Shirley Arany passed away shortly after midnight at Agape Hospice in Calgary, AB on Saturday, March 2, 2013 after a short battle with liver cancer. Shirley was the fourth daughter of eight children born to Cora and Ernst Hemm in Middle Lake, SK. She met and was married to her husband of 49 years, Steve on February 10, 1964. They then moved to his family farm near St. Brieux, SK and started their family. They became Alberta bound in the summer of 1972 with a move to Calgary. Shirley began her 37 year career with Canada Post in 1975. Never a person to rest, Shirley also began preparing taxes with H&R Block in 1989 continuing until December, 2012. She officially retired from Canada Post in January, 2012. Her one get- away was spending time at their trailer at Carefree Resort in the summers. Shirley found much happiness in her work both at the post office and H&R Block and took great joy in the loyalty of customers and co-workers. Shirley is survived by her husband Steve; three daughters Donna, Cheryl, Amanda and grandson Miika.
