Shirley Ann Markham

October 16, 1945 — June 30, 2022


The sun rose and the world welcomed Shirley Ann Baker Markham on October 16, 1945, a day the world became a little brighter. Born to the late Orin Newton Baker and Winifred Lovey Cowell Baker, Shirley, a unique and fancy individual touched the lives of all that knew her. She was also preceded in death by a brother Larry Baker. Shirley attended Molers Beauty School in Memphis and was a beauty therapist and hair stylist for over 40 years. She was the best in the business. She was a fabulous cook and enjoyed fishing, painting and putting a smile on everyones face. “Sam” is on her next great journey.

Survived by: Son John David Markham of Brentwood, TN; Daughter Tracey Cooper of Camden, TN; Sisters Norma Jean Pettyjohn of Camden, TN, Janet (W.C.) Trull of Camden, TN, Rhonda (Jeff) Jordan of Camden, TN; Grandchildren Ashley Cooper, Amy Cooper, Addie Markham, Reese Markham, Cole Markham; Great Granddaughter Amora Willis; Very Special Friend Don Bowman

 In lieu of flowers, we would hope that you would do an unexpected an unsolicited act of kindness in Sams name.
