It is with great sadness that the family of Shirley N. Jones announce her peaceful passing on December 21, 2021, in her 82nd year. Shirley was born and grew up in the Beaches area of Toronto, the eldest of 3 sisters. She is survived by sisters Barbara Taylor (Anthony) and Mary Grant, nephew Douglas Shields, and nieces Karen Taylor Smith (Michael), Kimberley, and Cara Bostwick (Andrew). Shirley graduated from the University of Guelph in 1962, and also earned two Master's degrees in Education. She taught Family Studies in Sydenham, Oshawa, and Mississauga. She was a member of the Canadian Home Economics Association and a representative of Canada to the International Federation of Home Economists. Upon retiring in 1996, Shirley moved to Lake Valley Grove, near Forest, ON. She became very involved in a large number of activities in Forest and had many friends and acquaintances there. She was an avid traveller and an enthusiastic photographer. Shirley moved to Burlington in 2016, when symptoms of Alzheimer's disease made it unsafe for her to live on her own. We want to thank the staff members of LaSalle Park Retirement Residence, Chartwell Lakeshore Retirement Residence, and Creek Way Village for their caring support to Shirley throughout her journey with Alzheimer's. Memorial services for Shirley will be held at a later date. Memorial donations to the Alzheimer Society, the United Church of Canada Mission and Service Fund, Community Living Burlington, or to the charity of your choice would be welcome. Condolences, memories and photos may be left here.
