Over the years Shirley's hobbies included Bridge, Rummoli and Bingo. Her home was her pride and joy and she had a flare for decorating. Shirley loved babysitting all the little ones in the family and was a devoted cat Mom. She was also known at the Carleton Kirk to always have candy in her room, which she would kindly offer to her fellow residents.
In her youth Shirley was involved in St. George’s Anglican Church and sang in the choir. Shirley was a lifelong Westsider, she worked at the Bank of Nova Scotia, West for over 40 years as a Teller, and she truly enjoyed her work.
