Shirley was an active member of the Windsor West Community Centre. (1980-1994). Windsor Housing Action Group, Alternative Energy Council of Ontario. She also worked as a craft /ceramics teacher and program coordinator for the former Centres for Seniors of Windsor.
She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Especially when everyone was able to get together for family functions. Prior to covid, Mom would enjoy many fun rounds of Bingo with family and friends as well.
She didn't want her many friends to know or worry for her, when she found out her prognosis.
She didn't know how to tell them that she wasn't going to be here for much longer.
So many thanks and appreciation for the care and compassion our mother received from the nurses and doctors at the Dr. Y. Emara Centre For Healthy Aging and Mobility's Palliative Care Unit.
As well the heartfelt thanks to the Transition to Betterness (T2B) program there for all their supports to our family and mother.
