I am so sorry…I met Shirley and her husband at the Suffield House. They had a bird feeder outside the window and I always looked forward to seeing them.

Shirley was a good friend of my mother, Rita Montminy, they shared many a good time while we were growing up on Jackson Rd. She is the one who taught me how to knit when I was probably 10 years old and ignited a passion for the passtime in me. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by her family.

Dear Dick and family,
So sorry for your loss. Shirley was such a dear around the time of my wedding (26+ years ago by now). She not only tailored my bridesmaids dresses, but she sewed dresses for my flower girls. It was lovely of her to put her talents to use to make members of our wedding party look and feel their best.
In addition, she and Dick made a lovely quilt and stand as a wedding gift that are still in use.
May wonderful memories comfort you now and always.
Tina Levesque (daughter of Wayne and Dorothy Larocque)
