Shirley Francis Reiselt

Shirley Francis Huffman Reiselt, 76, died Monday, October 14, 2013 in Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

The family received friends on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Anderson Funeral Home.

Funeral services were held on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 2 p.m. at Meadowbrook Baptist Church with interment in Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Ms. Reiselt was born on August 28, 1937 in New Bern, N.C. She is the daughter of the late George Romeo and Elizabeth Frances Huffman of New Bern, NC.

Throughout her life, Shirley had many talents.  She played piano in NC for Baptist Church of New Bern. She loved to help any underprivileged soul, loved to cross stitch, embroider, arrange flowers and did so as a career florist. She loved to sew and never with a pattern, just cut and sew. Absolutely loved to canvas paint, she would get a picture in her head and paint away — with her qualities she should have been a free-lance artist.

Shirley’s passion above all was landscaping. She was the owner of Creative Landscaping by Shirley. One of the best around, she was self-taught.  She did her own blueprints.  She could tell you anything you needed to know about plants and or trees. For a while, she taught classes in the agricultural division at the University of South Carolina. Her passion proves that when there is passion, the desire to be the best is phenomonial.

She is survived by her children: Della Arthur Bishop and husband, Nick, and son Richard Horton; George T. Arthur and wife, Trudy, and children, Christopher and Kaydee; Ronnie R. Reiselt and wife, Sonya, and children Ryan, Cortney and Hope; great-grandchildren, Hailey, Richard; Rese and Colton; she also is survived by her nephews and nieces and one great niece.

She now joins her son, the late Lloyd Fredrick Arthur of Florida, and her brothers, George and Billy Huffman.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to Meadowbrook Baptist Church, P. O. Box 118, Beaufort, SC  29901.

Anderson Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the family.
