It is with sadness that we announce the death of Shirley Merine Purdy, 93, of Sackville on Monday, April 26, 2021.  Born in Sackville, Shirley was a daughter of the late George and Annie Mae (Sterling) Thompson.

Shirely was employed for many years at Mt. Allison University. She enjoyed spending time in her flower gardens and shopping; sometimes to buy, and sometimes just to look.

Shirley will be sadly missed by her sons, David (Nancy) Purdy and Douglas (Paulette) Purdy both of Sackville, NB, and four grandchildren Michelle (Brian Maxwell) Purdy, David (Rita) Purdy,  Christopher (Kelly) Purdy and Amanda (Ryan Estabrooks) Purdy, as well as eight great grandchildren, Lily and Simon Maxwell, Katelyn and Cassie Purdy, Jake and Alex Purdy, Hudson and Barrett Estabrooks.

Besides her parents and her husband, Arthur Purdy, Shirley was predeceased by six sisters, Margaret, Isabel, Viola, Helen, Bernice and May.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300).  Cremation has taken place and a graveside service for Shirley will be held in the Sackville Cemetery at a later date to be announced.
