Shirley my soul sister
Caring, sharing, generous, very inquisitive, and a great love for her family. Shirley was the glue that kept all of us together. We shared a lot together as sisters over the years but the last few years together meant so much to me. Shirley helped me so much!!! We both are believers of the spiritual world, meaning our souls do live on. So Shirley I will continue on my path sadly without you, knowing we will all be together again just like we always planned. My true love for you will never die.
Your Soul Sister Darlene

I was very blessed in my life to have you as my Sister, best friend, and soul mate. Our journey was very special and I wouldn't change anything. You were my rock. Your beautiful smile and kind and caring ways lighted up my life. Our time together was cut short but we will make up for that when we meet again. I know that you are now free from pain and all the stress. I hope you have all the happiness that the spiritual life has to offer.
I love you so much and will miss you everyday.

We were so sad to hear the shocking news of Shirley’s sudden passing and we’ll miss Shirley very much. Although we didn’t see her and John on a regular basis, we just picked up where we left off when we got together! She was so family oriented and thought the world of her grandchildren. Her smile and laughter were infectious and we so enjoyed her company. This photo was her last birthday lunch in between COVID lockdowns. Shirley, you’re with your angels and we know you’re at peace. With lots of love, Brenda and Gord

Shirley was my best friend and soul sister. I’m going to miss our lunch dates, our at least twice weekly hours long chats that we talked about everything and anything. Shirley was always so positive, upbeat and funny, we would always be laughing whether we were together or on the phone. The “Other Side” has truly gained a beautiful angel that will now watch over all of us. Until we meet again my beautiful soul sister and best friend, take it easy now, as you and I both know we’ll all be together again.
