DUCKETT, Shirley Gwendolyn Agar (nee Hamilton)

January 14, 1922 – August 5, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shirley Gwendolyn Duckett on August 5, 2011 at the age of 89 years.

Above all, her family was always first, nothing made her happier than spending time with her kids or grandkids. We all cherish the strong sense of family that she so proudly displayed for us. We will all miss her dearly. You will forever be in our hearts and we will find comfort in knowing that you will be with us always in spirit.

Shirley will be sorely missed by her children, Wendy Gromniski (Tony), David Duckett (Sheila), Glynis Husson (Sergio); grandchildren, Corey and Tyler Husson, Steven and Lindsey Duckett all of Calgary. She is survived by her brother Glen and sister-in-law Margaret Hamilton of Kelowna, BC; brother-in-law Don Moss of Duncan, BC; loving nieces Linda, Aurora, Merilynn (Paul) and nephews Wayne (Linda), Bruce and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews. Shirley was predeceased by her husband Bill; her parents Alvin and Lillian Hamilton; and her sister-in-law Christina Moss.

A Private family service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Shirley Duckett, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

  1. Hillhurst IOOF Lodge #46 ( Neil Thurber) :

    The officers and members of Hillhurst IOOF Lodge #46 express our condolences to the family of Shirley. She was classified as one of our “widows”. We realize Shirley had been in poor health for some time now, but still regret her passing. May she cross that River and be content on the other side.

  2. David Sheridan :

    Along with my husband Albert, we shared many good times with Shirley during our 11 years in Calgary. We visited Shirley most recently in 2009 and although her health was on the wane the news of her passing was terribly sad. The loss of a dear friend is made more bearable by the many happy memories of those days.

  3. To the family of Shirley Duckett

    Although frail when I saw your Mother last she was very alert mentally. She asked about old Cathedral Manor neighbours, delighted I was headed for California indefinetly to my daughter’s home. She & I shared a bond regarding our deep love of family. She was so happy you girls kept her in the latest fashions & always showed me her latest additions in the closet. Her sense of humour was intact, laughing about Mr. Bob ( Farries ) marrying at last.
    She was so proud of you all & felt very loved by the entire family. I know she will be missed .
