Shirley was born and raised in Owen Sound where she taught kindergarten for 35 years. She loved her job and touched many lives . She was known affectionately by many as Mother Goose. In her retirement she enjoyed playing golf, curling, bridge but what brought her the most joy was going on adventures and spending time with her sister. Her church and her faith were important to her. Shirley had a huge kind heart and was always doing things for others. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a smile that could light a room.
Many thanks to the Doctors and the staff of Lee Manor for their wonderful professional, kind, care and concern during Shirley”s stay there.
