Charlene Boydston Shurbet

Graveside services for Charlene Boydston Shurbet (90) of Decatur, Texas, were held at 3 pm Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Sweetwater Cemetery in Decatur.

Charlene Boydston Shurbet was born on October 22, 1933, to Charlie Simmons and Bertha Elizabeth (Kemp) Boydston in Decatur, Texas, and peacefully passed away January 17, 2024, in Decatur, Texas.

Charlene was a woman of many passions and interests. One of her greatest joys in life was singing country and gospel music. She had a beautiful voice that could light up any room, and she often shared her talent by performing at the nursing home where she resided. 

Charlene’s faith was very important to her. She loved the Lord and was a member of Plainview Baptist Church in Krum, Texas. She will be deeply missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have known her. Her legacy lives on through the memories she created with loved ones.

Those left to cherish Charlene’s memory are her daughters Beverly North of Decatur, Texas, Kathy Loyd of Sanger, Texas, Vicki Jones and husband Tim of Krum, Texas; seven grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren.

Charlene is preceded in death by her parents; husbands Bernard O. Shurbet and Olan Eakman; brothers Bubba and Carroll Boydston; and sisters Othell Smith and Della McCrary.
