CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d.1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapter, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m., and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9
