Catherine Mary Shakespeare

Catherine Mary Shakespeare, 86, of Sudan, formerly of Levelland, passed from this life Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, September 20, at the City of Levelland Cemetery, with pastor Scott Hensley officiating.
Catherine was born January 27, 1935, to Ben L. Schultz and Margaret Kempf Schultz in Lubbock County.
She was a wife, mother, home maker, cook, beautician and co-owner of Shakespeare Electric with her late husband, Bill ‘Shakey’ Shakespeare.
Catherine always had a project to do, ranging from sewing to building. She and Shakey built a cabin in Cloudcroft, New Mexico, from the ground up.
Her real passion was growing flowers. After retiring from the electrical business, they opened a greenhouse gardening center.
Just like most grandparents, Catherine was very proud of her grandchildren. Always loved to hear what was happening in their lives.
She loved her dog, a special gift from dear friends.
After she was no longer able to do projects, she watched them on TV on DIY Network and Barnwood builders and she would be happy.
She was also known for her German heritage, just a tad bit stubborn.
Catherine was preceded in death by her husband, William ‘Shakey’ Shakespeare; parents; and a brother, Carl L. Schultz.
She is survived by her daughters, Margaret Shakespeare of Sudan and Teresa and R.E. Hensley of Sundown; brother, Ben L. Schultz, Jr. and wife, Evelyn Schultz; and grandchildren, Alysha and Toby Reep of Lubbock and Jeremy and Kelera Hensley of Shallowater; and great-grandchildren: Jaxson Reep, Phoenyx Hensley, Maverik Hensley and Malaki Hensley.
Arrangements are under the direction and personal care of the professionals at Krestridge Funeral Home, 806-897-1111.
