We Remember

CARROLL, Shirley

July 31, 1932 — November 19, 2023

Shirley Carroll passed away peacefully at Mill Creek Residential Care and went to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at the age of 91, in Kelowna, BC. Shirley joins her parents and five siblings — Beryl, Helen, Donald, Harry, and Charles. Shirley was born on July 31, 1932, in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, to the late Harry and Mable (née Claridge) Dares.

Shirley leaves behind her husband of 46 years, Patrick Carroll; children Gerald, Jeff (Evelyn), and Leslie; and five grandchildren.

In her early years, Shirley worked at the Navy dockyard as a stenographer and communicator. Shirley had a heart devoted to the simple joys of life. Her affection for animals, especially cats, matched the depth of her passion for her hobbies.

Shirley was a skillful seamstress, artist, and had a mastery of baking. Shirley spread her friendship over the entirety of Canada as her family moved from Nova Scotia, Goose Bay Labrador, Gander Newfoundland, Ontario, Alberta, and BC.

Shirley’s true joy presented in being a nurturing and affectionate mother and homemaker. Her devotion knew no bounds as she showered her children with boundless love and unwavering support. Shirley lived a life where simplicity met happiness, leaving a legacy of warmth and love.

We are so thankful for our Mother, and we aspire to follow in her footsteps of kindness and grace, and we are all grateful for her love. She will be forever missed.
