Obituary for Shirley Skiba
Shirley AKA Nanny Skiba was born on October 21, 1925 in Halifax. She was predeceased by her husband Stan ( aka Skiba ) parents Elizabeth and Herbert Murphy, brothers Stanley, Gerald, Ronald, Donald and Bobby, and son Bruce. She is survived by her sister Barbara, brother Philip ( Cheryl ) daughter Sharon ( Mike ), daughter-in-law Janet, grandchildren Heather, Lisa, Jennifer, Kristopher and Charlotte and great grandchildren Hannah, Riley, Kaelynn, Samantha, Quinn and James.
Shirley lived a very active and independent life and was a permanent fixture at the flea markets from the Forum, Penhorn and Sackville. She was a force to be reckoned with and could swindle her way into any deal. She loved to dance and even won dance contests in her early years.
Shirley also loved to travel and has endless stories to tell about her adventures. She had the gift of gab and loved a good “friendly debate”.
Shirley may have been small in size, but she sure was mighty and feisty. She will be missed dearly by many.
