Shirley was our family’s angel at St Peter’s Nursing Home. Her kindness and sweetness to my mom was such a gift to all of us while my mom was there. She made us all feel like her extended family and we will be eternally grateful for having her in our lives. Our hearts go out to her family. Hopefully all your memories will always keep warm smiles in your hearts as they are in ours.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. I worked for many years with Shirley at Equifax. We were all like family. I have so many fond memories of those years. She was always full of fun and I was proud to call her a friend. My thoughts and prayers to Terina, Brian and Debbie and her entire family at this time. She will be missed.
