Shirley Ann Keddy, 83 of Aldersville, passed away peacefully on September 10, 2022 with her loving family by her side in the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville. Born in the Forties on September 26, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Norman and Bessie Hiltz.
Shirley’s first job was at Canada Foods in Kentville, after which she changed jobs to work at the Ross Farm Museum for 34-years. Shirley was also devoted to her faith and took care of the books for the St. James Anglican Church in Aldersville and president of the New Ross Golden Age Club. Shirley enjoyed talking to everyone she met, loved square dancing, playing cards, planning lunches and food for weddings (making beautiful wedding cakes), and enjoyed going to bingo.
Most of Shirley’s enjoyment came from the pride and joy she held for her family. She adored her husband, Gardner, her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. And, they all loved and adored her just as much.
