March 22, 1933 – May 13, 2022
After a difficult struggle with dementia, “Granny” is now at peace. Predeceased by her husband of 35 years, Jack. Lovingly remembered by daughters, Debbie Musson (Bruce) and Leslie Powers (Craig). Will be dearly missed by her brother Bob Griffin, seven grandchildren (one predeceased) and seven great-grandchildren. Shirley was a lifelong resident of Dundas and one of the longest surviving members of Knox Presbyterian Church. Over her lifetime, Shirley served as a switchboard operator, pharmacy assistant, department store supervisor, operated a monogramming business and lovingly cared for her grandchildren. An accomplished crafter, she excelled at sewing, knitting, folk art painting and baking delicious pies. The family is grateful to the staff of Bertram Place and St. Joseph’s Villa, Balsam Trail, for their compassionate care. Cremation has taken place. Friends and family will be received at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St., Dundas on Wednesday, May 18th from 7 to 9 p.m. The family requests that MASKS BE REQUIRED. A Memorial Service hosted by Knox Presbyterian Church will be held at St. Mark’s United Church, 1 Lynndale Dr., Dundas on Friday, May 20th at 10:30 a.m. and the family asks that MASKS BE REQUIRED. There will be no reception held given current COVID activity. Private interment to follow at Grove Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Hamilton Health Sciences specifying “McMaster Autism Program Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre 4th Floor” or Knox Presbyterian Church.
Although I didn’t know your Mom Debbie, that is a beautiful tribute to a lovely lady. One who I am sure will be missed.
So sorry for your loss Les, Toad and Jessica. But what a long full life!
Bob, Debbie, Leslie and families. I was sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. Treasure all of those happy memories. With sincere sympathy.

So sorry for your loss of such a dear sweet Mum. I remember those lovely kind eyes still after all these years while she was watching over me (even if I was getting into mischief). Please know we’re thinking of you and sending warm hugs.
Dear Leslie and family, We send our sympathy to you. We appreciated Shirley’s welcoming to friendship during our time at Knox, Dundas.
Sincerely, Warren and Joyce
