SHIRLEY HAYNES (nee KERR) It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Shirley Haynes, age 73, on Thursday, March 16, 2000 at Victoria Hospital in Winnipeg. Shirley will be greatly missed by her loving husband Ken and by her children, Lary (Barb), Doug (Bobbie) of Biggar, SK, Glen (Tracey) of Kelowna, BC, Sheila (John) Grafton, Ian (Jo Ann) and her grandchildren, Lori (Ray) Hartung, Katie, Tara and Eric, Morgan, Madeleine and Julian, Hayley and Robyn and great-granddaughters, Jayde and Teale and by her sister Mickey (Clyde) Reid and brother John Kerr, many nieces, nephews, cousins, sisters- and brothers-in-law. Shirley was born in The Pas, Man., on October 16, 1926 to Fred and Helen Kerr. She trained as a stenographer, working in Winnipeg and Calgary. She married Ken Haynes in 1946. They lived in Alberta for eight years and then moved to The Pas where they raised their family. Shirley worked at The Pas Public Library for ten years, and earlier, served on the volunteer library board. At Westminster United Church, The Pas, she was a CGIT leader, taught Sunday School, was a member of UCW, sang alto in the choir and was an active member of many committees. Shirley served in all offices and as Worthy Matron in the Order of Eastern Star, with memberships in both The Pas and Selkirk branches. For many years she taught piano lessons and worked on Music Festival committees in The Pas. She sang in choirs in The Pas, Selkirk and in Winnipeg at Harrow United and in glee clubs and had been a member of Selkirks Senior Harmonicats. She loved gardening, travel and cooking good food for her family and friends. She loved going to their cottage at Clearwater Lake and to their small farm in the Carrot River Valley. She kept in touch with a vast number of friends by letter, phoning and visiting. She was proud of her Northern Manitoba roots and occasionally wrote local history articles for The Pas Herald. We loved her very much and will miss her always.
