Westlynn Paige Shearer, infant daughter of Caitlin N. Stevinson and Ronnie C. Shearer of Orrick, was born on October 26, 2017 at Saint Luke’s Hospital on the Plaza in Kansas City, Mo. Westlynn lived for eight hours before she was taken by the angels to her heavenly home. Her twin brother was born almost a week later and it is looking like he will survive, but has a long road ahead of him.
