Jul 27, 1923 - Oct 10, 2012
Peacefully, with her family by her side, Shirley Carmichael passed away on October 10, 2012 at the age of 89 years.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband and best friend of 64 years, Lorne; her children; Don, Judy, Deb (Al), Cathy (Terry), grandchildren, Sadie, Sam (Sarah), Lindsay, Surya and great grandchildren Payden and Owen, numerous friends and extended family. Mom is survived by her brother Peter Fournier (Maureen), sisters Noreen Bailey, Camille Robinson (Robbie).
Mom raised the family during the 50's and 60's in Winnipeg MB. She worked in retails sales for Sears for over 2o years and wore her retirement necklace deservedly and proudly. After moving to the West Coast/Tsawwassen in 1994 she volunteered at Delta Hospice Thrift Store and faithfully showed up every Wednesday.
Affectionately known to many as Granny, her 'one-liners' and great spirit for life were dearly appreciated and will be sorely missed. She will be remembered for her genuine kindness and generosity.......a truly gentle soul.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to the staff at Delta/ Ladner Hospital in the ER department for the compassion and care extended to Mom.
In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Delta Hospice Society, 4631 Clarence Taylor Drive, Delta BC, V4K 4L8
