Shirley was born on April 23,1938 in Kitchener, Ontario. Shirley spent 38 years at Lear Corporation. While at Lear, Shirley developed many lifelong friendships. After retirement, Shirley embarked on a whole new chapter and became a snowbird where she made her winter home in Port Charlotte, Florida. Shirley found herself surrounded by friends who became family and for 23 years they became a community that only grew stronger. Going to Florida was something Shirley looked forward to every year. Anyone who went to visit her there, realized this was Shirley’s paradise.
