After retiring from General Motors, Shirley started at St. John's, Blackstock in October 2012 as their Parish Administrator. In January, 2014 she started began working at Ascension and looked after both churches until St. John's closed in November 2017. After spending all my time in General Motors Vehicle Distribution, this was a completely new venture for her.
Shirley is grateful to the Rev. Jim Blackmore and Rev. John for their patience and teaching as she became accustom to a different kind of work. Shirley enjoys working with the people here at Ascension and helping with their fund raising. She welcomes new challenges and learning new ways. In her spare time she loves to work on machine embrodiery and read.
