Obituary

Shirley Williamson, born September 2, 1927, in Montreal, Quebec, died peacefully May 14, 2021, at Bluewater Health in Sarnia, Ontario at the age of 93.

Predeceased by her husband Leslie Williamson of Sarnia, Ontario, and survived by their four children; Alan Williamson of Kitchener, Ontario, Carol (nee Williamson) McKerracher of Sarnia, Ontario and her children Erin McKerracher of Guelph, Ontario, and Geoff McKerracher and wife Chloe of Sarnia, Ontario, their children Cameron, Carter, and Cole of Sarnia Ontario, Craig Williamson, his wife Ipek of Sarnia, Ontario, sons, Colm Williamson of Kitchener, Ontario, and Connor Williamson of Toronto, Ontario, his step-son Ali Dincgor of Toronto, Ontario, Peter Williamson of Sarnia, Ontario and his son Alec Williamson of Sarnia, Ontario.

Shirley is survived by her sister Norma (nee Voce) Cruickshank of Toronto, Ontario, and predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Cruickshank, and their children Karyn Cruickshank of Toronto, Ontario, and Ian Cruickshank of Whistler, BC. Also survived by her brother James Voce and wife Shirley of Mississauga, Ontario, and their children, Susan (nee Voce) Dudas of Acton, Ontario, James (Jim) Voce of Woodstock, Ontario, Robert Voce of Barrie, Ontario, and Nancy Voce of Mississauga, Ontario. Also survived by Cousin Margaret (nee Scott) Whelan and predeceased by her husband George of Montreal, Quebec. Shirley is predeceased by her parents, (Sydney) James and Alice (nee Yearsley) Voce of Montreal, Quebec, Step-Mother Eva (nee Campbell) Voce of Morin Heights, Quebec, sister Grace (nee Voce) Deruchie and her husband Reginald of Montreal, Quebec, their children, Gail (nee Deruchie) Kivela and her husband Harvey of Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Glenn Deruchie of Rutland, Vermont, brother Gerald (Joe) Voce of Montreal, Quebec.

Shirley was a devoted daughter, a loving sister, a caring Mother, a happy grandmother and great-grandmother, and a loyal friend to many.

She was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec along with four siblings, and enjoyed a connection to a larger extended family that had emigrated to Canada from England in 1906.
Among her favourite activities growing up were; swimming, skiing, biking (when allowed), cottaging, music (swing), and dancing. From a young age, she learned to knit and continued to enjoy this activity into her eighties.

Some of her favourite memories, as a late teen and younger adult, were of ski trips to Morin Heights, Quebec on the weekends with family and friends, and staying at the Campbell Farm.
Throughout her twenties, before her marriage in 1957, Shirley had several employers, but she always spoke highly about her position with the Hudson Bay Company in the Fur Department – a great job and employer she fondly recalled.

A devoted and busy Mom with her four children, Shirley provided them with a loving and happy home – when the children were in high school she worked in the family business in Sarnia. Later in her working life, she enjoyed working for her niece’s family business in Ajax Ontario.

Shirley very much enjoyed traveling – most of which occurred in her retirement years. She especially loved her trips to the UK, New Orleans, and North Carolina with her sister Norma and friends.
She had a great love for children and was a happy and positive influence on her grandchildren, and great-grand-children in both Sarnia and Kitchener. She also was a nanny to her niece Gail’s young children (Kym & Kristen) for several years in Pickering Ontario.

Shirley was very sociable and she made, and kept, many friends over the years from Montreal, Sarnia, Pickering, and Kitchener.

Finally, there are two other things my Mom enjoyed greatly – hockey and coffee. Her love of hockey began as a teenager going to the Montreal Junior Canadiens games – at that time this team provided the talent for the NHL club (she saw the young stars). Shirley’s drink of choice was definitely coffee – she enjoyed a “cup of joe” anywhere and anytime – a double-double please.

Shirley will be missed by those lives she has touched – rest in peace.

Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
