GILLELAND, Shirley Irene, passed away September 15, 1998. Our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, Shirley Irene Gilleland, born December twenty third, 1920 in Chicago, Illinois, is at this moment in time, passing beyond, into another moment in time, She will be with Hugh Edward, her husband, and her own special Angel, Wendy, for eternity. As Beverly says…”our love for Shirley goes way beyond the simple word…and into a magical and wonderful place for which there are no words to describe.” She is everything to everybody. She has, only recently, realized what a burden it has been for her, for all of her years. The weight had, only now, begun to become heavy on her, in her eldest of years. A more powerful, generous, energetic and compassionate person would be difficult to find. She is a semanticist, always correcting our grammar. The death of her eldest son, Gilly, was devastating to her and yet, she continued to absorb the pains of the world while continuing to raise a family, keep a house, and hold down the business full time. She is gorgeous to this day. For a short woman, she has the longest legs you have ever seen. She is the toughest woman we have ever known and to have a little of her toughness right now would be wonderful to have, but difficult to achieve. Like Chris said, as were were reminiscing… ”she was always at the head of the conga line.” And she was indeed, with all of us behind her, and happy to be there. We will all miss her, with our individual thoughts and memories, and all of us, for her magic. Shirley’s body left us at 8:05 a.m., Tuesday, September 15th, 1998. We, her family and her multitude of friends, will miss her, but will always have her magic in our very souls. Shirley is preceded in death by her eldest son, Hugh Edward Gilleland, III and her husband, Hugh Edward, Jr. Her surviving sister is Lorene Lieske of Glendale, Arizona. Her surviving children are: sons, Michael, Christopher, Kerry and Jesse; and daughter, Suzan; grandchildren, Justina, Hugh Edward IV, Alyssa, Megan and Kayla; daughters-in-law, Laura and Nancy.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
