I will forever remember the great times that Shirlee and I shared. I will surely miss our beautiful conversations about our families and her words of encouragement and wisdom. Shirlee was such an inspiration to all who she encountered. Her love of nature was awe inspiring. Our walk through the vegetable garden and flower gardens on my last visit with her will be forever etched in my memory. Sending prayers, hugs and much love to you, Gene, Evadne, Leslie, Owen and all loved ones and friends.
I have so many fond memories of living near Shirlee and Gene was I was young. I was always welcome in their home and Shirlee was always available to talk with me about any problems in my life. What a kind generous woman she was. I got to go to school with her a few times and was amazed at her calm manner with some children with challenging behaviors. Her sense of humor also diffused some tense situations. She truly was a gifted teacher. The world is a better place because of her. She touched many, many lives.
