Shirley E. Tower

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” Proverbs 31:30-31

It is with our deepest sorrow that the Freeman, Richardson, and Tower families inform you of the homegoing of our beloved mother, sister, aunt, and cousin, Shirley E. Tower. This sad event took place on Dec. 23rd, 2021 at her home in Detroit, MI where she was surrounded in love.

Shirley was born in Careysburg, Liberia. She came to the states in the early 1980s and continued pursuing her career. She has one daughter, one grandchild, and a host of family and friends in the U.S.A. and Liberia.

She believed in celebrating life and we intend to do just that for her homegoing!
