Shirley was one of the loveliest cousins we could ever have had. I was a flower girl in Shirley and Bill’s wedding so many, many years ago. We have enjoyed many a chuckle over the years at our family gatherings at Pelican Lake. We will miss her but have many wonderful memories. Our love to Bill and family. Alison and Don North, Barbara Irish

So sorry for your loss Dorothy. I remember your Mom with many fond memories. She was always so gracious and loving with a strong dose of mischief!! I remember many stories of her having way too much fun at bonspiels!! (Remember Bowling Green, Ohio Summer Spiel??) She will be missed by so many family and friends.
