One donor's story: Shirley Mitchell

  • Monticello
  • Eyes
  • Living Donor: 2009

Shirley (Sam) was a dedicated employee (Honeywell and Integras), devoted friend, loving aunt, cherished sister and awesome daughter.

Family and friends were her priorities.  If you ever needed anything she was ready to help in any way she could.  Her nieces and nephews were her pride and joy.  Her dog, Max, her companion until his death.

Sam endured the trials of kidney disease from her early 20’s.  After five years of dialysis she received a kidney transplant in 2007, but the damage had been done and the kidney rejected.  She never let the disease define her and is greatly missed.
