Dear Members:

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Shirley Brooks-Purkis on January, 23 2020.

Shirley joined the Faculty Women’s Club (Queen’s Women’s Association) in 1940/41 year at the invitation of Elizabeth Wallace, our founder.  Shirley was an active member and generously donated her time until the past twenty or so years.

On November,19 2019, the Executive sponsored a party for Shirley to celebrate her 100th birthday (22 November).  Shirley was her usual vibrant and talkative self.  Her infectious smile will be warmly remembered by all who knew her.

Valerie Klassen

President, Queen’s Women’s Association
