Shirley Anne Garvey passed away Saturday, January 31, 2015 at Arrow Lake Hospital in Nakusp BC at the age of 78. Shirley is survived by her loving husband Clarence of 58 years. They were married in Brantford Ontario at the Holy Trinity Church June 27, 1958.
Shirley is lovingly remembered by her husband Clarence; her son Michael ( Valerie Bristowe); her granddaughter Nicole; her sister-in-law Ila Franklin; her nephews Greg Rowe ( Anna and their children); Dave Franklin ( Laurie and their children); Ken Franklin (Terri and their children) nieces Vicki (Lindsey and their children); Karen (Bob and their children); and by her many friends from Brantford, Orillia, Calgary and Nakusp.
Shirley will be remembered when shopping by numerous people in Nakusp as she and Clarence jokingly bantered back and forth with each other and staff. Shirley loved playing the piano. She always looked forward to playing for the united church, Halcyon Home and Minto House in Nakusp. She thoroughly enjoyed her time with the Senior Serenaders of Nakusp. Her passion was to spend time with her husband Clarence. They loved to go shopping, watch TV, go camping, play a variety of board and card games and their XBOX 360.
Cremation has taken place at Nelson Crematorium.
