Gloria Shean - Saints Spirit of Philanthropy Award
Mrs. Shean grew up on a farm in Illinois as one of the oldest of several siblings. Gloria spent her life helping others, be it her brothers and sisters or the animals on the farm, she was always lending a hand. Following high school graduation, she attended a state college where she felt a bit overwhelmed. Shortly after, she transferred to Presentation College where the smaller class sizes suited her and she thrived academically. She went on to graduate from Presentation College with an Associates of Science in Nursing in 1975. Her career as an operating room nurse spanned 58 years – 28 years in the Air Force (10 active duty and 18 Reserves - almost entirely at Wilford Hall at Lackland AFB, Texas) and 30 years at the Audie Murphy VA Hospital in San Antonio, TX. In 1990, Gloria married Greg Shean.
