Obituary of Shirley Bond
BOND, Shirley peacefully with family by her side at Gateway Haven Nursing Home Saturday morning July 31, 2021. Our Mother will be forever loved and in the minds of her children Sally of Toronto, Joel of Mississauga, Jeffrey (Colleen) of Oliphant and Johnny Scott of Brampton. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Jason (Mallory), James, Zoe and Janice and remembered by her nieces and nephew. Dear sister in-law of Helen Smith and lifelong treasured friend of Margery Cranford and Gord Barnard. Shirley was predeceased by her husband Jim (1986), brother Jack (2014) and parents Frankie (1991) and Lorne Smith (1974).
Our Mother grew up in Mount Forest, graduated from the University of Toronto and raised her family with husband Jim in Port Credit. Mum instilled a love of being on the water to her children at home in Port Credit and at our Grandparent's island cottage in Oliphant. Over the years, Shirley enjoyed her time spent with her bridge club in Orchard Heights and her Toronto craft group raising money for 'hearing' guide dogs. She loved beautiful things and cherished flowers, birds and Lake Huron sunsets.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at Gateway Haven Nursing Home for their care and compassion.
