Sister Shirley Ann Sanders was born to the late Frances Sanders and Sam Lewis on November 24, 1957, in Darlington, South Carolina. As a child, she was loved in school and enjoyed attending church services. Shirley took her eternal rest with Christ on January 21, 2022, at age 64.

At an early age she joined the Bethesda Baptist Church and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. Later, she became a member of the Life Changing Word Ministry under the leadership of Elder James Sanders, where she was Baptized in the name of Jesus and received the Holy Spirit.
