Shirley McClanahan Maynor

Betty Rose Palomba reports:

"With much sadness I want you to know that Shirley passed away in her sleep this morning at 3:00 a.m. No arrangements have been made yet."  -Betty Rose

From Jerry Gaudet:

With great sadness, we received word of Shirley McClanahan Maynor's passing. She did all she could to stay with us, but it was time and she had earned her reward.

CHS'54's "LDL" became a reality because of Shirley and we thank her for this gift.

Arrangements are not yet known. Expressions of condolence will hopefully find there way to her three sons at Shirley's address:

From Mitzi Roper:

"While I am very sorry to lose her, I am happy that her long struggle is over.
I went to see her on Thursday afternoon and she was asleep. I waited for awhile (her roommate kept saying, "Wake her up!"), but I just did not have the heart to do it. I knew that she couldn't live much longer and talking was difficult. She didn't need company anyway---she needed rest.

I went to the desk and asked for a piece of paper and an envelope, wrote her a letter and put it on her bedside tray table. I doubt that she was able to read it, but that was not important to me-----I just wanted her to know IF she was able to read or IF someone told her that there was a letter for her, that she would know that (I, or someone) cared enough to come by to see her----IF she was that lucid.

She put up a fight and never complained and I'm confident that she died with dignity as she went to be with her Lord."
