Aline Shepard Obituary

Aline (McDowell) Shepard was born February 25, 1932 as the fourth child of Alex and Gertrude (Moore) McDowell.  She was born and raised in (Doak Springs) Lee County, Texas across the creek where Mt. Olive Baptist Church was established, and where the family lived.

At an early age, she confessed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.  She worshiped alongside her family at Mt. Olive Baptist Church just near their home.  She attended school in the Doak Springs area Public Schools.

Aline later married Leroy Scott in 1952 and this union brought forth one daughter, Sharon Marie Scott.  Her husband enlisted in the military for a two year duty, leaving his wife and daughter to reside with her parents.  Later, Aline met Sterling Shepard, Jr. and they were joined in marriage on October 28, 1958.  This union birthed two sons, Roddie Mack Scott-Shepard and Sterling Shepard III.  They all resided in Austin, Texas until her demise.

Aline was known for her fashion and style.  She always coordinated her attire and accessories with excellence.  She loved all genres of music and had an affection for plants and gardening.

On Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at 2:20 A.M., Aline answered her Master's call at her home in Austin, with her children by her side.  She is preceded in death by:  her parents; two infant children; six brothers, Evva McDowell, Sr.(Erma), Ernest T. McDowell(Florence), George McDowell(Gladys), L.H. McDowell(Norma), Alex McDowell, Jr. and Willie L. McDowell(Daisy); and three sisters, Yvonne Williams, Louise Cochran(Jack) and Mae Ollie Davis(Arthur).

She leaves to cherish her memories: her three children, Sharon Marie Scott, Sterling Shepard III and Roddie S. Shepard; one brother, Clarence McDowell of Brownwood, Texas; one sister, Helen Washington of Bryan, Texas; seven grandchildren, Shante Greer, Sterling Shepard IV, Lando Shepard, Sr., Bryan Moore, Adrian Shepard, Anthony Sterling Shepard and Teneisha Ainsworth; 17 great-grandchildren; a special son, Larry Franklin; and a host of other relatives and friends.
