Shirley Mae Taunton
December 23, 1930 - April 24, 2018

Shirley Mae Balusek Taunton, age 87, passed away on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at her home. She was born to the late Jessie Daisy Burgess and Marion Lee Burgess on December 23, 1930 in Orange, Texas. She was predeceased by her first husband, Elton Jim Balusek, the father of her three daughters, and by her second husband, James Roy Taunton. She was a longtime resident of Freeport / Lake Jackson, Texas. She is survived by three daughters, Kathy Balusek, Janis Balusek, and Lenise Garratt (Gene), three grandchildren, Casey Miller, Chris Miller, and Jamie Fuller (Chase), four great grandchildren, Genevieve Miller, Miles Miller, Jake Fuller, and Eric Fuller. Our mother loved people and had many friends. She was a member of First Baptist Church Freeport for over 60 years. She was a lady of many talents, in fact I don’t think there isn’t anything she couldn’t do if she put her mind to it. She owned a Conoco gas station and an ice cream shop (Bresler’s 33 Flavors), was a evangelistic singer and made two albums, she was an avid fisher lady and a member of Bass’n Gals. She REALLY loved to fish, just three days before her death she was catching and releasing large mouth bass on the lake behind her home. She was also a fabulous cook and an awesome baker. Our mother knew her death was imminent due to stage five renal failure and an aortic dissection, yet she had the peace that only her God and Savior could give. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3. One of her favorite songs was, “Something Beautiful” by Bill Gaither. She had many trials and hardships like we all do, but she gave all her brokenness and strife to Him and He made something beautiful out of her life. Yes, He did! “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3. Visitation will be from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, with funeral service following at 2:00 pm on April 28, 2018 at Lakewood Funeral Home, 98 North Dixie Dr., Lake Jackson, TX 77566, Phone - 979-297-6464.
