Shirley Theresa Hebert passed away at the age of 82 on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at Franklin Foundation Hospital with her family by her side.

Shirley was a native and lifelong resident of Franklin and the oldest of three children born to the late Otis Joseph Hebert and the late Amelia Picard Hebert. In her earlier years she worked as an operator for South Central Bell Telephone Company and then Silverman's Department Store. Many will remember her from her many years working as the Water Department Clerk for the City of Franklin, where she retired from. What brought her the most joy in life was taking trips with her family and just spending time with them, especially the babies.

Those she leaves to cherish her memories include her sister, Dolores M. Hebert; nieces and nephews, Mark Hebert, Brad Hebert, Beth Hebert, Larry Hebert, and Charlotte Evans; as well as numerous great and great great nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Lawrence Paul Hebert.

Visitations will be held Wednesday, March 14, at the Church of the Assumption beginning at 9:00 a.m., with the Holy Rosary being prayed at 10:00 a.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. with Fr. Lloyd Benoit as Celebrant. Following the Mass, she will be laid to rest in the Franklin Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Mark Hebert, Brad Hebert, Larry Hebert, Laine St. Blanc, Lawson St. Blanc, and Lex Hebert.
