In Loving Tribute To Shirley Magidson, 1925-2008

PSR-LA is saddened by the news that our long-time friend and board member Shirley Magidson passed away on June 26th after a long illness. We will miss her kindness, loyalty, generosity, and the wonderful wry sense of humor she brought to matters both large and small. PSR-LA was fortunate to celebrate Shirley’s accomplishments last year when we honored her with our 2007 Healing the Planet Award.
