MULVEY, Shirley - With great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom, Shirley Mulvey into a different realm on Thursday, October 4th, 2018, in her 84th year.
She was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Stan, and was a devoted mom to Don (Mary Ellen), Debra (Trevor) and Dennis (Karen).
She will also be dearly missed by her grandchildren Michael (Monica), Nancy (Mike), Ian (Jessica), Kyle (Jasmine), a growing gaggle of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a lifetime of friends.
Mom was born in Winnipeg, raised her three children there, moving to Montreal in 1970 when Stan was transferred with Air Canada. On his retirement they relocated to Burlington, were active with the Newcomers and quickly cultivated many new friendships.
She taught piano in Winnipeg, played piano in church (and sang in the choir) in Montreal and in Burlington became an avid bridge player. She no doubt has organized and joined a bridge table already. A few winters in Florida didn’t do much to improve her golf game.
She was truly happiest when surrounded by family and friends.
Respecting her wishes, there will be a private cremation and interment. A Memorial Reception will be held on Thursday October 11 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Dodsworth & Brown funeral home - Burlington Chapel (2241 New Street).
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Parkinson Society Canada or the MS Society Canada would be appreciated by the family.
