Shirley Rubena Henry (nee Sieling), formerly of Bluevale, Ripley and Goderich, died peacefully at Pinecrest Manor, Lucknow, Friday, Nov. 5, 2021, in her 93rd year. Predeceased by husband, Doug; parents, Fred and Alice Sieling; parents-in-law, Howard and Minnie Henry; brother, Raymond Sieling; and sister-in-law, Winnogene Henning (Larry). Much-loved mother of Steve (Terrylynn) and Ted (Vicki); and loving grandmother of Jordan, David and Sarah. She will be missed by her sisters, Kate Logie and Elaine Landers (Robert); sister-in-law, Anne Boyd (Glenn); and many nieces and nephews. Shirley was a real homebody. She loved sewing, knitting, cooking and her boys! She was a strong woman who spoke her mind. She never quit learning, earning her driver's licence in her 60s. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Special thanks to the staff at Pinecrest Manor for making her last days comfortable, and all their kindness to her during her residency. A private graveside service at the Ripley Cemetery will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation; arrangements entrusted to the MacKenzie and McCreath Funeral Home, Ripley. Condolences and memorial on-line at
