It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Shirley Georgina Linkletter, age 76, of River Hebert East, NS. Shirley passed away on Friday, July 15, 2022 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre.

Born in Amherst, she was a daughter of the late Elva Porter.

Shirley was an armchair athlete, enjoying watching curling and golf on TV. She loved going for drives, going out to restaurants, shopping and was a lover of all animals. Shirley was an avid gardener and a lover of sweets but above all else, she loved her family.

Shirley will be dearly missed by her husband of 62 years Merle "Sam"; daughter Sharon Linkletter-Ryan (Garnet Trenholm) of Fort Lawrence; son Keith Linkletter of River Hebert; brothers Ben (Doris) Corkum of Glenhom and Rick (Jenny) Corkum of New Annan; sister Linda of Springhill; cousin Lester O'Regan of Joggins; sister-in-law Linda (Steve) Quinn of River Hebert East; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her biological mother, she was predeceased by her Mama Ella Porter.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Jillian, Nancy, staff at CRHCC and their extended family for the love and support at the hospital.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, (902 667 8777). A graveside service will take place Wednesday July 20, 2022 at 11am in the Hillside Cemetery in River Hebert.
