Shirley Marie Terry was born February 12, 1937, to Chester and Alice Terry in Grady County, Oklahoma.  Shirley graduated from the Middleberg High School Class of 1955.  Shirley played basketball at Middleberg and continued to love the sport, following area high school basketball, OU basketball, and especially her favorite OKC Thunder basketball until her passing.
Shirley married the love of her life, Billy Wyant, on May 23, 1958, and before long they welcomed sons, Steven and Gregory.  Shirley and Billy’s 59 years of marriage brought forth two sons, six grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.  

Shirley, affectionately known as Meme, was a gifted seamstress.  Shirley easily created everything from crafts and quilts to specialty garments and elaborate wedding gowns.  Along with enjoying sewing and basketball, Shirley loved music, with her favorite artists being the Statler Brothers.  Shirley enjoyed her community, bowling in a mix-league in Chickasha and also volunteering for her church’s Indian Taco fundraiser for a number of years.  Shirley especially loved spending time with her family and attending her church at Middleberg.
