Floie Shedd Duvall, of Holly Pond, Alabama, entered heaven’s gates on Monday morning, January 9, 2023, at the age of 88.
Mrs. Duvall was born to Mathis John and Emma Lee Young Shedd on September 20, 1934, in Cullman County, Alabama.
Floie was a member of the Redan Baptist Church family. Tommy and Floie married on January 14, 1954, and they would have celebrated sixty-nine years of marriage on Saturday. Floie was a good woman, a woman of virtue, and those who loved Floie knew that to know her was to love her. Mrs. Duvall defeated cancer four separate times. She was a strong woman - a fighter, and her faith in Christ and love of her family saw her through not only her battle with breast cancer, but her fight against lymphoma as well. Floie was a devoted wife and mother. She enjoyed making home a welcoming place for her husband and children and enjoyed showing her family her love for them with the meals she prepared. Floie was a dear friend to many. She was always there for those who needed her - anybody, and everybody. Her love and support for those she loved knew no bounds. Floie loved without hesitation or reserve, and she will be missed greatly by her family and friends.
Mrs. Duvall is preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Ottis Shedd, Lonnie Shedd, Norbet Shedd; and a sister, Tava Shedd Brown.
Those surviving Floie includes her beloved husband, Tommy Duvall; son, Tommy Russell Duvall (Cecelia); daughter, Dorinda Duvall Smith (Rodney); grandchildren, Adriane Duvall, Blake Horne (Paige), Quyenten Duvall (Jordan), Kloe Duvall, Raven Smith, Alex Robinson (Melanie), Austin Robinson, Hope Sonnier (Gabe); great-grandchildren, Kaden, Raylee, Maci, Aubree, and baby boy Sonnier; sister, Evelyn Batemon; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
