ROBERTSON, Shirley Margaret

March 13, 1934 – Truax, Saskatchewan
August 23, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

With loving hearts we announce the passing of Shirley Margaret Robertson on August 23, 2018 at the age of 84 years. Shirley will be remembered as a kind and devoted Mom, Mom-in-law, Grandma, GG, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, and friend.

Shirley raised her family with great pride, passing on her love of life, strong morals, and sense of humour combined with her flair for a kitchen dance. Mom was a constant source of strength and her resilience, courage, and determination inspired us all. She enjoyed playing Scrabble, golfing, walking, and sharing a good meal with family and friends. Among our fondest memories, is the time we spent celebrating her favorite night of the year, Christmas Eve, together.

Shirley leaves many to remember her, including her children, Laura and Bill Baird, Greg and Carol Robertson, Angela Doiron, Marlene and Larry Dezan, Sharon and Neil Zelinsky, Harold and Deanne Robertson; grandchildren, Elizabeth, Melissa (Doug), Matthew (Kelti), Jacqueline, Emily (Mike), Travis, Darren (Cobi), Shaun (Janette), Tyler (Gabi), Jessica (Cam), Colin, Adara, Hannah, Carter, Heather, Chris, Peter, Earl, Nick, and Jess; great-grandchildren, Simon, Sophie, and Morgan; pups, Ziggy and Duke.

Shirley was predeceased by her loving parents, Zita and Martin Schuett; sister, Irma; brothers, Melvin, Phil, and Jim; and sister-in-law, Audrey Schuett.

We wish to thank the staff at Carewest: Colonel Belcher, Foothills Medical Centre, and Sarcee Hospice for the excellent care Mom received. In lieu of flowers, we gratefully request that you please contribute to your preferred charity.

A celebration of Shirley’s life will take place at a later date.

    I knew Shirley for many years. We made sandwiches at Bowcliff Seniors together, and I golfed and played bridge with her. Shirley has had a hard life and been very ill. I have visited her at the Colonel Belcher Care Centre with Maxine and lunched with her. You have all been very lucky to have had her as a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a beautiful woman. I was very lucky to have had her as a friend for so long.
