Obituary of Shirley Clayton


(nee Robinson)


Passed away on Thursday, May 3, 2018 in Toronto at the age of 93 following a stroke and brief hospitalization.


Shirley is reunited with her loving husband Western, infant daughter Nancy and grandson Donny.  All taken from her far too soon.  Also predeceased by her proud parents Wesley and Olive (Biddle).  Her younger sister June Reis who lives in Early, Iowa is still spry and energetic, and was extraordinarily compassionate and fun through all the years.  Rejoicing in her memory are her children Barry, Donald, James (Lynore) and Judith (Mark).  Shirley was lucky enough to see her grandchildren Dennis, Nancy, Bryan, Laura, Stephen and Jessica become fine young adults and to enjoy her great “grandbabies” Evelyn, Leigha and Reece.  Thanks to her son Donald, her dream of staying in her own home was realized.


Many thanks to Dr. Douglas Goodall for his continuing care and to all the staff at St. Michael’s Hospital for keeping her comfortable in her final days.


At Mom’s wish, our family celebrated her passing in private.  A donation to a charity of your choice in memory of our mom would be welcomed.  Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through
