Died Wednesday, February 23, 2022 peacefully in her room at Highgate Residence in Ancaster, Ontario with her daughter by her side. Shirley was born in Hamilton, Ontario on August 9, 1925 to parents James Charles Fraser and Ruth Watson. Predeceased by her husband of 63 years Richard James (Jim) Raycroft, her younger sister and brother in law, Jean and David McLay, and her son-in-law Mark Nelson. She is survived by her son Ian (Francine), daughter Kathryn Nelson and grandson Nicholas (Trina Watters). Before having her children, Shirley worked at the Bank of Commerce at King and Bay in Toronto, and later served as a volunteer clinical secretary at the Donwood Institute in Leaside. She will be remembered for her keen wit, love of gardening and sewing, her sharp sense of humour and culinary skills. She enjoyed travelling with the friends made through Jim’s years at Honeywell, particularly their many trips to Bermuda. Her red hair and freckles drove her to prefer winter sports although she was an avid golfer, tennis and badminton player in her younger years. We are grateful to the staff at Highgate for the compassionate care provided in both the Memory and Care wings. Friends will be received by the family on Friday, March 4, 2022 from 12 until the Service for Shirley at 1 o’clock at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas. Cremation has taken place.
