Shirley Eileen Qua Williams, born March 7th, 1921 of St. George, beloved
wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in her sleep on
16th July, 2020 surrounded by family near and far. Pre-deceased by her
father and mother, Robert and Marjorie Qua and her sister Molly. She
will be sadly missed by her loving husband of 60 years, Ted and their children, Ted
and his wife Jessica, Carly and her partner Thomas, Gary and his wife
Dawn and grandchildren Paul, Quinn and Robert.

Born in Toronto, Shirley was a graduate of the University of Toronto obtaining
a Bachelor of Arts in 1942. She spent two years in England after the war with
the Canadian Red Cross at the East Grinstead burn unit. This is where ground-breaking
work was done by Sir Archibald McIndoe with the Guinea Pig Club a famous patient
support group.

She was active in the Women’s Institute, worked as a lunch mother and was a
founding member of the Save our School committee in St. George. She also
worked as the St. George correspondent for the Ayr News for many years.
After retirement, Shirley enjoyed playing bridge weekly and travelling to Europe,
the U.S. and Canada with her husband Ted.

Shirley was well loved and respected for her interest, wisdom, sense of humour
and wonderful smile. She loved books and the Toronto Blue Jays but also much more.
She was a friend and she will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

As wished by Shirley, cremation has already taken place. A celebration of life will take
place later when everyone can be together. Those who wish to honour her may donate to the
Brant Community Healthcare System BCHS.

Online condolences and donations may be arranged through or by contacting WM. KIPP 519 442 3061.

Thinking of all of you with sympathy during the loss of your mom. I have many fond memories of the various roles she had in the community and as a neighbour. I treasure a special piece in my china cabinet which was given to us as a wedding gift. Although I have not seen your mom in a long time, I remember her smile and quiet ways. Take comfort in your memories.
