Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Shirley Catherine Curry, on Saturday, October 28, 2023 at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia. She was 93 years old.

Shirley was born and grew up in Watson, Saskatchewan to Edith and Leonard Wenschlag. She trained as a school teacher, and an RCAF Airwoman before raising her family. Shirley was predeceased by her husband Jim in 1982, and her brother Patrick in 1998. She is survived by her two grandchildren, Adam and Jasmine, her sons James (Ana) and Patrick, and her daughter Lynne. Shirley is also survived by her sister Beverley Petersen (Jim), niece Rhonda, nephew Ryan (Joanne), along with numerous cherished cousins and friends. We extend a special thank you to Dr. Crofton, and the staff at AgeCare Glenwarren and Royal Jubilee Hospital.

In keeping with her wishes, a cremation has taken place. If desired, donations to a charity of your choice will be gratefully acknowledged as an expression of sympathy. Mom was an adventurous spirit who loved life – always growing and generous. We will all miss her so much. She had a wonderful humanity, and delighted in and loved children. She gave us the most important gift of all – she gave us the gift of love.
