We regret to announce the death of Shirley Turner at the age of 89 in Salmon Arm, B.C.  Shirley was born in Saskatchewan and lived in the Perdue/Saskatoon/ Melfort area for many years. She moved, with her family, to Chase, BC in 1969 and has been a resident there ever since. Shirley is pre-deceased by her husband Jack Turner, her brother Lawrence Moon and her sister Irene Pocock.  Shirley is survived by her brother Bill Moon of Perdue, Saskatchewan; her children Lynne (David) Inkster, Sheryl (Marvin) Penttila, Randy (Karen) Turner, Michael (Lesley) Turner, Jacqueline (Damon) Turner; 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

Shirley will be remembered as a very loving wife, mother and grandmother by her family. Her love of family came first but she also dedicated much of her time to volunteer work in the community and nurturing her friendships. Many will remember her smile, kindness and gentle demeanor.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents of Parkside Retirement Residence in Chase and the staff at Hillside Village in Salmon Arm for the exemplary care and friendship she received in both facilities.

Please join the family for a celebration of Shirley’s life to be held at the Chase Legion on Friday, December 22, 2023 at 2 o’clock. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation at  www.heartandstroke.ca or 885 Dunsmuir St, Suite 200, Vancouver, BC V6C 1N5 would be gratefully appreciated.

  4. We fondly remember Aunt Shirley’s kind ways, warm voice and friendly demeanour. We enjoyed many visits in Perdue over the years and fondly recall the support Aunt Shirley and Uncle Jack were to Dad when Mom passed away. She was always one to ask how someone was doing and was so sincerely interested in others. She will be missed.

    I’m sorry to hear of her passing, my sincere thoughts are with her family

  6. Shirley will always be remembered by me. She helped me with Algebra and Physics while I was in high school. Maybe if it wasn’t for Shirley, I would still be in school. Dad told me I couldn’t quit school, I had to graduate. Thanks to Shirley, I did! Not only that, I became very good at math. Thankyou, Shirley!
