Shirley May Young

May 30, 1934 – October 19, 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shirley Young.

Shirley is survived by her husband of 26 years, Cam; daughters, Cindy (Murray) Scollon, Corry (Rick) Hannah; step-daughter, Deanna (Ken) Gilson; grand-daughters, Tracy (Jordan) Canuel, Keri (Jonathan) Cooke, Angela (Jonathan) McKinney; great-grandchildren, Makyla and Chase Cooke, Colton and Kiel Canuel, Jayda and Rhys McKinney; and step-grandsons, Devon and Kyle Gilson.

Shirley moved from Vancouver to Vancouver Island in 1969, and enjoyed travelling, gardening, and her dogs. She will be deeply missed by many family and friends and will forever be known as “Shirley from the Well”.

The family would like to thank Dr. Forrester and the wonderful nurses in the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
