Shirley Schmirler Obituary, Death – The Sandra Schmirler Foundation wishes to express their deepest condolences to Shirley Schmirler’s family and friends on the passing of Shirley Schmirler. Shirley was the mother of three and the wife of Art, who has since passed away. Her children’s names are Sandra, Carol, and Beverley. They, along with their family and loved ones, are in our thoughts and prayers.
Shirley was a treasured member of our team and a dedicated volunteer who contributed countless hours to our Foundation ever since its inception in 2001. Shirley was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, and she was a familiar face at Scotties Tournaments of Hearts. In addition to being the mother of a three-time winner of the Scotties, she was also a passionate volunteer and fundraiser for our Foundation’s objective to assist infants who were either born prematurely, too small, or sick.
In Glaslyn, Saskatchewan, on a natural two-sheeter, Shirley received her curling instruction. Before coming to Regina in order to assist Sandra in taking care of her daughters, she was a member of the Biggar Curling Club up to the year 2000. She represented the province of Saskatchewan at the Canadian Masters in 2006, curling at the Tartan Curling Club in Regina, Saskatchewan. It was an incredible honor for her to always be able to wear the Saskatchewan green.
Shirley has been an invaluable source of insight and direction for the Sandra Schmirler Foundation for the past two decades, and its Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers will miss her tremendously for both of these qualities.
The love and support of her family was Shirley’s top priority, just as it was for Sandra. We will always be guided by the values that Shirley established in her family, including a love for family, a dedication to hard work, and a strong work ethic.
