Obituary of Shirley Kathlean

In loving memory of our beloved mother, Shirley Kathlean, who passed away on May 9, 2023. She was a loving mother of six children, a grandmother of five children, a great-grandmother of five children, and a true friend. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.


Our mother was a kind, caring and giving person who always put the needs of her family before her own. She was a strong woman who faced every challenge with courage and dignity. She was a talented artist, enjoyed a love of photography, and had the ability to use any medium to draw an astonishingly beautiful piece of work. She was a woman of strong faith; she possessed an unfettered positive outlook on life and anything that came with. She instilled in us the importance of family. She had a childlike zest for life, and she will be deeply missed by everyone whose lives she touched.


Mother, you will forever live in our hearts, and we shall carry your loving nature throughout our lives. We love you. Rest in Peace.


No service will be held. Maybe instead, plant a flower in her memory, so that every time it blooms you can think of the beauty that she saw in nature every day.


Please leave condolences or share memories and photos on the Tribute Wall to the left.
