Ranald and Vera Shean were highly respected musicians and teachers in Edmonton. They were determined that the young people they taught should not miss out on opportunities to expand their musical abilities and would often help students with travel or tuition. Ranald passed away in 1997; Vera in 2005. Both Ranald and Vera are members of the City's Cultural Hall of Fame.
