Aunt Shirl you will be missed so very much. You have always been there for all of us. Such a strong woman, so dedicated to family. There are so many memories for us to hold close. Your love of music, dancing, having little get aways here and there. You were always quick to enjoy a good story that made you laugh. I will always remember playing the piano with you playing your harmonica. You have lived a good life and have been surrounded with love right up to the time of your passing. What a gift you have been to us all. I send love to my Cousins Jan, Nicole & Tina. May blessings be with our family at this very sad time ❤

You were a wonderful Auntie. A pioneer, a wise woman, and so supportive of your family. A pillar in our community who loved to dance, laugh, visit, listen to your music whenever you could, and get away on a road trip whenever it presented itself. You saw so much in your lifetime and took it all in stride. You were a courageous woman, who backed down from nothing, nor anyone. You did it your way and will be dearly missed by so many. Love you Aunt Shirl...xoxoxox
