Shirley obit photos011 1Shirley Margaret Livingston (nee Presley)

July 15, 1923 – July 12, 2017

It is with deep sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, grandmother, & great-grandmother, Shirley Margaret Livingston, on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 in Carman, MB a few days shy of her 94th birthday.

Shirley was predeceased by her husband, Donald A. Livingston, her brother, Bill Presley, and her daughters, Susan Livingston, Beverly Zilke, & Joyce Smith. 

Left to cherish Mom’s memory are her children, Peter “Doc” (Judy), Paul (Barbara), sons-in-law Doug Zilke & Kelvin Smith.   Shirley has 10 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.

Shirley was born & raised in Hamilton, ON. A chance meeting with a young airman, the love of her life, Don Livingston, brought her to Morden, MB.  Together they built a wonderful life & family in Morden.   Shirley & Don had a successful hardware & furniture business and were involved in many community organisations.  Shirley was a committed loving mother.  Fresh baking was always on hand for the children & the many friends who were always welcome.  Shirley loved the opera & classical music.

In retirement, to the surprise of everyone, Shirley & Don moved to Parksville, BC where they made many new friends and enjoyed the island lifestyle.   Shirley & Don travelled to many parts of the world, including a trip to the Great Wall of China.

With the passing of Don in 2011, Shirley moved back to Manitoba.  The family would like to thank the Boyne Lodge staff and the many other caregivers for all the wonderful care for our mother the past 6 years.

The funeral is to be held on August 18, 2017 at 1:00 PM at Doyle’s Funeral Home in Carman.  In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to BVHC New PCH Capital Project, Box 1644, Carman, MB, R0G 0J0 or a charity of your choice.
