Very sadden to hear about Shirley's passing. Shirley and I were co-workers for many years and kept in touch occasionally since her retirement. Not one year would pass where Shirley would not remember to send me a Birthday or Holiday card. She was a very special lady. Our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. May she RIP.

Shirley was my legal assistant for more than 20 years in both Washington, D.C. and Miami, FL before she retired. A wonderful person, a great and close friend to me, my wife Jo, and our family and a dedicated and outstanding colleague through all of the years we were together. We stayed in touch by phone and correspondence, but alas, not in person since her retirement. We will all miss her very much, but know there is a special place in heaven for such a warm, generous and thoughtful person.

We will miss Aunt Shirley; many memories over the years of her loving kindness, fun and laughter. We visited her in Miami and on the Cape and were always treated like royalty. She was a special aunt and friend.

Although Aunt Shirley was separated from us by miles; I recall the visits she made to New Brunswick when I was young and living in the homestead. She was dear to us all and we loved to see her come. I got to spend a little more time with her on her last visit in 2014 (photo is from that visit) I hadn't realized she had gone to Calgary Alberta after High School. So interesting to listen to her stories. What a dear lady. We will miss her !
Uncle Vince and family my deepest condolences to you all.
