She is survived by sons Jamie (Margaret) and Steve (Effie), her beloved grandchildren George, Maddy, Meagan, Lindsay and Kevin, and many nieces and nephews. She was the life of the party. She will be greatly missed. Shirley loved vacationing at Cook Bay, and a true whisperer, had a special relationship with animals of all kinds.

Upon retirement they enjoyed farm life in Whonnock and the camaraderie of Autumwood in Fort Langley before returning to West Van to be closer to family. Charismatic and outgoing, she made friends wherever she lived. The family wishes to thank her wonderful doctors, Paul Sugar and Richard Blackmore, as well as loving caregivers Rosemary, Cynthia, Cora and Maddy. There will be a celebration of Shirley's life on September 26 from 1 to 4 pm at 2309 Inglewood Ave in West Vancouver.
