After 34 years Shirley says, “It’s Time!”
Shirley Anderson has seen many changes in her years of service at Maryhill, from washing clothes or baking cookies to caring for the elderly and playing the piano she has done it all! Jokingly we would compare her to the mailman; neither rainnor sleet nor snow”, kept her away from work. When winter came she automatically had her bag packed and when the weather looked bad she would stay at her mother’s or sleep in a spare bed we had available at the facility. She always had a smile on her face and would welcome guests to Maryhill with a cup of coffee in her hand and a willingness to help.
On Fridays, residents would gather around the piano to listen to her lead her sing-a-long. Shirley knows she is going to miss everyone at Maryhill but she is looking forward to spending more time with family and enjoying some well deserved R & R!
Please join us in celebrating Shirley’s retirement on Friday the 25th of April at 2:00 at Maryhill Manor.
