She worked for numerous years in the Amarillo Independent School District at several schools, most notably Caprock High School. She is survived by the love of her life, Earl; her three children, Ann Sampier and husband Geary, Tommy Tankersley and wife Dana, and Scott Tankersley and wife Angie; eight-grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Shirley was a mother to countless, a friend to all, and believed in many when others had given up. Her family asks that all who come to celebrate her life wear bright colors to remember her glowing spirit. In lieu of flowers, a benefit account has been established at Amarillo National Bank, in the name of Shirley Tankersley or Mrs. Tank, for scholarships to be given to future Caprock High School graduates.
