It is with great sadness that the family of Shirley Regan announces her peaceful passing on June 21, 2024. Beloved spouse of Jim for 50 years. Loving mother and best friend of Elizabeth. Adoring grandmother of Emma and Dylan Wade. Dear sister to Rosanne Alfano (James) and Nancy Jakabfy (Tom) and the late Frances Ciancone. She is lovingly remembered by her nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and nephews. Shirley will also be missed by many dear friends.

Shirley was a dedicated and beloved teacher in Dundas and Waterdown for 35 years. She will be fondly remembered by her students. Shirley was truly remarkable. She could command a classroom with compassion, a wonderful shopping & travel companion, planned beautiful get-togethers and fiercely loved her friends and family.

A private funeral was held at Turner Family Funeral Home, interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and a celebration of life gathering at Royal Botanical Gardens on June 26.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Juravinski Hospital Hematology & Oncology and Margaret’s Place Hospice for their exceptional care and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Margaret’s Place Hospice in Dundas, Ontario.
