Obituary of Shirley Anne Ross

It is with great sadness and cherished memories that we announce the peaceful passing of Shirley Ross; beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. After a brief battle with cancer, Shirley left us with her family by her bedside on Jan 14,2023 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre. Shirley was born April 10, 1950 in Yorkton, SK to Albert & Kay Baerr (nee Melnychuk). She had an older sister Lorraine, and younger brother Bill. Shirley met Bob in 1965 and they were married on March 25,1967. Their daughter Shelly was born in May 1967 and Charlotte in Nov 1969. They began their life together in Saskatchewan then moved to BC but always ended up back in SK to be close with family and friends. Shirley is known for her generous smile and personality. She always dressed fashionably with her gold clothes, shoes or accessories. She was an amazing cook and loved to host special occasions at home or the lake with enough food to feed the entire neighborhood. Whether it was being in Section J at the Yorkton Terrier hockey games, or on their deck at the lake watching the Roughriders play; Shirley was cheering on her team with many family and friends around her. For the past 20 years, Shirley loved being out at their campsite at Rickers Campground with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren joining on the weekends. From May to October the memories were made at the lake fishing and socializing. She leaves to mourn her passing and to celebrate her life, her loving husband Bob and her beloved daughters Shelly of Yorkton; Charlotte (Sid) Koteck of Yorkton; her Grandaughter Kelsey (Tom) Turcotte of Yorkton, Grandson Ryley (Marlee) Popowich of Revelstoke; her precious Great-Grandchildren Khalyssa, Royal and Blue of Yorkton; her brother Bill (Judy) Baerr of Rhein; and numerous family and friends of whom she touched all their hearts in a special way. Losing Shirley is a huge loss for all who knew her. Service Details.
