Schorr, Kathleen Kathleen Schorr of Glendale, Arizona passed away on August 30, 2015. "Kate" was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Long Island where she met and married Howell Schorr in 1987. Kate and Howell built a wonderful life for them both. Kate was a true champion and fought her battle with cancer since 2010 but, as it turned out, in her case cancer was more powerful than the cure. Kate often spoke at the Honor Health Cancer Group where she helped many people through their fight with cancer. She also worked in customer service for her husband's medical device company and touched the lives of many with her great smile, positive attitude and sense of humor. Kate's "Brooklyn" background always spiced up a conversation and left most with tears of joy. She loved to cook, decorate, shop and most of all she loved to love us back. Kate is survived by Howell Schorr, her loving husband of 28 years, her eight grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Casey, Sarah, Emily, Jessica, Samantha, Matthew, and Shayden, and her 5 children, Paul, Colleen, Allison, Jonathan, and Douglas. Visitation will be held on Friday, September 5, 2015 from 5-9 pm at Sunland Mortuary, 15826 Del Webb Blvd, Sun City, AZ. A funeral mass will be held the following day, Saturday, September 6, 2015 at 10:00 am at St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church, 15800 Del Webb Blvd, Sun City, AZ. She will be laid to rest at Sunland Memorial Park in Sun City, AZ. Condolences may be offered to Kate's family by visiting www.sunlandmemorial.com .

Shackelford, James "Jim" Gordon 89, of Phoenix, Arizona passed away on August 21, 2015 after a brief battle with cancer. He was born in Phoenix on October 2, 1925 and raised in the Ellis-Shackelford House on Central Ave. Jim attended Kenilworth Grade School, Phoenix Union High School, University of Arizona and Arizona State University. He was a loving husband of 58 years to Helen Metzger Shackelford who died in 2007. Jim loved and embraced the adventures life offered. He and Helen traveled all over the world and spent a great deal of time at the Flying M Ranch in Northern Arizona. His career in dental supply sales took him all over the state giving him the opportunity to do what he loved most, connecting with people, telling stories and tinkering to fix just about anything. He played the piano by ear and was an accomplished pilot. He enlisted in the Air Force during WWII and was trained at Thunderbird Field, receiving his check flight from his own father. He received his wings just before the war ended and was fortunate not to see combat. Jim was involved in many organizations including the Sheriff's Air Posse and Silver Eagles, served on the board of the Arizona Historical Society and enjoyed the Polo Club. He is loved and remembered for his gentile, happy spirit and being a good friend to all. His death was preceded by his brother Ellis' in 2013 and he leaves behind sister-in-law Sally Shackelford, nieces and nephews Diana Metzger Kessler, Kathryn Metzger, John Metzger, Sue Shackelford Spahle, and Brian Shackelford along with many great nieces and nephews. A celebration for this life well-lived will be at 6:00pm, Friday, October 2, 2015 (what would have been his 90th Birthday) at the Ellis-Shackelford House, 1242 N. Culver, Phoenix, AZ 85004. Jim's wishes were for contributions to be made to Hospice of the Valley 1510 E. Flower St., Phoenix, AZ 84014.
