SHIRLEY ANN SEIDEL Accidentally, on Saturday, April 19, 2003 in the R.M. of Rosser, Shirley Ann Seidel, aged 58 years, beloved wife of Gary Seidel, of Woodlands, MB. Born June 6, 1944 in Winnipeg, Shirley grew up in Woodlands where she went to school. She graduated from the Misericordia Hospital where she received her nursing degree. She worked at the Winnipeg General Hospital in the Psychiatric Department. Her present position was with the Community Futures Partners of Manitoba. Surviving besides her husband Garry, her mother Blanche Malone, brother Ken (Dorothy), sister Joyce (Bruce) Thomas, brother-in-law Ted Seidel (Brenda), numerous nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her father Harry Malone. Her true love was being an entrepreneur. She was a tireless worker who spent many hours at her business, White Horse Emporium, in St. Francois Xavier. No challenge in life was too great for her to overcome, she accepted every challenge with enthusiasm and always com-pleted it. Shirley had a special love of animals and turned bare prairie at the cottage into a forest. Her four critters will really miss her, Sunny, Reo, Callie and Trinket. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, April 26 at 1:00 p.m. at White Horse Emporium, St. Francois Xavier. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter, 3062 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3K 0Y1. Shirley wrote a poem, "Remember Me." Remember Me Remember me more for what Ive done Than for all the things Ive said. For I am often like the raging sea, Imprinting on the distant shore. Words become my driving force To encourage one step more. I often failed to let you rest While we worked so hard to clear the way. No time to laugh and have some fun, Yet, my heart was close to yours each day. Ive always believed in you Beyond the strength of "us". I merely shared your flight And Im content to remain anonymous. If you should think of me Think not of the raging sea. Remember me more for what Ive done. Than for all the things Ive said. MacKenzie Funeral Home, Stonewall, in care of arrangements.
