Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • I believe Shirley and I started our Breast Cancer Journey the same year. We actually met at several Cancer Care Support group gatherings. Enjoyed every minute of our friendship. My late husband, Terry, passed away April of 2003. He made sure I attended every possible support meetings and really enjoyed getting to know Shirley. I know they are probably chatting now. Shirley and I travelled a lot together with Chemo Savvy. One of our trips was to Australia. Shirley, Patricia, Lydia and myself extended our trip to New Zealand, Tasmania and Hawaii. Our trip to Tasmania, Patricia had a cousin living there. John and his wife Yana, 3 children and 2 dogs, put us up for a few days staying at their home on a mountain side. Each one of the children gave up their bedrooms for each of us. Shirley walked into her bedroom and low and behold the dog was stretched out on her bed, absolutely no room for Shirley, and I will always remember Shirley voice calling out, "Well...I don't think so buddy, with a burst of laughter. Also Yana's parents lived in their home further up the mountain. Every evening they had cooked supper for the whole family and celebrated our company with Raw Oysters and Wine and of course lamb. The youngest of the children taught us all how to eat the raw oysters with their homemade sauce. I remember Shirley saying, " it is in my stomach...I can't believe I swallowed it". Yana's Mom had a Bing Cherry tree on their property. The cherries were picked and soaked in Vodka. This was served as part of our dessert. Shirley said, "thank goodness John's home is located down the mountain side." Shirley was my strength and anchor. I miss her.

  • I have known Shirley for a number of years as a member of our Sherbrook Pool Aqasize classes before the Pandemic. She was a tireless leader in our numerous campaigns to keep Sherbrook Pool open and delivering the services we all value! Her good humour and sparkling personality was a delight in the locker room and at our coffee gatherings after workouts. Shirley never turned away from a challenge - I am inspired to continue the fight for social justice! Val Bingeman - May 24, 2022 - Posted by: Val Bingeman (Friend) on: May 24, 2022

  • Sincere condolences Alexis, Mark, little Mark, Anna & Henry on the passing of your Mom & Gramma. It came as a shock, I thought she would beat cancer because she was a fierce fighter. My regret is that I didn't get to tell her how special she was. She was such an interesting woman & admired by many in Chemo Savvy. She was wundrwomyn. Rest in peace my friend.

  • Shirley was a vibrant member of the seniors aquacize class at Sherbrook Pool for many years and a lively participant at our post-exercise coffee clatches at the Feast Cafe. She had a dynamic and deeply committed approach to preserving our exercise program as it faced many threats of closure over the years. She mounted that same valiant energy against her personal health challenges. Shirley, you are sorely missed. - Posted by: Louise Lamb (Friend and sister aquacizer ) on: May 20, 2022

  • Deepest Sympathy to Shirley's family. I bowled with Shirley at Polo ParK Bowling Lanes for many years. Shirley was always a passionate and understanding person.

  • Sincere condolences to Shirley's family as you grieve your loss. I feel fortunate that I had the pleasure to get to know Shirley over a number of years. She was a strong and courageous woman who faced the challenges in life with confidence, independence and wisdom. I enjoyed her company at the table of the TGIF suppers. She had many stories to share of work experiences she had had over her life time. She had a full and rewarding life. She will be missed and she will be remembered by many. I know that you, her, family will find comfort in the memories you have of your mother. In sympathy at this difficult time, Shirley Augustine. - Posted by: Shirley Augustine (friend) on: May 18, 2022

  • I have known Shirley 19 years and consider her a good friend. I even joined her exercise class in the apartment block we both lived in but it was too intense for me to continue with. That is Shirley. Strong, determined and always a friend. She will be missed in the block. REST IN PEACE, SHIRLEY! Kathy. - Posted by: Kathryn Guilford (Friend and neighbour.) on: May 18, 2022
