CARY PLANTATION – Shirley Mae Severance Jedrey, 79, died Feb. 7, 2008, at a local hospital, with family and fri-ends nearby. She was born Oct. 29, 1928, in Harveral, Mass., the daughter of Roland L. and Dorothy (Burnham) Severance. Shirley was a caring, loving person, who was always making people feel welcome. She loved spending time with family and friends, enjoyed knitting, making quilts and going antiquing with her husband, Ralph. Shirley was very proud of the fact that she had stopped smoking after 60 years so that she could be baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and loved talking to people about God’s Kingdom and the time when Jehovah God will wipe away all tears and death and sorrow that will be replaced with the hope of the resurrection that Jesus promised. Revelation 21:3,4.
