May 17, 1948 – April 27, 2011
With great sorrow, the family of Shirley Mollison of Calgary mourns her peaceful passing surrounded by her family on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at the age of 62 years, following a courageous battle with cancer.
Shirley was born in Strasbourg, Saskatchewan and grew up on a farm west of Duval, SK. Del and Shirley raised their family in Lumsden, SK and retired in Calgary, AB where they resided for the last seven years.
Shirley was interested in a number of things, but among the most important to her was spending time with her husband, family, grandchildren, and communicating with long term friends back home and new friends she had made in Calgary. She enjoyed gardening, travelling, especially to Hawaii, and many trips into the Rockies, stitching and attending every activity that she could that involved her beloved grandchildren, who they love and know to be as “Nana.”
Shirley is survived by her beloved husband of forty-two years, Del Mollison; son Warren (Heather), and grandchildren, Isaac and Rachel; daughter Tania (Marti), and grandchildren, Arden, Aricin, and Ainsli; sisters, Sharon Schultz (Jerry) Lake Nakamun, AB and Ruth White (Lorne) of Silton, SK and their respective families.
A Memorial Service will be held at Advent Lutheran Church (11 Scenic Acres Gate N.W.) on Saturday, May 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. The entire family wishes to express their gratitude and thanks to the caring staff at the Sarcee Carewest Hospice. The nursing staff will forever be in our hearts. As well, a great many thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.
