Her positive attitude, her Faith in God and sense of humour in the midst of suffering will always be a inspiration to us all. Take strength in knowing she is with her Heavenly Father, free from pain.

Shirley was so full of joy. Her smile and laughter was contagious. This kind gentle woman gave so much positive energy that so many enjoyed being in her company. She was an inspiration with the best can do attitude one could ever possess. Quite a legacy to leave to her family and friends.

I have many wonderful memories. Most recently at Camp Emmanuel in Lewisporte. We loved to gather in their room after the evening service to share in a cup of tea and slice of toast and of course side splitting laughs - even when we set off the fire alarm!

Thinking about you all at this time. Sending a big hug to Bill - her rock! Cherish her memory. It will always remain with you. My sincere condolences.
