Shirley Anne Barnes

December 14, 1941February 12, 2021

Passed away suddenly on February 12, 2021 in London, Ontario. Born in London, Ontario December 14th, 1941. Daughter to Chester and Beatrice Graham. She was a strong-willed and feisty child that grew to be a loving wife to her husband, Dave. Shirley worked for many years at Germaines Dry Cleaners and even after moving on to work at a publishing company and going back to school later in life to become a secretary, she could proudly get that stain out of anything! She loved her many birdfeeders and growing flowers that would attract the hummingbirds in the summer. Shirley had a strong love towards all dogs, but especially the family puppies. She was looking forward to the arrival of her first great grandchild due to arrive this summer. Predeceased by her husband, David (2008), son Wayne (1961) and son-in-law Dave (1999). Survived by daughters Cathy and Cheryl and granddaughters Ashley (Josh), Michelle and Christina. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private funeral service will be held by invitation only, with cremation to follow and final interment of ashes at Woodland Cemetery. Please consider making a donation in Shirley's memory to Heart and Stroke Foundation, Humane Society or Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Sorry to hear about this sudden loss I'm definitely shocked I will miss the phone calls for when she needed her furnace maintenance done and all the talks about my Dad, uncle Dave and Harold xoxo

Shirley was my sister-in-law until my divorce, but she always considered me her sister-in-law, and more than that we were (family) and friends until the day she passed. I was looking forward to seeing Shirley the next time I was coming to London, but sadly I will never have the chance to sit down to a cup of tea and a chat with her again. I love you Shirley and I will miss you terribly.

Shirley was my sister, the oldest of three children to Beatrice and Chester Graham. We were always close until my divorce, when everyone turned against me. I loved my sister then and still do and will miss her dearly. Until we meet again.
Your baby brother Ken
Rest in Peace!
