Shirley Lee Ladd September 7, 1989 - July 28, 2012

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

A friend of mine, Shirley, was hiking Precipice Trail in Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine. Despite a valiant rescues by 39+ volunteers and paid services, including Acadia National Park Forest Service, Mount Island Search and Rescue, Bar Harbor Fire Department, Lifeflight plus a number of volunteers, an effort lasting over 6 hours. She was pronounced dead at Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) in Bangor, Maine at 5pm.
Shirley was hiking with a friend, approximately 3/4 of the way up the trail and having just finished the most difficult part, fell on a rock shelf about 120 feet to the trail, just missing a passing hiker.
Shirlz was going to graduate in May, and was a friend to a large number of people-- even more so she was kind to everyone and was constantly trying to make people smile. She wasn't happy until everyone else was. We are missing a truly great, unique and interesting friend, beautiful inside and out. She will be missed and loved in our hearts and minds.

  Thank you both, I'm sorry for hers. It's very difficult to process, but her funeral will be this Saturday and that will bring some closure. Though I am having difficulties with the fact that her Funeral is August 11th (she was 22) and my grandma's 92nd birthday is the 12th. I am very happy to have my grandma, but I'll be sad from the events preceding. Just dealing with it one day at a time.
