Obituary of Shirley Elizabeth Heaps

Heaps, Shirley Elizabeth It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Shirley Elizabeth Heaps (nee Downing) peacefully at Southlake Regional Hospital after a brief battle with cancer in the morning of Monday, April 19th. She leaves behind daughter Catherine (Randy), grandchildren Amanda (Doug), Katherine, David, Laura (Rick), Ashley (Donald) and Curtis (Anna) and great grandchildren Callie, Domenic and Maiya. When Shirley wasn't surrounded by family, she spent much of the last 45 years giving back to her community and making lifelong friendships through Kin Canada as a Life Member of the Kinette Club of Sutton alongside her late husband Denis. While her family will sorely miss her, they take peace in knowing she has joined her husband and son Michael to watch over us all, free from suffering and pain. Although Shirley's life ended before we were ready, the time she has spent in all our lives was memorable and full of joy. We wish to honour her love of life in a gathering at a future time when we can laugh, cry and remember her all together without restrictions. Memorial donations may be made on her behalf to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. .Memorial condolences may be made at
