Shelby Dowless

January 10, 1943 — March 31, 2020

Shelby Jean Dowless, 78, of Saluda, NC passed away on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lavon Housand and Susan Rebecca Edgarton Housand, her husband, Dickie Dowless and one sister, Leura Fowler. Shelby leaves behind two daughters: Tabatha Darby (Jay) of Pelzer, SC; Gigi Talbert (Gary) of Douglasville, GA; one brother, Tex Housand (Peggy) of Clarendon, NC; one sister, Lois Singletary (Charles) of Tabor City, NC; six grandchildren: Hunter Darby, Brooke Darby, Charity Nichols (David), Jonathan Talbert (Julie), Justin Talbert (Erica), and Jason Talbert (Ashley) and two great grandchildren: Adalynn and Leighton.

Shelby met the love of her life, Dickie Dowless in 1966 and made a life of 40 years with him until his death in 2006. She was a resourceful and frugal woman who adored her family and her cats. Shelby’s quiet yet witty demeanor will surely be missed.

A private graveside service will be held on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Greenville Free Medical Clinic, 600 Arlington Avenue, Greenville, SC 29601- 3204.
