We are so very sad to announce the passing last night (10/23) of group member Shirley Phillips.
Shirley was a wonderful woman. She always had a smile on her face (may be a cliche, but so true for her), and her stories always made us laugh. We always looked forward to hearing her read her latest work, all of which drew on her life experiences.
Shirley was also a painter and exhibited her work at local galleries alongside her husband Bobby's woodworking pieces.
There are no words to describe the sorrow we feel at Shirley's passing and our thoughts are with her husband and her entire family.
