New Glasgow - Shirley Agnes Reid, age 83, formerly of 511 High St., New Glasgow and Ivey’s Terrace Nursing Home, passed away December 12, 2017 in the Palliative Care Unit of the Aberdeen Hospital with family at her side. Born May 28, 1934, she was a daughter of the late Albert Patrick “Nonnie” and Theresa (Schrader) Morgan. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Charles “Chuck” Reid; sister, Florence Campbell; brothers: James “Jimmie” Morgan and Kenneth “Kenny” Morgan. She is survived by a son, Kevin Fraser Reid; daughter, Theresa Lynn “Terry” Reid; sister-in-law, Betty Reid. For many years, she was a custodial and housekeeping employee at the Roseland Theatre, Tara Motel, Canada Permanent Trust Building and MacGregor Building. She also worked as a clerk at the old Woolworth’s Store in Downtown New Glasgow. She, along with Charles, were tireless advocates for the mentally handicapped. In their younger days, they never missed a “Special Olympics” competition, cheering on the athletes. She was a member and sang in the choir at First United Church in Trenton, and worked in the nursery. The family wants to send heartfelt thanks to the staff at Ivey’s Terrace Nursing Home, Glen Haven Manor, along with the Palliative Care Unit and Emergency Department of the Aberdeen Hospital, where Shirley received excellent care and comfort. Her “guardian angel” Agnes was a ray of sunshine in her day, and Vivian Breen was a breath of light with her hearty humour. Visitation from 1-1:45pm Friday in First United Church, Trenton, with funeral service at 2pm, Rev. Wade Reppert officiating. Burial will be in Hillside Cemetery. Contributions in Shirley’s memory can be made to Summer Street Industries Foundation or First United Church (General Memorial Fund). Arrangements are under the direction of the R.H. Porter Funeral Home, New Glasgow. Condolences may be sent by visiting: www.rhporter.ca
