  5. My husband and I moved to Chatham in 1994 and I managed the Smart Set store at North Maple. Shirley was one of the first people I met in this small city. She was so welcoming and loved to chat as she worked at the Lotto booth. I was lucky enough to have hired her on at Winners and she was one of the most dedicated , kindest people I had ever met. Such a loss when she retired from the store and she will always hold a special place in my heart.

  6. What a beautiful lady! So many great memories of her and many wonderful chats. Deepest Sympathies to her family!❤
