Obituary of Shirley Thurston



Shirley Anne Mabel Thurston  (July 9th, 1950 – January 19th, 2024)


Our dear Shirley received her angel wings in her 74th year on Friday January 19th, 2024. Shirley passed away peacefully with her friends and family by her side at Pinecrest Nursing Home in Bobcaygeon. Pinecrest was Shirley’s home for almost 20 years. Shirley will be greatly missed by her brother William (Carol) Foster, her many siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She is now reunited with her beloved step-mom Irma J. Thurston (Thibadeau), father Robert Robertson Thurston, mother Anne Thurston (Hunsley) and many others. 


Shirley was an inspiration to those who knew her. She was a great teacher, had lots of patience, and the biggest heart. Shirley was the type of person who could lighten up a room with her smile and could warm your heart with her eyes. Shirley will be greatly missed but we know she is looking down on us and dancing in the clouds.
