Born in Melbourne, Australia, April 11, 1932, Shirley immigrated to Canada in 1955 and lived in Vancouver – mostly in the West End – until her death at St. Paul’s Hospital on April 10, 2010. She was an energetic and caring person, loyal and hardworking, and much respected by all who knew her. Special thanks to all the staff of the Palliative Care Unit at St. Pauls where Shirley spent her last days. We will miss you Shirley. A gathering to celebrate her life will be held on Saturday, April 17 at 11:A.M. in the lobby of Carmen Manor, 1516 Davie St., Vancouver.” [includes photograph].
