Alice Christine Ferguson Sheppard

Alice Christine Ferguson Sheppard went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at the age of 96. She was born August 3, 1921 in Hallieford, and she was the third and youngest daughter to the late Judson and Nellie Ferguson.

During her 38-year tenure of teaching she touched the lives of many as she taught in Gloucester, Charles City, Middlesex, and Mathews counties.

As a child, Christine joined Ebenezer Baptist Church, where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Personal Savior. She left an amazing legacy in church as she served in several capacities.

On June 27, 1964 she was joined in holy matrimony to the late Willard Sheppard Jr. They shared many happy days together for more than 28 years.

She leaves to cherish fond memories her stepdaughter, Monnita Clayborne, and step-granddaughter, Ebony Smith, both of Baltimore, Maryland, and a host of family members and friends.
