In loving memory of Shirley Ann Dooley who sadly passed away very suddenly. Shirley suffered a heart attack on 9th April 2022
Born in Calcutta on 16th May 1940, the middle of 3 children, Shirley was a free spirit and came to England at the tender age of 20. In no time at all she met and fell in love with Frank. Their love story began the moment they met and they were married just 18 months later.
The pair moved to the Midlands and raised two children, Alison and Gavin.
Shirley was kind and generous and understanding. She was a loving wife and mother, a favourite aunt and a great friend.
Shirley was many things. She was a beauty queen, a keen badminton and tennis player. She kept busy at the markets alongside Frank and his honey, by making jams and chutneys. There was never a dull moment.
She loved to travel, she played a good game of cards enjoyed her granddaughter, Sasha. She was devoted to her family and was always there to lend a hand or give advice when asked. She adored her great grandchildren Aliana and Birch.
Shirley was a colourful and flamboyant spirit who loved a bit a sparkle. It would be her wish that we celebrate her life with colour. For this reason we ask that everyone wears something colorful for her send off.
Shirley loved flowers and plants. They brought more colour to her life. We have created a page to donate to the British Heart Foundation or flowers are also welcome.
The funeral is at Gornal Wood Crematorium at 12:20 on Tuesday 10th May. Please join us at the Bell at Trysull
