It is with sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Shirley on October 1, 2012 in Hillside Village, Salmon Arm at the age of 77 years with family by her side.
Shirley was predeceased by her loving husband Peter Ronald Harder and is survived by her loving children Joyce (Glenn) Skinner, Diane Gamblin, Deb (Ed) Moore and Ron Harder, eight grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, sisters Judith MacDonald and Grace (Frank) Chritchley, brothers Ralph (Judy) Elliott, Jack Elliott, nieces, nephews and many family members.
In lieu of flowers, if so desired, memorial donations in Shirley’s ┬áname may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC, Suite 300, 8282 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1E2.

God saw her getting tired,

and help was not to be:

so opened up his loving arms

and whispered, “Come to Me”.

With tearful eyes we

Watched her suffer, and

Saw her fade away;

Although we loved her dearly,

We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Her loving hands now rest;

God broke our hearts to

prove to us, He only takes

The Best.
