Shirley Lunsford

Mrs. Shirley Lunsford, age 78, of Dubach, passed away Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at Northern La. Medical Center, surrounded by her family. Love is not an adequate word to describe the feelings that each of her family members have for her. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and a real blessing to anyone fortunate enough cross paths with her. The manner in which she lived her life did not warrant media attention, but every day, she was “Queen for a Day” to her family.
