Shirley Lee MAGNUS

MAGNUS, Shirley Lee Mississauga It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of our Mother on Monday, November 27, 2017. Born in Jamaica on November 28, she was the daughter of the late Ivan and Vera Magnus. As a young woman, Shirley first immigrated to England and then to Toronto, Canada where she raised three sons. She helped others her entire life, working as a registered nurse until her retirement. A woman of fierce character, she returned to school to pursue a Master's degree in Psychology while working full time to support her three young boys. Despite struggles with her health, Shirley continued her lifelong pursuit of excellence and even authored a book entitled Triumph, Never Give Up in 2000. A devoted mother, raising her boys to be strong, independent, successful men was her raison d'être. Shirley joins her father, mother and sister Bernice in the warmth of God's embrace. She will be forever loved and deeply missed by her sons, Patrick, Basil and Dean. She is also survived by her sister Evis, brothers Robert and Silburn, daughter-in-law Lisa (Basil) and her grandchildren, Cecile Elise and Xavier, whom she adored. We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Sapir, Dr. Bector, Dr. Lo and Dr. Park for the attentive care that they provided to Shirley over the years and to her personal support care provider, Yolanda, who was truly an angel in a time of great need. Fiery to the last, we will miss our mother's strength of spirit, wicked sense of humour and unwavering faith in God. We will forever be grateful for her sacrifice and support, and take solace in the knowledge that she is at peace. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Shirley's name to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Words of comfort for the family may be forwarded to the Turner & Porter Peel Chapel (turnerporter.ca/locations.html).
