Shirley Ethel Jackson

November 25, 1935 - July 6, 2024

Loving wife and best friend for 70 years to the late Allan Jackson. Devoted mother to Keith (Sandy) Cobourg
and Susan (the late John) Barrie. Nan to Sherry (Chris) Belleville, Jason (Carla) Sudbury, Joshua, Sudbury,
Heather (Len) Innisfil and Kristal, Barrie. Great nanny to 8 great grandchildren: Alysha, Georgina, Thomas, Cera, William, Aislynn, Bryce, and Kyleigh.

Shirley and Allan met as teenagers and embraced on a life together. They started in Toronto then moved to Tottenham where they quickly became part of the community. They enjoyed travelling, volunteering bowling and housed various pets, but most of all loved their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Anyone who knew Shirley knows she always had snacks and treats for everyone who came to visit but secretly she enjoyed sharing them with her furry friends. Shirley’s folk art was outstanding and she looked forward to annual craft shows to be able to share them with others. Everyone knew there was always room at the Jackson’s Bed and Breakfast.
The family would like to thank the staff at Roseglen Village, the nurses at NHH rehab department, nurse practitioner Dimitri, and the palliative care staff Dr. Mulé, nurse Karen and nurse Colin.
In lieu of flowers the family would like you to enjoy your favourite activity and remember Shirley who had a full, happy and long life.
Cremation has taken place and a small (casual) family and friends celebration of life will take place Saturday, July 13 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King Street East, Cobourg.

MESSAGES OF CONDOLENCE / DONATIONS

Lynda Hastings - July 13, 2024

To Shirley's Family: Just seeing Shirley's picture brings back fond memories of this special lady. I had the pleasure of taking folk art lessons from her. She was so patient with this non artistic painter :) It was always fun to have her as a vendor at our church, Rich Hill United, for our craft & bake sales. We admired her talent. Every time I drive past the "house on the hill", memories of her flood my mind. Shirley will always hold a warm place in our hearts. May you hold your special memories close in your hearts as well.

Dear Keith, Susan and families: It will be no time until your mom, grandmother awakes from sleep in a beautiful paradise where there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more mourning and no more death right here on earth. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 We will be together again forever.
