Shirley West, a former Foursquare missionary and president of United Foursquare Women, went to be with the Lord on April 5, 2013. She was 83 years old.

Her husband and fellow missionary, Bill, passed away in 2007. The duo served together in the Philippines from 1970–1975, serving the local people well.

Shirley also served as a president of United Foursquare Women (later renamed Foursquare Women’s International) from 1985–1991, where she was called “Not a dreamer, but a leader.” She later received an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from The Foursquare Church.

Before being called to the Philippines, she served at Foursquare churches in North Hollywood, Calif., North Little Rock, Ark., and Sylacauga, Ark. After returning to the U.S., she served at the Foursquare church in Burbank, Calif.

Shirley’s son, Billy, as well as her parents, are also with the Lord. She is survived by her brother Curtis Correll Jr. (Marcene), son Rick West (Michelle) and daughter Vickie Damarjian (Roy), as well as her grandchildren Tori West, Andrew West and Melissa Damarjian.
