Patricia S. McMeen, née Shaw, died Sunday, May 24, 2009, at her home. She was born at Hamm-ond, Ind., on Dec-ember 7, 1947 to Rollie Shaw and Virginia S. Shaw. Pat was reared at Trigg County and Calloway County, graduated from Murray State University, and the School of Law at Southern Illinois University.

Pat devoted herself to a variety of civic activities for the City of Herrin including the Herrin Chamber of Commerce and the Herrin Rotary Club. She was also a student of history throughout her life. Her range of knowledge spanned a spectrum from the earliest family histories of western Kentucky to current world events. She never ceased learning.
