SHIRLEY WARD

Sadly, Shirley Ward, departed this world on Monday, January 25, 2019.

Shirley was a very strong, independent woman. She pursued her degree at the University of Washington in Russian languages, was a voracious reader of books, lover of art, history and a stern advocate for diversity and inclusion. She also loved to cook, sail and play tennis with her husband, Don.

She could be tough, but she could also be incredibly compassionate; a brilliant mind. If I could sum up her life’s perspective in today’s world, I would think it would have something to do with “building bridges instead of walls”. She taught us to always seek to understand rather than be understood, and to look up and appreciate that which was going on around us at that moment.

Shirley is remembered with love by her three sons, Steve, Bruce, (Debbie), and Brian, (Marie). Shirley also has 7 grandchildren- Carson and Calla; Devin and Jenna, Lindsey, Erica, and Alli, respectfully.

We will miss her very much. In lieu of flowers or donations to a cause, we request that everyone spend more time with their parents!
