I met Shirley through my Aunt Mary. She was a wonderful friend and help to my Aunt during her lifetime. Especially as Mary was blind. My Aunt recently passed away July 31st. She was heartbroken at the news of her friend's passing. I enjoyed being with the three girls Mae, Shirley and Mary what a wonderful relationship they had. Shirley was a true gem loyal to her friends and had such a loving and giving nature . I am sure Mary and Shirley are together again in heaven. She will be missed.

Shirley (aka Auntie Shoulders) will be deeply missed at our holiday gatherings, birthday parties and barbeques. Every visit was fun and interesting and her carefully crafted salads were always a hit. She was such a cheery person who loved nothing more than watching the kids play on a hot summer day. Shirley was truly a part of the family and will forever be in our hearts. - Posted by: The Morgan's (a second family) on: Jul 30, 2020
Shirley was a good friend and great neighbor. She always had a lovely smile and was interested in what you were doing. As kids she always made us special Halloween treats and then did the same for my kids when I moved back to the street to raise my family. She was a kind soul and will be greatly missed in the neighborhood. Deepest Condolences to her close friends and relatives. - Posted by: Joy Denyer (Bohemier) (Neighbor and friend) on: Jul 30, 2020

It was my privilege to have known Shirley. I worked with her for a number of years and always felt uplifted in her presence. I never heard Shirley say a negative thing about anyone, and she was the type of person who had your back and was always encouraging if you were about to embark on something different and new. I was fortunate to experience her sense of humour, her kindness , gentleness, and wisdom. Rest In Peace my friend ❤️ - Posted by: Chris Main (Friend ) on: Jul 18, 2020
Growing up, our family lived across the street from Shirley on Oakleigh Place. She was my piano teacher for about seven years. I knew her Mom also. My sisters and brother visited her about a year ago. It was a wonderful afternoon visit and Shirley really appreciated it. She knew our family well. I called her at the beginning of the pandemic in March to see how she was doing. So sad she is gone. She was the last remaining original person residing on Oakleigh Place. Wonderful lady and we are all glad we visited her and spent time with her after so many years. - Posted by: Nancy (nee Moir) (Neighbour) on: Jul 11, 2020
