Shirley Drew Sullivan

Shirley Drew Sullivan, beloved by family, passed away on Oct. 15, 2018. Originally from Raymond, N.H., she was a resident of Castleberry, Ala. for the past many decades. Many remember her from Sullivan’s Grocery & Market in downtown Castleberry. Others remember the warm welcome they received at her home and table, all the neighborhood kids were regulars at her house. After attending Troy University, she served the community in various positions at Saint Margaret’s Hospital, became a certified Emergency Medical Technician, and worked for several years at the Radio Shack in Brewton, Ala.
She leaves this earth to join her husband, Milton Carr Sullivan; her parents, Florence Evelyn Clark Drew Brown and John Irving Drew; her step-father Glenn Francis Brown; her brother Floyd Irving Drew; and her infant sister Lois Drew.
