Wednesday, November 10, 1948 - Thursday, December 24, 2015

Ms. Cynthia J. "Shan~Tiffy" Smith of Slocomb passed away Thursday, December 24, 2015 at Flowers Hospital.  She was 67. 

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 27 in the chapel of Sorrells Funeral Home & Crematory in Slocomb with Rev. Scott Byrd & Rev. Brian Cowley officiating.  The family will receive friends one hour prior to service time. 

Cynthia was born November 10, 1948 in Houston County to the late Stacy and Frances Margaret Smith.  She owned and operated Shan~Tiffy's Flower Shop in Slocomb for many years.  She was known for her beautiful, one of a kind, silk baskets with pretty, perfect bows, large live plants and collegiate wreaths.  Cynthia loved the citizens of Slocomb and they loved her. She was kind, good and opinionated!  On more than one occasion,  Cynthia was quoted in the local paper or interviewed  by a local television news reporter concerning the issues of the day, and rest assured, her analysis would always be honest and entertaining.  Slocomb will miss "Shan~Tiffy"! 

In addition to her parents, one brother, Guy H. Smith preceded her in death. 


Survivors include two daughters: Shannon Sheffield and Tiffany Abbott Rodgers, both of Slocomb; three grandchildren whom she loved dearly and were always right: Hagan, Triston and Austin; one sister, Charlotte Smith, Columbus, GA; one brother, John T.

I sure will miss you Shan-Tiffy! You were the most talented florist. Nobody could do a mesh wreath like you! Saturday's at the store will never be the same without your feisty spirit. Rest in peace sweet lady!

Oh how I remember the good ole days with Cynthia's two girls whom I had the pleasure of teaching in Kindergarten. I enjoyed the company of Cynthia as a parent, person and business lady. I am shocked by her passing and prayers are going up for the family I knew so well during my teaching years at Slocomb Elementary. God Bless all the family members.

I am so thankful to have seen Cynthia the day before her passing. She has always been dear to our family. I remember her taking Shannon and me to the movies at the old Slocomb theater. Her beautiful flower arrangements adorned our family's celebrations and services. Love ‚̧ԳŹ

Cynthia was one of my best friends. We didn't talk or see each other very often but when I called to order flowers or went to the shop we would have a good Ole fashioned bullshit session. I met her in 1987 when I was a police officer in Slocomb, I would be checking doors downtown at 2 or 3 in the morning and there was Cynthia work in her butt off in her shop. She was truely one of the kindest and hardest working people I have ever known. I left Slocomb in 2000 but whenever I needed flowers for anyone in Ala I could call her and she always made beautiful arrangements . I have always thought highly of her and her "tell it like it is " attitude . I will miss my dear friend but I will think of her and smile for she was the kind of person who brought a smile to my face. God bless Shannon and Tiffany and those who Cynthia loved. May God's grace help you mourned this loss.
