Shirley Jean Alexander Wiley was born on February, 16, 1962, to Doretha and the late James Alexander. She graduated from Newellton High School in 1980. Tuesday, April 14, 2020, God whispered “Well done my child,” and she was called home.
Shirley confessed Christ at an early age, under the leadership of Rev. Benny Washington at Stonewall Baptist Church, where she remained a faithful member until her untimely death. She later met and married Edward Wiley, a union that would span almost 40 years.
Shirley was loved by so many people. She talked to anybody she saw. It did not matter if you were a stranger. She always made you feel welcome and comfortable. She loved to laugh and joke around. She was always smiling. She had a warm and loving spirit. Shirley was affectionately known by her kids, nieces, and nephews as Puff or The Queen; to Jaycob and Jaydah, she was Foxy; and to all, she was the life of the party.
Preceding Shirley in death were her dad, James “Dub” Alexander, and two nephews, Kennedy D. Alexander and Christopher Puryear.
She leaves to cherish her memories: husband, Edward Wiley of Waterproof, LA; three children, one daughter, Shamekia Alexander of Houston, TX, and two sons, Edward Alexander of Baton Rouge, LA, and Coby Alexander of Houston, TX; one stepson, Anthony Raymo of SC; seven grandchildren, Kameya Pollard, Edward Alexander, Jaycob Jones, Jaydah Jones, Kenya Alexander, Kyla Alexander, and Anasia Wade; five step-grandchildren, Brittany Raymo, Brian Washington, Ashyree Raymo, Kaitlyn Raymo, and Jayden Raymo; five sisters, Patricia James (John), Jacqueline Alexander, Carol Alexander, and Flora Alexander, all of Houston, TX, and Tanja Christian (Daniel) of Dallas, TX; three brothers, Larry Morrison, Sr., James Alexander (Cris), and Kennedy Alexander (Susan), all of Las Vegas, NV; three sisters-in-law; eight aunts and three uncles; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; a special friend, Pamela Wilson; special cousin, Terry Bryant; and a special aunt, Irma Jean Gayles.
