Luevano, Shirley Ann Margolis - Los Angeles  
May 4, 1925 - March 9, 2016 Shirley Ann Margolis Luevano, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and aunt passed away peacefully at her home in Calabasas with her family at her side. She is survived by her husband Daniel, daughter Mary, son Mark, daughter-in-law Annetta, and grandchildren Terrence and Paul. Shirley, a native Angeleno, was born in Boyle Heights. She grew up in Vista del Mar children's home in West Los Angeles, and attended Palms Grammar School, Hamilton and Fairfax High Schools, Santa Monica College, and UCLA, from which she was awarded a B.A. in History. Shirley prized knowledge and scholarship, worked for the public good, loved entertainment and athletics, but above all treasured family. She religiously attended her children's and grandchildren's recitals, athletic contests and performances. She traveled throughout the world with Dan, and loved to organize family reunions. She opened her home to guests, who always were treated as extended family, and never were allowed to leave hungry. Shirley's love of UCLA spanned six decades. She attended symposia, concerts, plays, and loved walking through the campus, with her family. For decades, she was a fixture at Jackie Robinson Stadium, rooting on her beloved Bruin baseball team. Shirley was involved in politics for most of her adult life. She worked on Frank Mankiewicz's campaign for the Assembly in 1950, and two years later covered both the Democratic and Republican conventions in Chicago. A lifelong Democrat, Shirley was close to many luminaries in California politics, including Edmund G. (Pat) Brown, Jesse Unruh and John Tunney. She had the honor of representing the United States at the inauguration of Mexican President Gustavo Diaz Ordaz. Shirley volunteered countless hours raising funds for public causes. For twenty years she worked for the County Department of Consumer Affairs, as an intake worker, fielding calls from individuals who needed advice about how to address injustices. Shirley loved life in Southern California; riding on the beach bike paths, attending plays at the Music Center, visiting the Descanso Gardens, or hiking through the Santa Monica Mountains. She lived life to the fullest, never slowing down. Her body is at rest, but her spirit and memory will be with us always.
