Obituary of Shirley Isabelle Moats

Please share a memory of Shirley to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Shirley Isabelle Moats, late of Regina, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 30, 2024 at the age of 73 years. She was predeceased by her parents, Leroy and Isabella Moats; and brother-in-law, Dave MacDermott.

Shirley grew up on the family farm near Gray, SK. and attended school first in Gray, then staying in residence in Luther College for grade 11 and 12, followed by Success Business College. Her entire working career was spent in accounting departments: first with Houston Willoughby, then Saskatchewan Crop Insurance, and Saskatchewan Highways where she eventually retired. Shirley liked to bake and made giant chiffon cakes when farm fresh eggs were available. She could craft anything: sewing intricate doll clothes and full-size costumes, beautiful crocheted items from bedspreads to intricate decorations and plastic canvas items. In her youth, she had been a member of the Great Plains 4-H Club, curled, and up until her passing was a member of the Wesley Knitting Group.

Shirley is survived by her much loved son, Michael Moats and his partner Coden Hamilton; who she referred to as “her Guardian Angel”; sister Catherine (Brian) Drew and their children: Michelle (David) Parker, and Petrea (Alan) McCoy, Travis Drew; sister Sheila (Dave) MacDermott and her children: Colin MacDermott and Sharon (Chris) Wood; sister Elaine (Barry) Good; numerous great nieces and nephews and extended family members - all of whom she held very dear.
