Shirley Warrick

September 19, 1941 — March 17, 2021

Shirley Sanders Warrick, born September 19, 1941 in Glen Cove, NY, passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior on March 17, 2021 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was a graduate of Emory University, Decatur, GA with a Bachelors in Sociology and Education. She was a member of the Phi Mu Sorority where she made lifelong friends. Upon graduation, she took time off to become a wife and mother of 3 until she felt the call to become a nurse (probably because of “the 3”). She graduated from the University of Hawaii with her BSN and worked in a variety of nursing and education programs in Hawaii until moving to Memphis in 1976. She became a school nurse and decided to further her education and enrolled in Memphis State University to pursue a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction Development. Upon completion, she went to work developing curriculum for UTMG Anesthesia Dept. She trained and supervised Anesthesia residents and was instrumental in setting up the “Bunny Room” at LeBonheur to help parents and kids know what to expect before surgery. She also worked at UT Bowld, Old Baptist Hospital and Baptist East where she developed and managed the Doctor Call Center until her retirement. She retired to the country in Brighton, TN where she could collect horses, dogs and cats to her heart’s content. She shared her love of horses and riding by setting up Legacy Farms Horseback Riding Camp for Kids. Shirley leaves behind her loving husband of 58 years, Tom P. Warrick, Sr.; her three children, Tom P. (Janice) Warrick, Jr., Wesley S. Warrick and Melissa G. (Rusty) Morrow; four grandchildren, Chris (Lilly) Warrick, Alanna W. (John) Carrier, Jesse P. Morrow and Shea G. Morrow and three great grandchildren, Emersyn and Luca (Alanna and John) and Noah (Chris and Lilly). She was preceded in death by her parents, Revere G. and Janet H. Sanders and a brother, Roger O. Sanders. Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 3 at the Clopton United Methodist Church where she was a member. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Live-streaming of the service will be available on the Clopton United Methodist Church Facebook Page In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Dogs 2nd Chance or the Tipton County Animal Shelter.
