In Memoriam: Shirlee Madow

In Memoriam: Shirlee Madow

We note with sorrow the passing on December 1 of a special CVEC member, Shirlee Madow, of Faribault. Shirlee was recognized at the annual membership meeting last May as the student who took the most courses (52) over the past 10 years—and now digging farther back to our 1997 beginning, we find a grand total of 73, far surpassing anyone else’s. Clearly the Elder Collegium was an important part of the last fifteen years of her life. She also served on the Board as our “Faribault representative” between 2008 and 2011. We will miss her presence.
