Spent the beginning of my summers with Shirleyand Les and Bob. I still laugh when I think about bed time. I can hear her say do you have to tinkel before bed. There place was the start of four places I would stay for summer vacation. Can here her run down the hall banging on the doors saying Santa was here..Then uncle Les with the blinding lights and camera going. Have great memories with the Burgs as my mom called them. Going to miss you auntie 💔💋

Aunt Shirley was just a sweet soul. My dad, Glenn had a special friendship in their latter years and she missed him terribly after he passed. I have many memories of Aunt Shirley but her story of being sent with my dad (11 and 9yrs old) by train by themselves with a sign around their necks (name, home address and destination) from Windsor to their Aunts in St. Catherine’s for a visit to give my Grandma a break after the birth of her 10th child! Times were so simple then but it still is hard to believe, they returned home the same way. Being part of a 10 children family there were many stories told of those days. Being a niece to the 10 Aunts and Uncles was a wonderful way to grow up. I am sure there is a large party of family embracing Aunt Shirley again in heaven.
