Smith, Shirley Marie (nee Dinsmore)
Died peacefully on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at home, in her favourite chair in her 76th year. Shirl, loved wife of the late Edward Smith. Loving mother of Wayne Smith and Lorrie (Kevin Ferguson). Dear Grandma to Tyler Ferguson, Chad Ferguson (Carleigh) and Jenna Kesheshian (Alex). She cherished her role as Great Grandma to Adeline (2 yrs) and Jameson (1 month) Kesheshian and Senna Rae Ferguson (6 months). Sister of Betty (Dave Galbraith) of Orangeville, Margaret (and the late Robert Stevens) of London, Patricia (Dave Bowes) of Stayner and Glen Dinsmore (Liz) of BC. Predeceased by sister Eileen (and Norman Thompson) and parents Delmar and Muriel Dinsmore. She will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews. Shirl started her working career with Bell Canada in Shelburne at 16 years old. She remained with Bell for 13 years and finished that career as an Assistant Supervisor at the Orangeville location. She loved being outdoors and Shirl and Ed and the kids spent many summers camping and many winters snowmobiling. Country music was always her passion and over the years she attended many concerts and made a few trips to Nashville. She loved hockey and was a Toronto Maple Leaf fan since a young girl. She loved her family dearly and was proud of each and every one of them. She always worried and cared for others more than for herself. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Per Shirl’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service. Donations in Shirl’s memory can be made to the CNIB or North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN.

Rest in peace my dear friend of 60 years. We shared many good times together during that time, including standing up for each other at each of our weddings. We saw each others children grow and also saw grandchildren come along as well. We where a part of each others family. We first met in 1960 in Shelburne when we worked at The Bell together. We kept up the friendship for all these years and chatted by phone every week. I miss you terribly and our weekly chats and will for some time to come. I love you and know that you are now at peace. God Bless You.
