Shirley Frances Spence

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shirley Frances Spence, 63, of Moncton, and formerly of Murray Corner, NB at the Moncton Hospital on Saturday June 29, 2019.

Born in Bathurst, Shirley was the daughter of Vera (nee Briggs) and the late Horace Spence.

Shirley had worked for NB Tel for thirty years.  She had an affinity for elephants and crafts, including knitting, sewing and crocheting.

Shirley was a member of the Telephone Pioneers, and the First United Church, Murray Corner.

She will be sadly missed by her mother, Vera; her brothers, Lipton (Carol), and Blair (Sally); her special friend, Stanley Sears; her nieces and nephews, Carolyn, Richard, Janice, Jordan, and Preston, as well as several great nieces and a nephew.

Besides her father, Shirley was predeceased by her sister-in-law, Joyce, and her niece, Tracy.
