  • My deepest condolences to all of Shirley's family and friends. Shirley was my team leader at CRA for a few years. She brought a light to an otherwise mundane workplace. Always cheerful and so kind and understanding. She went above and beyond to ensure a real sense of team and made every day so much more pleasant than it would have been without her. Always thought to give out individual cards for birthdays Christmas etc. You knew she really cared about all of her team. So sad to hear of her passing and I know she will be missed by all that had the privilege of knowing her. - Posted by: Barry Guindon (Co-worker) on: May 04, 2022

  • Auntie Vera, Deb, Joey, Shirley's children and grandchildren, I am so shocked and grieved to learn of Shirley's untimely passing. I had always hoped that she and I would reconnect to actually meet again because we had not seen each other in years with our lives having taken different paths. We hung out together as kids and in our youth at Sarto, MB, where she would visit her maternal grandparents Sophie and John Boitson, sister to my maternal grandfather Peter Osadchuk. I had coerced her into joining me as a performer in an amateur musical theatre group in the late 60s. Then she married and began raising a family and our talks became less frequent. I last spoke with her when we discussed the replacement of our great-grandmother's old original headstone at Sarto a few years ago and again when her dad and then her husband passed away. It was so nice to catch up with her on those occasions. She left us much too soon as she had so much more living to do! I always think of your entire family when I tend to Shirley's baby sister Peggy's grave at Sarto each spring. I learned to do this from my own mom as she looked after Peggy's resting place until she left us. (It is a most interesting coincidence that my mom was born on April 18 and passed away on May 26, the reverse dates of Shirley's life but different years.) I hope each of you finds peace in the wonderful memories you have of dear Shirley who will have good company in heaven with Bruce and Bev and many other loved ones like her Baba Sophie who had always been so very close to her eldest granddaughter! Deepest condolences and much love to each one of you, cousin Helen Feniuk - Posted by: Helen Feniuk (Second cousin) on: Apr 26, 2022

  • We send our love and condolences to the children and grandchildren. We have such fond, fun memories of our younger years spent with Shirley and Bruce. Those baseball trips were legendary! Again, so sorry for your loss. Clif and Linda Evans - Posted by: Clif & Linda Evans (family) on: Apr 26, 2022

  • We didn't meet Shirley until Bruce's funeral. Our deepest sympathy to all her loved ones. What a wonderful promise that one day we, as believers, will see Jesus and our loved ones! This is all that is eternal. For those of us who are older, the words in James 4:14 certainly are true; " whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away." Marg Wahl & husband Jerry Dennis - Posted by: Marg Wahl (Bruce's cousin) on: Apr 24, 2022

  • For my wonderful sister. I will miss you so much. All the joys and laughter we shared over the years will be remembered in my heart forever. Rest peacefully now. Love you so much, Deb - Posted by: Deborah Bircham (Sister) on: Apr 23, 2022
