Shirley RichardsonFrom Alison Archer, Shirley’s daughter:

With great sadness, I wish to let you know, that my mother Shirley Richardson, wife of David Richardson, passed away peacefully on Saturday 15th February after a short period in hospital.

We had hoped that a series of chemotherapy infusions would minimise the tumour but she was not well enough to undergo this treatment. 

Mum had a very wonderful life and even as recently as late January had been to the movies and an outing with Dad.  She is now with her Lord.

A service of Celebration and thanksgiving for her life is to be held on Thursday 20th Feb at 1pm in the Thornleigh Hilcrest Uniting Church, 1-3 Paling St, Thornleigh. A PowerPoint of photos will commence about 12:45pm.

Mum has requested no floral tributes.

Yours sincerely

Alison Archer

    From M’OC:

    Sincere condolences, David, on your very sad loss. The two of you seemed like an everlasting fixture in the activities of the OTC of old and the more recent OTVA.

    While Gay and I were on not much more than nodding terms with Shirley, we shall miss the pleasantness that she invariably imparted on the various OTVA function she attended over the years.

    We shall remember her as one of life’s treasures.
