In memory of
Shirley Delores Cain
Shirley Delores Cain Shirley Delores Cain passed away peacefully into the arms of her Lord surrounded by her loving family on May 12th, 2020. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1923 to Edward and Ruth McGlasson. Six years later the family welcomed her only siblings Eddie who would become her biggest supporter and antagonist. Growing up she enjoyed swimming, biking, and ice cream parlor visits with her lifelong friend Ginny Conn. Shirley married Burleigh Edgar and they had a daughter Karon prior to his deployment in WWII in which he perished in action over France. She remarried several years later and welcomed four more children into her loving home. Along with her husband George Sullivan they reared their five children in the rural community of O'Fallon, Missouri. Shirley's family attended St. Paul Parish with Christmas midnight mass a yearly highlight along with picnics, donkey ball games and small town community spirit. The St. Louis Opera, Cardinals baseball, Dardenne Country Club and numerous family outings kept Shirley in constant motion. It was a special time in her life but the world had too much for her to experience. In 1976 she moved to Dana Point, California and always knew that California would be her final home. Shirley moved to Saudi Arabia two years later and this became her springboard to seeing the world. While living abroad she travelled around the world, easily making friends and learning new cultures. On calls home her children would always ask "where are you now mom?" Her children loved her travel stories and the insights that she shared. Family members would visit her in Spain at her retreat villa on the Costa Del Sol. During this period Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, California became her stateside residence. Her desert home became the family center for holidays, birthdays, and family gatherings. Shirley became "Nan" to her many grandchildren. Her radiant smile could light up a room and little Schatze was always by her side. She loved her numerous desert friends and their social settings. Shirley was a devout Catholic and attended both Sacred Heart and St. Louis Catholic Church in the desert. Shirley's family would like to thank Hospice along with her personal caregivers for their tireless support over the years. Shirley is survived by her children Karon Berry, Don Sullivan, Richard Sullivan (Kara), Kathleen Sullivan and Peggy McCain (Bob), 8 grandchildren and 10.5 great grandchildren, Cousin Alan DeFend (Marcia). In honor of Shirley Cain, raise a glass, tell some fond stories, and toast a life well lived. Donations in Shirley's memory can be made to the St. Junipero Serra House of Formation. 12725 Oriole Ave., Grand Terrace, CA 92313. (909) 783-0260. A service will be scheduled at a later date due to Covid-19.
