Carol and Edward Sheppard

Edgar's picture

Edward Ray Sheppard was born November 13, 1936 to Roy E. Sheppard and Bertha Schrader. He grew up in and around Llano, Texas. He had such a fondness for the land and the animals of the Texas Hill Country. Edward worked as a plumber but his employment did not define him, it was only a means to an end. Shep had a unique way of looking at things, and was a deep thinker. He enjoyed the process of planning a project more than actually finishing it. Edward had a love for genealogy, fishing, sports and telling corny jokes.

Carol Jan Munsell was born January 15, 1945 to Lorenzo Dow Munsell, and Mary Elizabeth Starr in Santa Paula, California. She had such fond childhood memories of the orange blossom scented air near their home. The family moved to Mason, Texas as the drought was breaking in the 1950’s. She grew up in Mason, but moved to Llano when she married Edward on August 10, 1963. Edward and Carol have been married for 55 years. They had three kids, Delana, Jamie, and Tom. She loved to sew and made many of the kids’ clothes on a Singer sewing machine she got as a teenager.
