Newport News High School Class of 1957

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   The sad news just continues to pour our way. Shirley Smith Langston, Class of 1957, passed away recently in Newport News.


 


From the Daily Press - 09/27/20: 

                  Shirley Smith Langston

    HAMPTON - Shirley was the daughter of the late, Martha L. Smith and Josey L. Smith of Newport News, VA.

She was born and raised in Newport News, VA, and a 1957 graduate of Newport News High School.

Shirley began her lifelong career at the Newport News Shipbuilding in 1958, serving 62 years with NNS, in Production Control Carrier Overhaul, as a planner scheduler.

Shirley enjoyed fishing on the James River, and admiring the Shipyard from her boat. She could be found on many weekends taking in the latest movies at the theater. Shirley's pride and joy was her 4 pound toy poodle "Matti". Over the last few months Matti has been a great sense of comfort, never leaving Shirley's side. One of her favorite names to be called was GeGe by her grandson, Cole.

Shirley made many friends throughout her life, from lifelong friends from the Shipyard, from boating and fishing, from the movies, and from all areas of her life.

 
 
 
 
  Many "Thanks" to the Riverside Hospice team of Melissa, Kenyana, and Heather. Thank you all for your unselfish and exceptional care given to Shirley in the past three months.

I was so sorry to hear about Shirley’s passing. I’m still in shock. Shirley was a very nice woman. We always looked forward to seeing each other every weekday morning. She would purchase a Daily Press and Virginia Pilot paper, and I would get updates on her precious dog, Matti. I was so happy that she got her dog after so many months of looking for another. She loved going out on her boat and fish. And spending time with her neighbors especially during UVA and James Madison games. I will miss her.

Morning Has Broken

Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic


1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!

2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
