Shirley (mom) was an excellent student winning the Governor General and Lady Alexander Award for Academics in her home province of P.E.I. An avid reader, Shirley loved biographies. She was always more interested in people, friends, and family and could be counted on to lend an ear and help whenever possible. Shirley was a teacher before leaving P.E.I to follow her love to Toronto where she married Al, raised her family and worked as a bookkeeper.
In their retirement years, Shirley and Al traveled, enjoyed summers in PEI., and spending time with family and friends.
