visitation at Horton Funeral Home and Cremations. The “Dash” between Mrs. Shirley year of birth and year of leaving this world will be honored on Saturday July 25, 2020 at 11am in the Chapel of Hortons Funeral Home and Cremations with Rev. John R. Shannon officiating. She was so much to so many and it will be difficult with her no longer being with us on this side but as the songwriter reminds us “May the work she did speak for her”

The Compassionate Professionals of Horton’s Funeral Homes and Cremations are walking hand in hand with the heartbroken Greene/ Combs and connected families during this time.
