Thank you

TPFFA Members;

With heartfelt sorrow we announce the passing of Shirley Young/Litherland wife of Captain Grant Litherland, R321 C platoon.

Despite stage four cancer she held her head high and continued to spoil her family for almost five years. She was truly an inspiration and proof that beauty can be more than skin deep.

A beautiful soul, Shirley was loved by all those lucky enough to know her. She will be deeply missed by her husband Grant, sons Troy, Robin and Kyle, her daughters-in-law,

Kristin (Troy), and Ashley (Robin) as well as granddaughter Brooke (Troy) and grandson Harrison (Robin).

A celebration of life will be held at a date TBA.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please donate to cancer research and always hug your loved ones.

In Solidarity,
