(01 Nov 1936 - 06 Mar 2019)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   There is more sad news this Saturday.  Shirley _____ Caywood, widow of NNHS Principal, Mr. John Caywood, passed away at home in Yorktown at the age of 82. 

 


From The Daily Press - 03/09/19: 

                   Shirley _____ Caywood

    YORKTOWN - Shirley Caywood of Yorktown, Va. passed away peacefully, at her home with her family by her side, on March 6, 2019, at the age of 82.

She was born a West Va. girl on November 1, 1936.

Shirley was preceded in death by her husband, John M. Caywood.

She leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Debby Walden (Denny) and Trisha Carr (Mark); stepson, Bruce Caywood; grandchildren, Shelley Quatro-Abel (Barry), April Firth (Ricky), and Brian Carr; great-grandchildren, Alexis Quatro, Devin Quatro, Caleb Firth; and great-great-grandson, Sage Kendall.

She was a wonderful blessing to her family, extended family, and friends. No one was a stranger, she talked to everyone as though she had known them for years. Her passions were shopping and Dr. Pepper! Her greatest joy and love were her family, especially her grandchildren. Shirley was beautiful inside and out, and funny and feisty!

 
 
 
 
  She will truly be missed.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, March 10 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. at Peninsula Funeral Home.

At Shirley's request, no funeral service will be held.

I've known Shirley my entire life. She and my mom, Sarah Ingels, were best friends for 52 years. To call Shirley anything other than family would be understating what she means to us.

Visiting Shirley and John's house on our Christmas Eve circuit was a tradition in our family for decades. It was one of my favorite stops. Even when I was old enough to drive, and was going separately from my mom and late stepfather, Larry, I still went to Shirley and John's. Their home was always welcoming. The air was filled with positivity, and so, so much laughter. As life and circumstances change, so do traditions; and going to their home on Christmas Eve is one tradition I continue to miss well into my adult life.

In life, and now in death, Shirley will always be a beloved and cherished soul. I am so grateful I had the gift of knowing her, of experiencing her warmth, her wit, her feistiness, her laugh, and her truly genuine nature.

Shirley gave me one last gift just a few weeks ago, and that was the opportunity to visit with her when she knew she didn't have a lot of time left. I drove my mom up for one last visit with her lifelong best friend. It was a quick trip; we arrived on a Tuesday and left on a Thursday. I had the great fortune of spending time with Shirley on each of the three days we were there. I wouldn't trade anything for those hours spent hearing her stories, her laughter, and sharing that one last hug. My thoughts are with you, Debbie, Trisha, Shelley, and all of your extended family.

With much love and admiration for Shirley, sincerely,

Traci Turner

Mr. Caywood was my principal, and I loved him. I'm sure Ms. Shirley was equally admirable. May her memory be a blessing.

The Strife Is O'er, the Battle Done

Text: Anonymous Latin; translated by Francis Pott (1832-1909)
Music: Giovanni P. da Palestrina; arranged by W.H. Monk (1823-1889)
Tune: VICTORY, Meter: 888 with Alleluias
 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done,
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed:
let shout of holy joy outburst.
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The three sad days are quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead:
all glory to our risen Head!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
He closed the yawning gates of hell,
the bars from heaven's high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumphs tell!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,
from death's dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live and sing to thee.
Alleluia!
