L a GRANDEUR, Shirley (nee Driscoll) - After a long, hard fought battle with cancer, Mom passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Saturday, February 9, 2013. Mom was only 77 and ready for so much more. She is predeceased by her husband Bill LaGrandeur Sr. Mom was loved by and devoted to her children Carol (Bob Bartlett), Billy LaGrandeur Jr. and Paul (Anna) LaGrandeur. Mom cherished her grandson Rob (Cherish) Bartlett and loved being "GG" to Sydney and Ben. Mom will be missed by her brother Joey (Gail), her cousin Lynn (Ralph) and best friend Marge (Frank). God needed a soul with a really big heart so he called her home. Mom joins dad and together they will celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary this Tuesday, February 12th.
