Southern Shores - On February 19, 2018 the world lost a
lovely lady, as Shirley Venente went to be with the Lord. Shirley was born and raised in the Washington
D.C. metro area. She worked as a Legal Aide in patents and trademarks.
When she retired she moved to the Outer Banks and has loved
her life here. Shirley loved
volunteering her time to the island. She helped many people navigate the
complexities of Medicare. She assisted at Hotline helping their shops to raise
money for their shelters. One of her great prides was being Queen of her Red
Hatters ladies club. She loved her community garden and everyone that
participated there. For over 20 years she has served the Outer Banks and will
be sorely missed.
She leaves behind two daughters, two grandsons, a great
grandson, a sister, and two brothers. We will all miss this lady with a
beautiful heart and soul.
A memorial gathering will be held 2-4pm, Thursday, February 22, 2018 at the Gallop Funeral Chapel in Nags Head.
Condolences to the family may be expressed via the on-line
register at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. Nags
Head was entrusted with arrangements.
