Shirley Lee Coker Haire, 55, died on Sunday, February 14, 2021.  Born, December 6, 1965, in Cheraw, SC she was a daughter of the late Earl Monroe and Mary Lee Howard Coker.

Shirley was a member of Cheraw Family Worship Center and was a devout Christian who believed in and cherished her God.  She was a member of several Feeding Tube Awareness groups.  Shirley had been living with a feeding tube since her brain stem stroke in 2014.  She beat all odds for seven years.  The dearest accomplishment in her life was her daughter Courtney, who was the only reason she fought for her life so hard.  She said that the only reason she was still living was to see her daughter graduate from college.

Shirley enjoyed bodybuilding at an early age and competed in several competitions.  She was always proud of her body and continued to take care of herself after her stroke.  Shirley was a cosmetologist for 30+ years, working many of those years at Hairstyles by Jan, and had many loyal customers.  She enjoyed gardening and taking care of animals.  Her passion was reading and transcribing her Bible daily.
