Obituary of Shirley Marjorie Shore
On Monday, March 15th, 2021, Shirley Marjorie Shore passed away peacefully at University Hospital in her 96th year. She was the only child of the late Alice (Carley) and Bill (Pack ). She was born and raised on the family farm on Pack Road, Lambeth. Also predeceased by husband John Shore, son Stephen, and granddaughter Angelica. Loving mom of Jay (Sharon), Ottawa, Bob (Lynne), Vancouver, Sherry, London, and Rod (Ruth), Delaware. Fourteen grandchildren and five great grandsons called her Grandy. All were the love of her life and were her “chickadees”— Steve (Jacqueline), Nick (Gillian), James (Jenny), Marquesa (Braeden), Carley (Dave), Matías (Meaghan), Nico (Dawn), James, John (Megan), Brianne (Matt), Liam, Hayden, Camila, and Clara.
Shirley will be fondly remembered by her extended Pack family. She shared a lifetime of laughter and memories with them, especially at the Pack Family Reunions. Music has always played an important role in her life, singing in the Lambeth United Church choir since the age of three following in the footsteps of her mother and grandparents. Shirley has lived an extraordinary life, including training as a classical vocalist in New York and San Francisco, touring as a professional singer, fulfilling a life-long dream of learning to fly a floatplane at the age of 48, and being an entrepreneur who brought several products to market. Shirley believed life was an adventure and was a natural mentor to all her children and grandchildren. She will be remembered for her positive outlook and joie de vivre, and will be greatly missed by all. Her faith will hold her in good stead as she continues on her next adventure.
