Shirley is survived by her husband, Bob, sons Ron and his wife, Tracey, Dean and his wife Valerie, and by grandchildren, Caitlin, Hayley, Claire, Hannah, and Allistair, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Shirley enjoyed her gardening, was an avid reader, collected Hummel and Swarovski figurines, and loved her grandchildren.
She was a three time cancer survivor, and if you see fit, please think of donating to the BC cancer agency or cystic fibrosis Canada.
