Shirly was born and raised in Port Alberni and this is where she met the love of her life. Bruce and Shirly started their family and then when the kids were younger – work took them to the west coast where they lived for 10 years. As the years passed by, Shirly longed to return to the valley to be closer to her parents and family, so it was back to the valley they went. With her roots planted deep they started the next chapter of their life. Shirly enjoyed bowling with her parents, many social events at the Sons of Norway hall, meeting up for an afternoon coffee, camping, home decorating, shopping, and family game night and movie night sleepovers with her grand/great grand children. Shirly was a warrior, marvel, and a beautiful human that fought her battle with cancer for 19 years with such strength, dignity and grace.
