Shirley A. Ward, age 82, of Sackville, NB, is now resting in the arms of her Lord and Saviour.  Shirley passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at the Sackville Memorial Hospital.

Born in Sackville, she was a daughter of the late Norman and Anne (Miller) Tower.

Formerly a bindery operator, having worked for the Tribune Press and the Department of Supply and Services, retiring in 1981.  She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She enjoyed food, especially eating desserts.  Any holiday for kids was one of her favorites.  She loved socializing at Mel's Tearoom with her many friends.  She was a regular attendee at Main Street Baptist Church.  Her kindness was well spent, caring for her family, friends, and strangers alike.
