Memorial
Till McPherron was a loving and dedicated wife and mother of 3. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri to Ellen and Vince Hagerty, and had an older sister, Judy. Till attended Lindenwood College and Arizona State University, graduating with a degree in English. She was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.

Tillie married Larry McPherron in 1959, and together they had 3 children. They resided in Prairie Village Kansas for over 40 years, creating a supportive and nurturing environment for their family.

Tillie loved nature and animals. Her home was always full of a variety of house pets, and rescued creatures. She enjoyed tending to her garden, and writing short stories and poetry.

Till was a kind and gentle woman. She opened her house to everyone, always making them feel warm and welcomed. She truly enjoyed hearing what was happening in the life of her friends, always listening with an empathetic ear.

She will be deeply missed by her children, who were so fortunate to experience the thoughtful, enduring and unconditional love of their mother throughout their lives.

In the l950's, I worked with Till as reporters for United Press in the Kansas City bureau. We both were in our early 20's and she already a skilled newswoman. More important, she was as nice as could be. I regret her passing. --Bill Clark, Murfreesboro, TN.

I have many good memories of Tillie going back to the University of Arizona, where she and I were roommates. I particularly remember Tillie and Larry's visit to visit me and my husband Bill out West. We took a wonderful trip to Lake Powell (Arizona) and the Grand Canyon. We will miss both she and Larry

I always loved your mom and dad and remember the fun, if scary times, we had with your family visiting Haunted Houses at Halloween under the Broadway Bridge in downtown Kansas City. Bobby, Julie and I send our love to all of you.

Till was a dedicated volunteer at Literacy Kansas City from 1998-2002. She and her student, Mable, worked together for over 200 hours. In that time, Mable advanced through four books in our program. Till was always proud of her student's accomplishments, and the relationship that they built helped Mable gain confidence in herself and her skills. Till was a kind and caring mentor to her student. She and Mable met at our office twice weekly, and no matter what type of day she was having, she always came to tutor with a smile. Her cheerfulness lit up the office, and she and Mable seemed to have so much fun together. I remember having to 'shush' them on more than one occasion because their laughter was so loud! But I couldn't help walking away with a smile myself, because you could tell they were having such a great time learning. I missed seeing Till when she had to drop out of the program, and I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. She was a dedicated and beloved volunteer, and we miss her very much.
