THOMPSON:  Shirley Eileen
On the evening of November 13, 2014, at the Belleville General Hospital, our wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away peacefully surrounded by members of her family at the age of 88 just shy of her 89th birthday. She was born on November 19, 1925 in Kingston, Ontario to her late parents Douglas and Rose Lillian (Bocking) Thompson. She was predeceased by her beloved older sister Sybil Olive Thompson. Shirley was wife to the late Thomas Carbert Thompson and supportive and proud mother to Robert, William (Lynda), Barbara (Wilf), and David (Katherine). As a loving grandmother, she will be missed by Laura (Troy), Robert, Christopher (Cris), David (Joy), Victoria (Joel), and Thomas. Shirley was the caring great-grandmother of Kayla, Ava, Cameron, and Justin.  As a widowed single parent of four, Shirley returned to work at the Ottawa Board of Education as a guidance secretary at Brookfield High School from where she retired to care for her sister Sybil, work in her garden, and enjoy her many friends and neighbours on Fulton Avenue. Later in life she moved to Madoc to live with William and Lynda where she enjoyed visits and hearing from past friends and family who will miss her.  A private service will be planned for Cataraqui Cemetery in Kingston, Ontario in the spring where Shirley will be interred with her parents and sister. We know Shirley would appreciate any donations in her memory be made to the Ottawa Humane Society or Guide Dogs for the Blind.
