Shirley LaMear, one of the founding organizers of MOHJO, passed away from pancreatic cancer in July, 2018. Her years of experience as a horse show mom were invaluable in building a competitor friendly structure for the new organization. Shirley served as the first point secretary, and later as treasurer. She worked the details to ensure every one of the champions appeared in the March edition of the Chronicle of the Horse (the horse show issue), the only opportunity to appear in the magazine for many members. Shirley was an enthusiastic supporter of MOHJO, and will be missed by all who knew her.
