Mary Virginia Short

Mary Short turned helping disabled into art form

Mary Virginia Short saw beauty in the faces of the people with developmental disabilities whom she spent a lifetime nurturing.

The founder of the Short Centers to help disabled people in Sacramento and Stockton died of pneumonia Thanksgiving Day at the UC Davis Medical Center. She was 73.

Her husband, retired state Sen. Alan Short, said his wife started her first art program for the disabled 25 years ago with three teachers and six students.

"She had found her life's work," he said. "She gave it everything she had."

Now, more than 350 people with developmental disabilities participate in seven programs, which include three Short Centers and others that offer assisted living, housing, employment and education.

Mrs. Short founded Developmental Disabilities Service Organizations, the nonprofit organization that operates the programs.

A former lobbyist, she used her political skills to raise the money for the programs, but she gave her heart to her students.

"She touched lives. She did it with a grace, an ability and a love that's absolutely remarkable," said Alan Short.

She viewed the students as her own, he said. She took the square dancers and acting students to other states to participate in programs. Many stopped in the middle of their artwork to say hello to her as she walked by.

She had no relatives or close friends who made her aware of issues facing the developmentally disabled, but her husband said she knew adversity while growing up.

Mrs. Short was born Aug. 20, 1928, in Princeton, Mo., and started working at age 13, digging potatoes. She became an airline hostess at 18, worked as a lobbyist and then was hired to work in Short's Senate office before marrying him in 1969.

She had a keen interest in her husband's legislation including the landmark Short-Doyle Act and other mental health legislation. Representing Sacramento and San Joaquin counties for 22 years, he also sponsored legislation to provide free public education to the disabled.

Mrs. Short founded the "Very Special Art Show," a statewide show that featured the creations of developmentally disabled people for 25 years.

Amy Nishimura, the organization's chief executive officer, said Mrs. Short saw qualities in the faces of the developmentally disabled that others didn't see.

"Their honesty is what captured her," she said.

Mrs. Short even tried to photograph that honesty. She went to Yosemite National Park and took photo lessons from Ansel Adams. Her husband said he came home one day and found a carpenter building a darkroom in their home.

Mrs. Short photographed the athletes at the Special Olympics and started photography classes for the Short Center students.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Short is survived by her brother, Sherman Hill of Kansas City, Mo.; and her adopted daughter, Bonnie Ritchie of Sonora.

A celebration of her life will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at the school she helped purchase for the Sacramento Short Center at 2331 St. Marks Way.

Donations may be made in her honor to the Mary Short/NEA Endowment Fund, Arts for Persons with Developmental Disabilities, or the Alan Short Center, DDSO Foundation, 8912 Volunteer Lane, Suite 210, Sacramento, CA 95826.
