Obituary

Shirley Oliver Battiste was granted eternal life on May 3, 2020. Shirley was 84 years old. Shirley was born in New Roads, La. and came to New Orleans with her parents when she was a small child. She was met in heaven by her mother Louise Davis Oliver and her father Alexander Oliver, Sr. Shirley was the oldest of her five siblings. Shirley loved her siblings immensely, and they loved her. They visited and talked to her on the telephone daily. Whenever Shirley needed anything, they gladly obliged. Shirley was married to the love of her life James Battiste, Jr. for over 61 years. Shirley and James were inseparable. Whenever you saw Shirley, you saw James, and vice versa. Shirley was a faithful parishioner at St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church for over 55 years. She loved God and her church family. She attended mass and the novena to St. Anthony every Tuesday. She also remained telephone and mail friends with the retired priests, brothers, and deacons at St. Mary of the Angels. Additionally, Shirley also attended the seasonal novenas for St. Jude. Shirley was a seamstress for over 41 years. After graduating from Joseph S. Clark High School, in 1954, Shirley obtained a job at Haspel's (Sewing Factory) in New Orleans. She worked at Haspel's for over 24 years, and when they closed the factory in New Orleans, Shirley applied for a job at Wemco Tie Co. formerly, Wembley. When she took the test, she received a perfect score. Shirley worked at Wemco for over 17 years and then she retired. When the World's Fair came to New Orleans in 1984, Shirley and James purchased an everyday pass to attend the fair until it ended. Shirley enjoyed The N. O. Jazz and Heritage Festivals, the casinos and participated in several bus rides to various casinos. When her mother was living, she enjoyed playing cards with the family. She loved playing bingo and going to the New Orleans Fair Grounds. Shirley truly enjoyed living her life. Shirley leaves to cherish her memory her husband James Battiste, Jr., her only sister, Marion O. Henry (Clarence (deceased)) and four brothers: George Preston Oliver (Annie (deceased)), Alexander Oliver, Jr. (Marian (deceased)), Joseph A. Oliver (Gloria), Alfred J. Oliver (Rosemary); two godchildren, Veronica A. Henry and Marcelyn Taylor; three aunts, Victoria D. Webb, Dr. Clara Davis, and Ceolia D.
