Carolyn Annette Shields • December 27, 2021
Carolyn Annette Shields, 83, of Cantonment passed away on Monday, December 27, 2021.
Mrs. Shields was born in Graceville, Florida on April 14, 1938 to Curtis and Ethel Skinner.
Heaven gained another amazing angel. Carolyn was the best at being a Wife to her husband, Mother to her children, Nonie (grandmother and great grandmother) to her grandkids, sister to her siblings, aunt and most of all a friend. She leaves behind that same spirit inside of them. She loved to make everyone happy and she wasn’t satisfied until you were. Her endearing love and kindness meant she never met a person she didn’t want to make family. Through her love, our family extended exponentially throughout the years as she ‘adopted’ those she met and welcomed them as one of our own.
Carolyn married Frank Shields who preceded her in death after almost 60 years of marriage. Together they attended Milestone Baptist Church. She was also preceded in death by her father and mother.
Survivors include her four children, Nancy Shields (Bruce), Frankie Shields (Cheri), Melonee Shields and Ramona Shields (Jose); step-mother, Sylvia Skinner; siblings, William Skinner (Carol), DeWayne Skinner, and Elaine Todd (Richard); step-sister, Teresa Girton (Steve); grandchildren, Harvey Cardwell (Carlie), Miranda Cardwell, Amy Dooley (James), Randee Shields (William), and Samantha Shields (Andrew); great-grandchildren, Adalia and Amelia Beaulieu, Aylen Pantages-Shields, David Spear, Wilson and Lewis Cardwell, and Jackson Dooley; as well as, beloved cousins, nieces, nephews and step-grandchildren.
Due to the COVID situation the family has selected to have private services at this time. A memorial service may be scheduled at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Milestone Baptist Church, 3800 Pine Forest Road, Cantonment, Florida 32533.
