Shirley (Bennett) Jamison, 92, passed away peacefully on April 14, 2021 at the Newmark Care Center in Kansas City. She was the beloved wife of the late Max L. Jamison.
She is survived by her daughter, Candy Fasone of Kansas City; daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and David Dowling of Montgomery City; grandson, Adam (Heather) Dowling of Columbia; grandson, Brad Dowling of St. Charles; and three great-granddaughters, Elizabeth Shirey, Abigail Kathleen and Emily Grace Dowling of Columbia.

Shirley and Max lived for 17 years in Liberty before moving to Mexico. They lived together in Mexico until his death in 1991. She continued living there until she moved to Kansas City to be with her daughter, Candy, in 2011. Shirley was employed by Dr. R.L. Searfoss, O.D., and Dr. David Luke, O.D., in Mexico for many years.
Shirley was a “people person” and had a warm, friendly personality. She had many friends who will miss her dearly. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life. She spent as much time with them as she could. She enjoyed gardening and had a true “green thumb.” She also had a love of animals and had many pets throughout her lifetime.
Shirley was preceded in death by her husband, Max L. Jamison; parents, Ethel and Jack Bennett; her brothers and sisters-in-law, Jack and Alyce Bennett and Morris and Betty Bennett and son-in-law, Sal Fasone. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
