Obituary

Shirley Maria Needham (nee Feys)
Born July 20, 1949 - Died March 8, 2018.


It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin,
and friend. After a short battle with cancer, Shirley passed away at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary on
March 8, 2018.
She will be deeply missed by her sister Vivian (Marc) LaBreque of Rocky Mountain House, her daughters
Evelyn (Mike) Chapman of High River, March Jesperson of Sardis, BC, grandchildren Dayton Hale
(Stephanie), Holden Chapman and Tara Jesperson. She will also be missed by nephew, Trevor Kuipers
and Grandnephews Brandon and Brett Kuipers and too many cousins and friends to mention.
Shirley was predeceased by her father Marcel Feys, mother Josephine Feys, maternal grandparents
Violet and Joseph Patterson, uncle, Jack Patterson and aunt, Elizabeth Bolduc. Paternal grandfather Alberic Feys, uncles Alois, Constance and Daniel Feys
Shirley enjoyed meeting and talking to people and was always ready to give and share with others. She
loved all kinds of crafts especially cross stitch; she made wonderful pictures for family and friends to
mark special occasions in their lives. She enjoyed carving and went to many of the local carving retreats
until arthritis made it too painful to carve.
Shirley enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles, reading and savoring red wines, sometimes all at the same time.
As well as reading Shirley joined a local authors’ group and wrote and self-published a book on, Starting a Business. She had started a How to Book,” How to Murder Your Husband and Get Away With It”, a
subject people always enjoyed coming up with new imaginative ideas for.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Alliance Church, 5304 57 Street, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta,on April 14, 2018, at 1:00 pm. Pastor Kelly Carnahan officiating. Cremation entrusted to the Rocky Mountain Crematorium, Rocky Mountain House.
