Shirley Cotton

June 17, 1929 – August 21, 2013

Shirley was predeceased by her first husband Alan Scott in 1979; her twin sister Aileen Thompson; siblings, Frank, Tom and Joan. She is survived by her loving husband of 30 years, Ken Cotton; children, Greg (Linden) Scott, Carol (Wayne) Ingalls; stepchildren, David Cotton, Lisa Masters; grandchildren, Mackenzie, Brody, Kara and Ryan and Devon; sister, Marjorie, and nieces and nephews.

Shirley was born in Toronto, Ontario, and worked for a number of years as a comptometer operator at Sears.  She moved to the Okanagan with her family in 1976, eventually settling in Qualicum Beach with her husband Ken. She was an avid member of the Qualicum Seniors Centre. Her smile and great sense of humour will be missed.
