Shirley June BRACKETT

Shirley June BRACKETT (Coughlin), 83, of Vernon, passed away peacefully January 19 at the North Okanagan Hospice.

She was born June 6, 1928 in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario and received her RN from Grace Hospital in Windsor, Ontario in 1950. She married Benson David BRACKETT on March 17, 1950 in Windsor, Ontario.

Shirley was first and foremost a mother – to her three sons and her treasured grandchildren and great-grandchildren; to her patients at various hospital and nursing homes; and to her many students from her years teaching nursing.

She is survived by her husband Ben, three sons David (Denise), Jim (Pat), and Tom (Lori); eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

Special thanks to the staff at VJH and the North Okanagan Hospice for their wonderful care, kindness and compassion.

A Celebration of Life will be held later, at a time to be announced. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
