Spenst; Shirley Margaret
It is with great sadness that the family of Shirley Spenst announce her peaceful passing. She was born July 26, 1943 and passed away on May 27, 2015, at Cascade Lodge. The Armitage family moved out from Vancouver when she was just one year old, and she lived and grew up on Wells Road, Sardis. Shirley enjoyed being active in her children’s sports, watching her son play soccer and snowboard and her daughter in equestrian competitions. Her leadership, volunteering and organizing in many clubs, societies and associations was ever endless for many many years. She enjoyed bowling, camping with the family, bingo, casino trips and card games with friends.
Shirley was predeceased by her parents Walter and Isabel Armitage and brothers, Wally and Dick. She is survived by her husband John of 51 years; daughter Janice (Dallis) and son Brad (Michelle). She will be dearly missed by all. A celebration of her life will take place on June 20 at the Carman United Church Hall, Sardis, 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society in her name.
