SHIRLEY MONKMAN

SHIRLEY ANN MONKMAN (nee CAMPBELL) November 4, 1946 May 5, 2008 Peacefully on May 5, 2008, Shirley Ann Monkman passed away at Riverview Health Centre. Shirley was one of 10 children born in Norway House, Manitoba to Kitty and Charlie Campbell. Shirley is survived by husband Lawrence, son Darrell (Sung Hee) and daughter Cheryl and special friend Andrew; sisters, Frances (Jack) Queau, Kathleen Leary, Verna (Merv) McDonald, and brothers, Tom (Carol), Forbes, Don (Anne), Ed (Charlotte) and George (Sheila) Campbell. Shirley worked in the health care profession for over 20 years and recently retired from Deer Lodge Hospital. She was highly regarded and admired as an excellent health care professional by her co-workers and provided quality care and compassion to the patients that she worked with. Shirley was an especially nurturing individual and, as was her nature, cared for our father and grandfather in her home when he became ill. We thank Shirley and her family for the loving care they provided to Charlie. Throughout the years Shirley established a strong bond with her extended family, especially with the many nieces and nephews who all remember Aunty Shirley with great fondness and affection. She was a vital member of the family, opening her heart and home to extended family in times of celebration and need. Shirley was the link that encouraged family togetherness and communicated family news. We will all miss Shirley's laughter, positive approach to life and excellent humour. Viewing will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 8, 2008 at Gilbart Funeral Home, 309 Eveline Street, Selkirk, Manitoba, with funeral service to follow at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Shirley to CancerCare Manitoba. Gilbart Funeral Home in care of arrangements.

  • I don't know if Shirley ever knew how much she meant to me. She also had a saying that will always stay with me. "You and your husband, you're not like most white people!" Forever in my heart, Shirley.
