Shirley Faye Rinehart was born on July 5,1940 to Ora Mae and Fred Warren Billings in Shawnee Oklahoma. She grew up with her parents and 2 sisters in California. She married Michael Owen Rinehart on August 6,1966 in Long Beach California.

She and her husband began their married life in Everett Washington and over the next 8 years had 4 children. She was a dedicated mother and homemaker. She was a Christian by faith and had a long and personal relationship with her Lord and Savior. She was loved by many and lived her life dedicating her life to her children for which they will be eternally grateful.

She made her home in Hot Springs Arkansas for 20 years to be close to her parents in their retirement years. After her husband passed away in 1999 she started a new journey in life that had her moving around with her children while they were establishing their lives. This brought her full circle back to the place where it all began in Everett Washington.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 33 years, her parents, 1 sister and 1 son-in-law. She leaves behind 3 sons: Michael O. Rinehart Jr. Of Everett Wa., Fred B. Rinehart (Janel Rinehart) of Vancouver Wa., and Stuart G. Rinehart of Everett Wa., 1 daughter: Sandra R. Smith of Burleson, Texas, 1 granddaughter: Alexis Rinehart of Vancouver, WA and 1 sister: Fredda Rowan of Tennessee. She will be dearly missed every day but we have faith we will be reunited one day with her and our Lord Jesus Christ.
