Sherley Poston

On an early spring morning, March 7, our Mom and Grandma stood tall and walked into heaven to be with her Lord and to hug Daddy.

Sherley Kissinger Poston was born in McKinney on Nov. 13, 1939, to Elsie and Woodrow Kissinger.

Sherley married Earl Poston in McKinney on Sept. 20, 1958, and they enjoyed 55 years of loving and working together. She loved telling us the story of how they met when he would drive his shiny car around the square and in front of the Five & Dime store that she worked in, trying to impress her. Mom and Dad worked in partnership with his welding business from the start.

Their union was blessed with two daughters, Penni and Page.

Growing up with three younger brothers, Mom loved the outdoors. She always had great stories from her childhood of fishing trips and camping with her family. She was also great at a lot of sports. She enjoyed playing basketball and softball, but she excelled at water skiing and roller skating. She always said her dream career would have been skiing at Cypress Gardens or being a part of roller derby.

Mom and Dad moved to the “Hill Country” in 1975, and they owned and operated London Hall and they met many lifelong friends there. Mom fell in love with helping Dad at the ranch and always loved the peacefulness of the Llano River.

Sherley was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Fairview and later moved her membership to the First Baptist Church in Mason. Sherley is survived by her daughters Penni Wilde and husband David of Wall and Page Wright and husband David of Hamilton; grandson Peyton Wilde of Lubbock; granddaughters Sawyer and Kelton Wright of Hamilton; brother Tom Kissinger and wife Peggy of Anna; sisters- in law Imogene Poston of Weston, Judy Kissinger of Ivanhoe and Linda Kissinger of Fairview.

A graveside service was held March 10 in Gooch Cemetery in Mason.

The family wished to thank the staff of Focused Care in Hamilton and Elara Caring Hospice.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Mason Funeral Home.
