Shirley and Bill owned a Massey Ferguson farm machinery dealership in Listowel for 25 years. They purchased a family cottage in Point Clark in 1964 and retired there full-time in 1991.
Shirley was an active member of the Kinette Club of Listowel and an avid curler. In retirement, Shirley and Bill wintered in Florida for many years. They were both very involved in the Point Clark Boat Club and Lake Huron fishing derby. Shirley and Bill were also members of the Pine River United Church.
Their home in Point Clark was the center of many gatherings with family and friends. Many special occasions were celebrated there, and Shirley made sure no one left hungry. In quieter times, she enjoyed playing cards, reading and watching curling and her favourite sports teams on TV. Shirley will be missed by many friends and family.
