    Dear Shirley, I am so sad to see you leave us, however I know that you will be dancing with the angels. I will be forever grateful for your experience and guidance you taught in the general office. I truly respect you for your patience and support, as well as love that you extended to all of us. We worked hard and had lots of good times, along with endless birthday cakes and goodies you provided. Not only that, swapped recipes, had macrame and crocheting lessons in the coffee room. We shared our lives in amongst the filing cabinets. I will never forget you.
    Love, Dianne Popplewell

    Auntie Shirley, you were a wonderful warm hearted, hands on, giving lady. You did yourself, your family and your community proud. At 93 years of age, you were still working for your Church and your Lodges and happy in the Service. We will greatly miss your coffee and homemade baking, but mostly we will miss you.
    All our love, Gayle and Terry
