LULA - Shirley Heaton Argo, 76, died Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.
She was born in Franklin County, the daughter of the late Henry and Mittie Savage Heaton. She was a member of Yonah Congregational Holiness Church and was a homemaker.
"Memaw" was loved by all, and she loved others deeply. She lived her life with positive attitude, integrity, and a smile. She had numerous health issues throughout the years of which she fought long and hard with no complaints. Regardless of her suffering she was always happy to see you and had a kind word for friends and family whether in person or on the telephone. She was the most courageous, unselfish, loving, brave, humble person many will ever know. We will all miss her terribly, this very special blessing from God.
