The SCHS Class of 1971 would like to express their condolences to classmate Nancy Shearon Coker in the passing of her mother Helen Grace Shearon


Helen Grace Dark Shearon 
(December 21, 1919 - March 8, 2018)


Grace Shearon

Helen Grace Dark Shearon, 98, formerly of Shelbyville, passed quietly into the arms of Jesus on Thursady, March 8, 2018, at the Arbors at Willow Springs in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

Visitation will be held from 11:00 a.m. until service time, 1;00 p.m. Saturday, March 10, 2018, in the chapel of Doak-Howell Funeral Home with Jeff Smith officiating. Burial will be in the Bethlehem Cemetery in Marshall County.

She was a faithful Christian and a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was blessed with a gift of hospitality and homemaking. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed sewing, gardening and quilt-making.

Mrs. Shearon was a daughter of the late Martha Ura Tankersley and Dave Dark. She was born on December 21, 1919, “on the high side of the Duck River,” as she would say, in the Hardison’s Mill community, in Marshall County, Tennessee. When her father died in 1932, Mrs. Shearon helped her mother manage their household and care for her younger brothers and sisters.

She married Richard Houston Shearon on September 8, 1939. In 1941, they moved to the Richmond community in Bedford County, where they lived until her husband’s death in 1997. She moved to Shelbyville later that year and to Spring Hill in 2014.

As a young woman, she became a member of the Old Lasea Church of Christ in Pottsville, Tennessee. After her marriage, she became a member of the Lone Oak Church of Christ in Richmond, where her husband was an elder and song leader. She later became a member of the Fairlane Church of Christ in Shelbyville.

She began working at Fly Manufacturing in Shelbyville in 1959 and was an exemplary employee there for more than 20 years.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Arbors at Willow Springs for the loving and attentive care they provided Mrs. Shearon for the past four years.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she is preceded in death by two sons, David Landis Shearon, of Jacksonville, Florida, and James Edward Shearon of Atlanta; two brothers, Hume Dark, of Nashville, and Ralph Dark of Tullahoma, Tennessee; four sisters, Mary Payne Dark Smith of Tullahoma, Tennessee, Annie Lou Dark Beliew of Memphis, Mildred Dark Walker of Nashville, and Sara Dark of Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Mrs. Shearon is survived by two brothers, Foy Dark of Melbourne, Florida, and Frank Dark of Huntsville, Alabama; two daughters and sons-in-law, Lynn Shearon and John Mott and Nancy Shearon and Larry Coker all of the Richmond community; two sons and daughters-in-law, Jack and Linda Shearon of Elkmont, Alabama, and Jerry and Kathy Shearon of Shelbyville; one daughter-in-law, Mary Shearon of Atlanta; eleven grandchildren, Audrey Shearon Silas of Toney, Alabama, Amy Shearon of Shelbyville, David Shearon of Athens, Alabama, Ben Shearon of Salem, Oregon, Daniel Shearon of Shelbyville, Houston Shearon of Denver, Michael Shearon of Seattle, Margaret (Meg) Shearon of Atlanta, Robert Mott of O’Fallon, Illinois, and Charlie and Sarah Grace Coker of the Richmond community; 11 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to either Churches of Christ Disaster Relief, 410 Allied Drive, PO Box 111180, Nashville, TN 37222, or The Living Water Project, 409 Franklin Road, Brentwood, TN 37027.

Doak-Howell Funeral Home is serving the family.
