Senior of the Week:	Shirley McCandless

The Newnan Times-Herald

I am nominating my mom, Shirley McCandless. She is retired and volunteers her time. She was Joey’s – from Joey’s Toy Box – homebound teacher. He passed away from cancer about 10 years ago. My mom literally does nothing with her time for herself. She is a very devoted grandmother who sees her grandchildren and watches them constantly and is extremely involved in Joey’s Toy Box. They deliver toys to hospitals, put on brunches in his memory and take care of families of children facing such a terrible battle.
