BARBARA [SHIFFLETT] DAVIS
The Valley Virginian, VA, Feb. 23, 1923
After only a few days' illness, this faithful Christian, Mrs. Barbara Davis, passed to her reward on the morning of Feb. 21, aged 49 years. Her devoted husband, Mr. Wm. Davis, is left to mourn a true and loving companion. Two sons, Willie and Hubert, will miss the tender counsel and loving admonition that only the true mother can give, while the little daughter, Mary, so dearly loved by the fond mother, is bereft indeed of that tender watchful care, that none but the thoughtful mother can bestow. After funeral services by her pastor, Rev. K. Y. Umberger, who paid a beautiful tribute to the deceased, her body was tenderly laid to rest in the cemetery at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, of which she was a faithful member.
See Husband William's Obit

We will walk sometimes, to the dear one's grave,
In the pleasant summer hours,
We will speak to her in a sacred voice,
And cover her grave with flowers.

We will think of her in her Heavenly home,
And will trust with a hopeful trust,
That we may meet her there.

BLANCHE SHIFLETT WOODWARD PFITZINGER

The Dayton Daily News, Dayton, OH Feb. 2, 2002

Service held for Mrs. Woodward Pfitzinger

By Angelle Haney, Dayton Daily News

DAYTON | Even after she married Ted Woodward and moved to Dayton in 1947, Blanche Woodward Pfitzinger would still drive down to her father's grocery store on River Street in Franklin to pick up a few things here and there.  In her bright red 1956 Cadillac convertible. Sporting her full length mink coat. And then it was back home up Dixie Highway, according to her nephew, former Franklin Mayor Jim Mears.  Friday, family and friends from all over the country gathered to celebrate the life of the woman known affectionately to all of them as "Aunt Bee." When her nieces and nephews came to the Woodward's big house on Yale Avenue to visit Aunt Bee, they were in for a good time. "She would take us out for rides in her convertible," Mears said. "And you knew she wouldn't make you brush your teeth or worry too much about bedtimes."  A niece, Barb Shiflett of Franklin, said, "She was a wonderful, generous person. All the cousins were crazy about Aunt Bee."  Mrs. Woodward Pfitzinger worked at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for the intelligence division, was a buyer for the L.S. Ayers department store chain and a real estate agent in Dayton and in South Carolina. She also was an active force in founding Dayton philanthropic organizations, including the Dayton Opera Guild and the Cox Heart Institute Auxiliary.  "She was instrumental in getting the Cox Heart Institute at Kettering” Hospital, Mears said. "She was part of that group of women from the Dayton Country Club who got things done. "She was a lady who was a mover and a shaker." And she comfortable in the company of other movers and shakers. "Oh, we have some great pictures of her," Shiflett said. "There's one of her with Telly Savalas, another with Richard Crenna and his wife in a bar in New York City, and one from Spain, in 1978, with an ocelot!"  Added Mears: "There's even a story that she went to the Indianapolis 500 with Clark Gable, back in the forties." Mears declined to say whether his aunt and Mr. Gable were romantically involved.  After the death of her husband in 1974, Mrs. Woodward moved to Hilton Head Island, S.C., where she met and married Harry A. Pfitzinger, a Mobil Oil executive.  In 1988, at 73, she and her husband traveled to Seoul, South Korea, to watch her stepson, Peter Pfitzinger, compete in the Olympic marathon. It typified the fearless, giving spirit that had always endeared her to those who knew her.  "Anybody who met her just fell in love with her," Mears said. "She just had that kind of personality."  Mrs. Woodward Pfitzinger is survived by stepdaughter Anne Larocca of California and stepson Peter Pfitzinger of New Zealand; her sister Bertha Yeager of Middletown and brother Earl Shiflett of Florida.   Arrangements were handled by Eaton-Anderson-Unglesby Funeral Home, Franklin.

Her son was only 3 years of age and she knew she had to fight because of him, so began the long tough fight. With the support of a good family and good friends, she made it through the first battle. She was placed in remission. In 2010, the disease was back again and Brenda learned she had developed a second tumor. At this time, she was expecting her grandson to be born, so she knew she had to fight another battle for him. Again with the support of a good family and good friends, she made it through the second battle and again placed in remission. In June 2012, we were informed that there was yet another tumor. At this time she has seen her little boy grow into the man he is today and she was there for the birth of her grandson. She did not have any fight left in her. Brenda chose to not undergo any more treatments and to let God be her guiding light. Brenda loved being a stay at home mother, baking, playing cards, bingo and working on puzzles. Brenda is survived by her former husband, Randy Shiflett; son, Jeremy Shiflett; grandson, Austin Shiflett all of Brookville, IN; parents Norma and Fred Mathews of Middletown, OH; brother, Fred (Sandy) Mathews and sister, Robin (T.J.) Potrzebowski both of Elmira, NY; brother, Danny (Maddy) Mathews and sister, Penny Matherws both of Horesheads, NY; sister, Paula (Ken) Ward of Middletown, OH; brother, Randy (Netta) Mathews of Troy, PA as well as several nieces, nephews and many great friends. Brenda is predeceased by her grandparents, Andrew and Lillian Marshall to whom she lived the first 13 years of her life with and also her grandparents Florence and Fred Mathews to whom she was very close to. At Brenda's request, there will be no visitation. Also, please do not send flowers, instead make any and all donations to Mayfield Education and Research Foundation, 506 Oak St., Cincinnati, OH 45219. A special thank you to the staff at Garden Manor Extended Care center and the staff at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care for taking such great care of her during her last moments of life.

BULAH SHIFFLETT SPROUSE

The Daily Progress, Charlottesville, VA, Wed, May 2, 2007
Bulah S. Sprouse had her homecoming with the Lord on Monday, April 30, 2007, in Charlottesville. The oldest of 11 children, Bulah was born on May 26, 1926, to the late G. Harvey and Nelie S. Shifflett, in the area of Rockingham County that later became the Blue Ridge Parkway. Upon her family's move to Albemarle County, she lived in the Stony Point area as a child and later moved back to Stony Point with her husband and daughters in 1959, living there for the rest of her life. She was a long-time member of Liberty Baptist Church and most recently attended Belmont Baptist Church. As a full-time homemaker, Bulah kept a busy schedule working in her flower and vegetable gardens, serving in her church, baby sitting her nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, caring for relatives, and opening her home to her extended family for holiday gatherings. She had the gift of hospitality and her Christmas Day "covered dish" lunches were a family tradition for over 40 years where as many as 45 relatives and their guests would gather to enjoy both Bulah's hospitality and her cakes. "Guests" soon became "family" at "Aunt Bue's." Bulah also was a compassionate and gifted care-giver to the elderly and used this gift as a private duty sitter after her children were grown. Bulah is survived by her immediate family including her husband of 59 years, J. Earl Sprouse; her daughters, Gayle S. Trevillian and her husband, Tom; and Pamela F. Sprouse, all of Charlottesville; three adored granddaughters, Kelly T. Rex and her husband, Bryan, of Virginia Beach; Hayley A. Bannister and her husband, Casey, of Richmond; and Kami J. Trevillian of Charlottesville; and two precious great-granddaughters, Elizabeth M. Rex and R. Evelyn Rex of Virginia Beach, all of whom cherished their "Granny." Her much loved siblings include five sisters, Chellie S. Polonitza, and her husband, Edmund, of Richmond, Ruby S. Scruggs, Thelma S. Widener, and her husband, Benjamin, Nancy S. Thomas, and her husband, Rodney, and Linda A. Shifflett, all of Charlottesville; and four brothers, J. Edward Shifflett Sr., Ralph Shiflett, Randal Shiflett, and his wife, Della, and Sherman T. Shifflett, of Charlottesville. She was preceded in death by a brother, Ferrell S. Shifflett. Bulah is also survived by her sister-in-law, Martha W. Shifflett; a brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Herman C. and Joyce M. Sprouse; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and their spouses, who were all adored by their "Aunt Bue." Bulah's legacy is her love of her Lord and her family and friends which she exemplified through acts of service. Although 80 years was not nearly enough and she left us too soon, we hope to honor her by following her example. A celebration of her life will be held 11 a.m. Friday, May 4, 2007, at Belmont Baptist Church with Dr. Lindsay Sadler and the Reverend Greg Anderson officiating. Interment will follow at Holly Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Thursday May 3, 2007, at Hill and Wood Funeral Home.
