Shirley R. (nee Hunt), Halifax, NS / Mount Pearl, NL With the same grace and dignity by which she lived her life, and surrounded with much love, Shirley passed away on Wednesday June 8, 2016.

Leaving to mourn with loving and lasting memories are her devoted partner Bryan Mac Dougall, her children Liam, Halifax; Joshua, (Dasha Ermolovich), St. John’s; Emily (Jon Bulatovic), Ottawa; Ellen, Halifax and their father, William J.

Holding her in their hearts are her Sisters, Phyllis Hunt, (John Dogherty); Cathy (Gary Whalen); Patricia (Tish), (Gordon Williams) and Susan, (Karl Misik); as well as her many nieces and nephews and a strong circle of friends.
