Shirley Corbett Bangs

September 19, 1927 - July 15, 2019

Shirley Corbett Bangs, 91, was called home to be with the Lord on July 15, 2019. She was born in Hot
Springs, North Carolina to Kenneth King Corbett and Waco Henry Corbett on September 19, 1927. She
was a graduate of Maury High School in Norfolk and took classes at the Division of William and Mary
(Norfolk). Shirley married Lester “Les” M. Bangs, Jr. (now deceased) in 1949 and cherished a marriage of 57 years.
She was a devotedly caring wife, mother, and daughter who took responsibilities very seriously in her
devotion to the Lord’s commandments and as a homemaker. She was a member of Eastminster
Presbyterian Church (PCA) serving God as a Sunday School teacher in the kindergarten department for
many years. Dearly close to her heart were the love of her many pets, the enjoyment of reading, writing
poems, sewing, and nature’s beauty.

She is survived by her daughter, Glenda Bangs Dunn (Calvin); sister-in-law, Joan Bangs Estienne; special
nieces and nephews; and loving friends. She is predeceased by her husband; parents; sister, Doris
Corbett Pierce; and brother, Kenneth King Corbett, Jr.

The family would like to express thankful gratitude to the many medical personnel, loving friends, and
individuals who cared, prayed, and encouraged Shirley during her illness. “And we know that all things
work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
(Romans 8:28 NKJV)
