Shirley Ann Picard

March 2, 1944 – June 25, 2018
Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother & Friend

It is with great sadness that I announce the end of a precious life. My mom valiantly faced her cancer remaining steadfast and strong until the end. I am grateful that myself and her friends were able to surround her with love until her last day at Nanaimo Regional Hospital.

Shirley took pride in everything she did. She was happy, kind, smart and genuine. She loved her family and friends and enjoyed spending time with them at her home on Vancouver Island.

Mom’s last year was extremely difficult caring for her husband Rick who also fought cancer. She lost Rick just 6 months before her own passing. She was so grateful for the 50 incredible years they spent together as inseparable partners in everything they did and accomplished.

She will be missed by her children Kelly and Brent, brothers Zenith (wife Doreen) and Bernie (wife Gail) sister Garnie (husband Jack) grandchild Cody, many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends (many of which knew her as “mum”).

All of us that knew her will miss her terribly.
