Shirley Welling passed away peacefully early this morning at the Brantford General Hospital. She was in her 82nd year. She was the beloved wife of Stephen Welling for the last 33 years. She is predeceased by her parents Bonnie Lockhart and Willard Blakey, her 2 siblings Ronald and Joan Marie both who died at birth. She will be remembered by many nieces and nephews, In-laws, friends, and the many, many wedding couples whose ceremonies she officiated at. After 80 years packed full of adventures, love, and community service, our wonderful Shirley has passed away. With heavy hearts, she has left a huge hole in the life of her husband of 33 years, her extended family, and friends. Reverend Welling performed many marriage ceremonies, alongside her husband, and inspired young couples to live their best lives. She was a mentor to many and her smile was contagious. Shirley had diverse career opportunities, from administrative assistant to private enterprise, and she excelled at them all. She was an avid reader, loved to sew, and was master chef in the kitchen. Shirley gave us strength in times of trouble, wisdom in uncertainty, and shared her love in times of happiness. She loved life completely and lived it intensely. Shirley’s joy for life transmitted to those around her and we will never forget the sparkle in those unforgettable eyes. Until they meet again, Stephen especially, will continue to take delight in her brilliance and her spirit. Due to Covid-19 restrictions a private family gathering will take place followed by a service. You are invited to join the service via live stream on Friday, February 19th at 1:00p.m. Please visit Shirley’s portion of the website to view the stream under the “Photos & Videos” tab.
