Shirley Porter Obituary

Porter, Shirley

It is with great sadness that the family announce the death of our much beloved mother, grammy and great-grammy Shirley Elizabeth Porter on December 27, 2023.  Shirley passed away suddenly and peacefully at home in Fredericton Junction following a brief illness.  She was born November 18, 1935 in Fredericton Junction to the late Dana and Lottie (Tracy) Nason.

She is survived by her daughters; Mandy (Ed) Lewis of Bermuda, Crysta Myrie of Fredericton Junction, and Lauren (Shane Vold) Murji of Okotoks, son-in-law Karim Murji of Edmonton AB, grandsons; Raziq Murji of Edmonton AB, and Jackson (Niki Morehouse) Myrie of Fredericton Junction NB, granddaughter Kassi (Humzey Hussain) Murji of Edmonton AB, great-grandson Khaleed Murji of Irricana AB.  Also survived by her sister Hilda (Lee) Merritt of Fredericton Junction, brothers ; James Nason of Fredericton and Lynn (Jane) Nason of Grand Bay-Westfield.  Many nieces and nephews who will remember her gentle loving spirit with great affection.

Besides her parents, Shirley was predeceased by her husband Leo, her brothers; Karl (Shirley) and Edwin (Marilyn) Nason, sisters-in-law Eva (Percy) Peterson, Sharon Nason, Mae Stewart, and Florence Arbeau, brother-in-law Vincent (Diane) Porter and son-in-law Barry Myrie.

Shirley and Leo spent four decades as equal partners in ministry as clergy with the Salvation Army, serving in churches, Social Services and Leadership across Canada and Bermuda until they retired in 1997 and returned to New Brunswick to live.

Shirley was a beautiful, peaceful lady who made everyone with whom she came in contact feel welcomed and special.  She had a wicked sense of humour and loved to laugh. Many people appreciated her talent as a musician.

The family would appreciate donations in Shirley’s memory to the Fredericton Junction United Baptist Church or Alzheimer's Association of New Brunswick. 

Family and friends are invited to the Fredericton Junction United Baptist Church for visitations January 8, 2024 from 2-4 and 6-8pm.  The Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday January 9, 2024 at 2pm in the Fredericton Junction United Baptist Church with Rev. Maurice Hatfield officiating.
