It is with broken hearts that we announce Shirley’s passing. She had an amazing presence that brought joy and happiness to many lives. She was an avid baker, seamstress, knitter and quilter. So many of us were fortunate to enjoy her many talents. Her famous treats will always be remembered, especially her banana bread, pineapple squares and short bread cookies. Shirley enjoyed these hobbies thoroughly, but as we all know, her greatest pleasure was sharing them with others. Passing these talents on to others also brought great joy to Shirley. Her latest student, Dylan, learning to knit in February of this year. We will continue to remember her beautiful smile and wonderful personality.
We miss you dearly.
At Shirley’s request there will be no visitation or service. A private family service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
