My deepest condolences to all of the family. Shirley was a unique lady who loved life and appreciated the good times. I remember her as a strong quiet person who was very creative and freely shared her gifts and talents with others. Shirley will be greatly missed especially by those of us who had the good fortune to call her friend. Rest In Peace dear friend! From Gertrude (Gert) and Beverley Johnson

Several times, at the Somme Legion where Shirley associated with friends, helped decorate for events and generally was friendly and thoughtful to regular attendees, she brought flowers or cards to give to those she regarded highly. This thoughtfulness was reciprocal and, on our most recent meeting, we gave her a lovely vase of flowers in a bouquet. She loved it! Shirley was a very warm and loving person, always mindful of others. She will be sorely missed!
With love, Carol & Jack Whittle
