To Shirley’s Family & Sister Marion,

I Am Shocked On The Passing Of Such A Lovely Lady. Beautiful Inside & Out, Shirley Was One Of A Kind. Shirley & Her Sister Marion Use To Come In The Sobeys Store In Liverpool Weekly. I Loved To Wait On Both Of Them. Always Coming To My Register To Be Checked out, We Always Had Such Delightful Chats. I Will Never Forget The Day When They Came In To The Store To Shop And They Both Came To Me And Before They Left They Handed Me Some Strawberry Jam One Time And Then Another Time Marion Brought Me In Some Pepper Jam. I Never Tasted Anything So Delicious In All My Life. Shirley Was Such A Delight, Always Smiling And So Easy To Talk To. Marion I Know How Much You Will Miss Your Sister Because I Sure Do Miss Mine. God Has Received The Most Gracious Angel, May Shirley Now Rest In Peace. I Will Miss Shirley Giving Me A Wave From The Other Side Of The Street with Her Infectious Smile. May God Wrap His Loving Arms Around You All And Let The healing Begin.

Peggy Payzant, ( Now Retired From Sobeys )

To Shirley’s family especially her wonderful shadow Marion. Shirley was as beautiful on the inside as the outside, thanks to Hope. I knew her and Marion because of their walks years back and sometimes we would run into each other at the salon. They both gave me an uplifted heart and the realization that you can be beautiful, young at heart and have a wonderful sense of humour no matter your age. The world especially for Marion and her family, will be little more sad for her passing, however God has one more beautiful angel in heaven! Rest in peace Shirley. Bonnie Gay Hartlen
