Shirley Diane Geddes (nee Boyce)

March 9, 1951 - May 14, 2020

Peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family and dear friend Lynn Metheral, passed away after a brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Shirley was the loving daughter of the late Fred and Almeda (nee Tyler) Boyce of Collingwood. Devoted wife of Steve for 51 years.

Loving mother of Stacy (Adrian) and Jody. Beloved sister of Steven (Judy) and Robert (Penny). Adoring grandmother of Spencer, Christopher, Kirsten, Grace, Abbey, Ben. Predeceased by her grandson Tyler Beaumont (2006). Dearly loved sister-in-law of Terry (Marsha), Colleen (Ken), and Lorna (Lewis) and the late Malcolm. Loving niece of June Tyler. Proud aunt of Brandi, Lyndsay, Jennifer, Kyle, Ryan, Krista, John, Cheri, Jay, and Kerry. Treasured friend to so many. Special thanks to friend Lynn Metheral for all the care and kindness she extended to Shirley and the Geddes family during this difficult time.

Shirley worked at the Collingwood General and Marine hospital for over 31 years. Her kind, gentle, and nurturing qualities were so appreciated by all who knew her. Shirley loved life and had many hobbies, including biking, gardening, and spending time with her husband, Steve, and her grandchildren at Sunset Point. She also loved animals and enjoyed spending many days in the sunshine with her horse, Hugo.

As per Shirley’s request, cremation has taken place. The family will hold a private Celebration of Life at a later date. Her passion, dedication, and love for life will be kept alive through her family and her many friends who will cherish her memory forever.

Your life was a blessing,

your memory a treasure,

you are loved beyond words,

And missed beyond measure.

In honour of Shirley, memorial contributions may be made to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, Hospice Georgian Triangle, Georgian Triangle Humane society, or to a charity of choice.

Steve, so sorry to hear about Shirley's passing. We had lots of fun as kids. She was always such a nice, caring person. We shared a love for animals and especially horses. Shirley was always happy, and I'm sure she enjoyed having Hugo. I was glad for her when you told me she finally got a horse. My condolences to you and your family, her brother Steve and Judy, and their family, and to all the rest of Shirley's family. Till we meet again Shirley, rest in peace. Peggy and Bill McArthur

My deepest sympathies go out to you Steve and family. Shirley was especially kind to my mom and I will never forget her homemade muffins that crossed the street and kept us all going in my mom's last days. I'm certain there are many touched by such a sweet lady.
