FALMOUTH – Shirley E. Lockhart, 72, died Friday, Jan. 2.

She was born Dec. 10, 1931, in Swampscott, Mass., a daughter of Harriet Dunn. She was a graduate of Edward Little High School.

She worked as a bookkeeper for several local businesses, and retired from Hannaford Brothers in 1992.

She attended the First Baptist Church of Portland, where she was a former Deaconess, as well as a member of the choir.

She was a very accomplished artist, and taught ceramics and china painting for many years at Falmouth Ceramics. She also made many beautiful cakes for special events and weddings. A giving person, she contributed her time and money to numerous charities and public service organizations. She loved to sew and knit costumes for her children and grandchildren.
