My sincere sympathies for Shirley's passing . We met a long time ago, through her daughter Joan and husband, my cousin Jim Delahunt. I know that close connections were important to Shirley and all their extended family. May she rest in peace knowing so many will remember her. Mary MacKay, Cape Breton

Shirley was one of the most kind and loving people i ever had thr pleasure to know. She was like a second mom to me growing up in Bright. I will always remember the smell of home made bread at the Arsenaults home and the kind lady who treated us all with love and understanding. She truly will be missed by so many. My condolences to the entire clan especially to Joan as we were and remain very good friends after all of these years. Rest among the angels Ma
