Shellye Brewton • October 25, 2022
The world lost a determined and tenacious soul today.
Shellye Elizabeth Ann Brewton, nee Lloyd, 86, of Pensacola, FL passed from this life on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, at Sandy Ridge Center for Rehabilitation & Healing in Milton, FL.
She was born February 13, 1936, in Pensacola, FL, to A.O. “Art” Lloyd, Sr. and Helen Elizabeth Lloyd, nee Miller, and was the youngest of three. She attended elementary and Jr. High School in Ferry Pass and graduated from J.M. Tate High School in 1956 where she played trumpet in the marching band.
She met her husband, Henry Clay Brewton, through her friendship with his youngest sister. They wed at Hillcrest Baptist Church in 1961 and remained in the Pine Forest area for the duration of their 54-year marriage. Over the years, Shellye held various positions with several companies in the area including Chemstrand, K-Mart, and Vanity Fair but her favorite job was being a mom.
She enjoyed music, singing in church, her dogs, of which she had many over the years, and spending time with her friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband and parents; her daughter-in-law Edith Brewton, nee Gunton, her siblings and their spouses A.O. “Sonny” and Gwen Lloyd, Bobbie Jo and Alan Harling, and nephew Wilton Batchelor.
Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Henry Brewton, Jr., her daughter Helen Brewton, her granddaughter Meredith Brewton and several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
We want to thank all the staff at Sandy Ridge for the wonderful job they did in taking care of mom over the last 3 years; you forever have our gratitude.
Services will be held at Pensacola Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 at 10:00am.
