Shirley Mura McGlinn was always growing into the very best most loving person she could be. My contact with her started back at Immaculata High School in Leavenworth, Kansas where she we were both involved in YCS ( Young Christian Students and CYO ( Catholic Youth organization. Someplace I have pictures of YCS study weeks we both attended and the natl. CYO convention in Kansas City. Shirley had a joyful, peaceful heart then and maintained it all of her life. I followed her courageous , graceful struggle with cancer through Larry Gunthers emails. We connected again the fall of 2011 at the Imac reunion. I COULD SEE THE DEEP FAITH AND PEACE THAT SHE HAD WITHIN. Her spirit was still shining bright, her love of life in full bloom. When we are touched by someone they are forever a part of us...no matter the time and distance. She remains forever with us in Spirit... a new special angel in heaven for us all to pray to and thank. The lesson: tell people daily while they are alive how they touch us. Say thank you often, write the note. Spread the joy and gratitude. Celebrate the loving life that Shirley lived.
