Shirley “Nanny” Massey

Shirley “Nanny” Massey passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 9, 2023. She was a dedicated wife, mother and Nanny and took pride in her occupation in each of these roles and was one of the BEST at them.

Shirley is survived by her loving husband, BB Massey, of sixty-nine years. Her children, Tommy (Theresa Upchurch, fiancé), and Joy (Mike) Jackson. She is preceded in death by her daughter Angie Heath. As a passionate animal lover, Shirley also considered her dachshund, Abigail, as one of her children.

She was a loving grandmother, “Nanny”, to Ann, Bobby, Stephanie, Henry and Harry and great-grandmother to four.

Shirley’s remains will be buried in the Massey Family Cemetery, Zebulon, NC.

The family wishes to thank everyone for all the prayers and help our family has received from our family and friends at this difficult time. A special thank you to the staff at Wake Med and Springbrook Rehab, Clayton, NC (Kelly, Joy and Virginia) for all the excellent care that you provided.
