Shirley Ann Boldin/ Rushing
Born 03-24-1948 in Fort Gaines, Ga.

Mother:  Cenola Boldin
Father:   Robert James Boldin

Children:  Bobbie Jean Boldin, Edward James Boldin, Lois Lavern Boldin.  I am the third child born of this union.

At the age of 8 years old my family moved to Newark, N.J.  I attended schools: Charlton Street and South Side High School. I graduate in 1965.  As a younger girl I always kept a job. The first job I had was with the next door neighbors, the Mathews'.  I would make 75 cent an hour.  Everytime I went to the store they would give me a quarter. My next job was with a lady name Vi, she would pay me every week.  Ms. Taylor was the last one I work for.  I would work after school and on week ends. God always blessed me with someone in my life that I could keep some change in my pocket, My mother and father didn’t have to buy  everythings for me, I even paid for my class dues and things I need for my senior year.  My sister bought my prom dress.  

When I finish school I worked at Bell Telephone as an operator.  That’s when I married my high school sweetheart, Raymond Cantrell. 12-31-65.  I worked at Western Electric, Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  While I was in school I worked at the Golden Cafeteria.  I always kept part-time jobs.  Tom's Chicken Shack was one of them. Later after I finished school I started to barmaid part-time.  I would make more money on the weekend than I would on my regular job.  I started working at Arts High School, Newark, N.J as a Security guard and I worked there for ten years.

I met my husband Robert in 1974.  We have been together for 32 years, we have one son together, but a total of 6 kids.  I never say step kids because they came with the package.  We moved to Fort Gaines, Ga. (my birthplace) in May of 1986, a place I thought I would never live, but after my mom and dad move back my husband said it would be cheaper to live down here.

I like it here I do miss bowling, the spa. I manage to stay busy, with church, my mother, voter registration, and  Sunday school teacher.  I work in the school system here as a substitute teacher.  We have been living in Georgia for 20 years now.  This is just a brief overview of my life.
God has been real good to me and my family. I guess it was his plan for me to be here, so I am going to wait and see what is next.

All Things work together for the good for them that love the Lord.
