Her children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren were everything to her as she was to them.

Shirley was survived by her daughter Darlene; granddaughters Renee (Bruce), and Kirsten (Chris); great-grandchildren, Joshua, Abigail, Madeleine and many nieces and nephews. Shirley is also survived by her partner of many years Ralph W Verge. Ralph's sons and their spouses, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many friends.

Hi... my name is Heather and I have been a long time friend of Colleen's. I met Shirley through Colleen when my Mother Eunice and I joined the dart league many years ago, unfortunately we only stayed for one season. Shirley was very friendly making us newcomers feel very welcome. She was full of life , laughter, and good times. I do remember her great style - she always wore the stylist capri's and with the best shoes/sandles ever! It was a treat every week to see how she was dressed - Mr.Simpson Sears or Mr. Hudson Bay would have been proud! May she rest in peace!
