In Loving Memory of Shirley Moore

The family announce with great sadness that Shirley Moore passed away peacefully on May 31, 2021 at Mackenzie Health Nursing Home. She was born in Copper Cliff, Ontario on May 17, 1927 to James and Dora (Cashmore) Hamilton. Loving wife of many years to Ralph Moore (deceased). Loving Mother to Linda Kelly (Terry), Barb Barrowman (Jim), Judy Moore Vey (Fraser), Jeff Moore (Dorothy).

Very loving Grandma to Kevin Kelly (Bettina), Kirstin Legros, Brett Barrowman (Kendal), Ryan Barrowman (Peter), Andrew Vey, Graham Vey (Gracee), Kyle Moore (Erica), Eric Moore (Kristen).

Very, very loving Great Grandmother to Ava, Bray, Jack, Josh, Jordan, Olivia, and Grace.

Survived by sister Audrey (Hamilton) Bell and Sister-in-law Joan Hamilton. Predeceased by James Hamilton, Allan Bell, Jim and Marion (Hamilton) Bonner.

Shirley was employed at North York Board of Education for thirty happy years.

She grew up and resided in Willowdale most of her life.

Shirley and husband Ralph built a cottage on Sparrow Lake where many wonderful memories were created for family and friends.

Shirley lived an incredible life of 94 years. She had health challenges the last year, but prior to that she was totally independent and active. That is a true gift. Her legacy is her large, active family of which she was very, very proud.

Shirley also attended the Toronto Film Festival every year and was pictured with several famous actors. She attended until 91 years young.

Special thanks for the wonderful care by the guardian angels at Mackenzie Health Long Term Care. Approximately 30 staff members lined up to pay their final respects to Mom. This certainly was a wonderful tribute to Shirley.

Also, a special thanks to the staff at Canterbury Place Retirement Home for the care provided.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Heart and Stroke Foundation, Mackenzie Health Foundation

Our dear Auntie Shirley, a true legend, always keeping things organized and on time for her family, even at the cottage. When visiting us at the island, she'd suddenly say "time to go everyone, I don't want to have dinner late". She was never shy to speak her mind, and always let you know how she felt, but in a kind way.
Auntie Shirley was always very aware of her appearance, even at the cottage. I still remember, from teenage years at the cottage, her wearing her pearls with her turquoise tracksuit and her hair done perfectly.
Growing up, we were always welcome at the Moore's and usually homemade cookies were just coming out of the oven. Her family and extended family were very special to her, and we will always remember our Christmas Eves at Auntie Shirley's and Uncle Ralph's, such a tradition.
We were so happy for her to finally have great grandchildren and that she was able to meet them. Such a happy time for her.
We will miss you my dear Auntie Shirley. Your cottage will never be the same without you there, but we know that you'll be keeping an eye on everyone!!
Love Nancy (Bell/Hunt)

My mom Morna Cashmore (My dad Allan was Aunt Dora’s brother), stayed in touch with both Shirley and Audrey.
I’m glad to hear that Shirley lived a full life.
Condolences to Shirley’s family.

Grandma Shirley, as we fondly called her, was a special lady and we were very blessed to have come to know her better over the last few years. We were so happy to have been afforded the honour of becoming family. She will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Grandma Shirley…we love you! 🙏🏻❤️

My sincere condolences to all the Moore family. I met Judy in 1980 and Shirley a year or two later. I always enjoyed spending time with all of the Moore clan and loved watching all of Shirley's grandkids grow into the wonderful adults they are now. I have shared many memorable happy times with Shirley and her children in Toronto, Florida and of course Sparrow Lake.
Shirley, you have left a legacy of four great children who I know will miss you terribly but will keep your memory alive.
RIP Mrs. Moore I will miss you as well. ❤

I will always remember Shirley for her immense kindness, and for bringing joy to those around her. Words cannot describe the amount of love that she had for her family and friends. She will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. The entire Moore family remains within my thoughts and prayers.

To all of you
Shirley was a truly amazing woman. She had a love for life, all of her family and friends. From the first time I met her, she made me feel special. She had an amazing sense of humour, loved to tease her grandkids especially, never said no to whatever activity was going on. The special 4 generations of Moore's carry on that love and laughter. I will miss her but I will cherish all of the memories, that I have of her, in my heart always.
Love Di
