Shirley Jo Chasteen, 73, passed away at home on December 20, 2021. She was born on March 28, 1948, in Mesquite, Texas, to parents James Melvin and Dorothy Merle Bradshaw.
Shirley married Tommy Ray Chasteen on December 31, 1965, and together they had three children: Delissa Kay, Tommy Ray, Jr., and Angelica Denice.

At times, she worked outside the home as a seamstress, cook, and nutritional administrator for DISD. She enjoyed gardening, canning, sewing, cooking, singing praise and worship, but most of all, spending time with family and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 50 years, Tommy Ray Chasteen, Sr., sister Wanda Marsh, and brother Michael Bradshaw.
