Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Shirley had many roles throughout her life. For our family, with her ever present smile, she filled that of employee in several capacities within the hospitality area, was babysitter to our first little ones, and the most cherished – a warm, generous friend to us all.
Please accept our condolences as we share in your loss through our thoughts and prayers. She will be fondly missed.

To the family of uncle Otto and aunt Shirley: I would like to pass on our condolences. Aunt Shirley was a remarkable lady and I always had a great time with her. With the business of our lives and living at the other end of the world, we did not see enough of the family. I saw Yolanda in St. Paul some years ago and had a great but brief visit, but have not managed to connect with Sheldon though I have tried many times. Debbie is in BC too but still a long ways off. I see we are in need of another family reunion. If you ever get to Vancouver island you are always welcome. Brian, Helen, Sigrid & Aasta
