SHIRLEY LOUISE MILTON (nee CARTER) December 16, 1929 July 11, 2006 Peacefully, on July 11, 2006 at the St. Boniface Hospital, Shirley Milton, with her children by her side, passed away at the age of 76 after a short battle with cancer. Shirley was predeceased by her parents, Charles Gregory and Edith Carter, daughter Laura, dear brother and mentor Howard Carter, brother Maurice Carter, husband Byron Milton, dear friend, Cliff Pink, and her cherished dog, Barney. Shirley will be lovingly remembered by her children, Christopher (Cindy) and their children, Tiffany (Ken) and Paul; Claudia (Albert) and their children, Stephanie, Kayla, Richard, Julia and Jonathan; and Paul (Maria) and his daughter, Quinn. She is also survived by her brothers, John (Margaret) Carter and Lionel (Monica) Carter; sisters-in-law, Marnie Carter and Sheran Carter; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins. Shirley was passionate about animals, plants, gardening (always had flowers in her house), entertaining friends and family, and was fiercely proud of her independence. Living in Fort Garry most of her life, she was active in the community, making loving and supportive friends who became part of the family. Always involved, she sat on the board of Manitoba Blue Cross, volunteered with the Junior League, the Fort Garry Community Club, the Humane Society, the Heart Stroke Foundation and was tirelessly involved in politics at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels. As well she enjoyed many years of association with HMCS Chippewa. An ardent supporter of her loved ones' activities, she was also an avid bridge-player, a long-time curler (once throwing lead on an 8-ender) and loved working her way through a crossword puzzle. She spent many happy summers at the Lake of the Woods with her family and friends, but particularly cherished any time spent at Star Lake. The family would like to express gratitude to the staff in the St. Boniface Palliative Care unit for their kind and compassionate care of our Mom. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, July 17 at Thompson In the Park . Flowers are gratefully declined; in lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Humane Society or a charity of your choice.
