On Saturday, March 28, 2020, heaven gained a beautiful angel, Shirley Baldwin Shores, 73 of Cartersville, VA. Shirley was born on July 31, 1946, to the late Charlie J. Baldwin Jr and Minnie Marion Baldwin.

She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Shirley cared for many children in her home daily, providing a loving place for children to play and develop life-long friendships.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years, James Linwood Shores, Sr and four children; two daughters, Teresa Shores Ingle (Paul) of Cumberland and Cindy Shores (Steve) of Chesterfield; two sons, James Linwood Shores Jr. (Shelby) of Powhatan and Rodney Earl Shores (Amy) of Chesterfield; four sisters; Jean Sledge, Minnie Moorefield, Sally Stinson and Connie Garrett, one brother Frankie Baldwin.
