Shirley’s proudest accomplishments in life was to say she was 5th generation head of the family.  You could often find her enjoying a game of cards or watching her favourite TV shows and birds outside her window.  Shirley had her regular daily chats on the phone.  The most cherished thing in life was the love and time spent with her family.

Funeral Service will take place in Bristol Presbyterian Church, Bristol, Quebec at a later date.
