Mrs. Sheppard was born February 3, 1946 in Heard County to the late Henry Allen Pope, Sr. and Lema Adis Hill Pope. She was a member of Franklin First Baptist Church.

She worked as a supervisor for CBS records in Carrollton.

She had a deep love for her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. As one of many children born to Henry Allen Pope and Lema Pope, she had a large extended family of nieces and nephews.

One of her passions was traveling. One of her favorite places was Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. She also loved to walk on the beach. It was said that it did not matter which beach as long as it had sand. She liked to pick up and collect sea shells.
