I was so sad to hear of Shirley’s passing. She was such a loving and caring person. She opened her arms up and welcomed me into her family, we shared lots of great times and many laughs. Roger and Keith, I am so sorry for your loss, I hope you find peace knowing your Mom is reunited with your Dad.

I will always remember Aunt Shirley being so kind and loving during her visits to our home in Montreal when I was younger. I’m sorry for your loss, our sincerest condolences.

I was quite saddened to hear the news of Aunt Shirleys passing and I wish you my deepest condolences at this difficult time. She will be dearly missed by all those who were blessed enough to have known her and the how strong of a person she was. Although I am saddened in having to say goodbye to her now, there is comfort to be found in knowing that she will be reunited with her love, Uncle Herb, and her sister Florrie. Rest easy, Aunt Shirley ❤️

I have fond memories of Shirley when we worked together at Knickerbockers. She had a great sense of humor and a very strong will. My heart goes out to her family and friends.. .. God Bless..

Saddened to hear of Aunt Shirley’s passing. She was a strong woman who always fought with resilience. I hold fond memories of my time with her. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.

Keith and Roger,

I just learned of your Mom’s passing. I am so very saddened by this news. She was a very special person and we continued to keep in touch over the years. My heart is breaking into many pieces for you right now. Please accept my most sincere condolences to both of you and your family.

Lisa (on behalf of myself and the Crewe family)

Keith, Roger, Stacie, Jack and all members of the Legrow & King Families.

Please accept my condolences in the passing of your dear mother, grandmother, sister, sister in law, aunt and friend.

Shirley suffered gracefully and long and has surely earned her reward, a special place in a beautiful Heaven. Your dad, most probably led the angels in a beautiful choir to welcome her Home! May you find consolation in knowing her suffering is over, and she is with your dad enjoying a beautiful eternity.

I broke the news to Clayton yesterday. He repeated her name a few times but I’m not sure he understood or retained.

However, on behalf of both of us, hugs and may God comfort you. If you ever decide to come this way my
door is always open to each and all..

Mary & Clayton

The day before we left for our trip, I went to the hospital to say good bye. I could never had imagined it was the last time I would see her.

So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time and the times ahead.
