Shirley Ann Cook

Shirley Ann Cook, 69, of Dorchester, ON passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at Parkwood Hospital in London surrounded by her family after a long struggle with cancer.

Never one to want credit or recognition, Shirley was always willing to help in any situation.  Shirley worked for five years for Kroehler's in Stratford and then for 34 years at General Motors in London.

She was a Lutheran and a beautiful person inside and out.
