BLAIR Shirley May
Dec 11, 1928 ~ March 27, 2009
Born at Regina, Saskatchewan. Died peacefully in her sleep and passed into God’s loving arms at Baillie House, Maple Ridge, B.C. Shirley graduated from Holy Family Hospital School of Nursing in 1954, entering into a profession she was dedicated to and very proud to belong to. She was, to the many patients she looked after during her long and fulfilling career, a very warm, caring and giving “Nurse Shirley”. Shirley was dedicated in her commitment to her faith in God and His church. She loved all those things she considered gifts from God; her garden, nature, art, music, and most especially her much adored grandchildren. She is predeceased by her mother and father
Florence and Joseph Blair, brothers Art and Earl and brother-in-law Peter. Left to hold her in our hearts is her daughter Debbie (Rob), sons Ron (Karen), Doug (Susan), grandsons Kyle and Kevin, granddaughter Carlie, sisters Olive, Louise (Ron), Lena (Jack), Maryann (Bob), Florence, brothers Lewis (Margaret), Adlard (Judi), Albert, Frank (Sharon), David (Doris) and many nieces, nephews and friends. A Celebration of Shirley’s Life will be held on Friday, April 3rd, 2009 @ 1:00 pm at Pitt Meadows United Church, 12109 Harris Road, Pitt Meadows, B.C.
