HENDERSON – Shirley Joan (nee Enjeneski)

November 11, 1953 – March 10, 2011

Shirley Joan Henderson (nee Enjeneski) passed away quietly in her sleep on Thursday, March 10, 2011.

Shirley spent most of her life in Calgary, but also lived as far away as Germany, and as close as Brooks before settling again in her hometown of Calgary. The last decade was spent living at Barr Homes with some very remarkable roommates. They all loved to go to concerts together and even vacationed together in Las Vegas and Nashville. Shirley struggled with serious health issues most of her life, and during the last few years her health deteriorated, curtailing a lot of the activities she loved, such as volunteering at the Kirby Centre and shopping at Westbrook Mall.

She is survived by her two children, Serena and Paul Wutzke; her grandmother Mary Magusiak; her two brothers, Brian and Jim ( Kathie) Enjeneski; and many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. She will be sadly missed by all of her friends and family, as well as her extended family at Barr Homes: Ralph Bales, Stan Fong, Fred Leclair, and Perry and Sonja Litwack.

Shirley was predeceased by both of her parents, Olga and Joe Enjeneski; and her husband Dave Henderson.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Thursday, March 17, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Shirley Henderson, 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.

    We are Perry’s brothers and proudly so. She was in the best hands with him looking over her. From taking her to Doctor’s visits or trekking through Tennessee with the Barr Homes gang, Perry was perfect. We know she was special to him and Sonja. Ourselves, we will miss her sincere smiles and greetings whenever we would go to Barr Homes to move furniture. Our thoughts and prayers to her family, and the Barr Homes family of Ralph, Stan, Fred, Perry & Sonja. Shirley will be missed by everyone she touched.
