Shirley Marina Feit
Shirley M. Feit, 80, of Grand Bay-Westfield, passed away peacefully at Bobby’s Hospice, Saint John, on Sunday, March 11, 2018.
Born in Moncton, where she lived for most of her life, she was the daughter of the late Chapin and Margaret (Payne) Crockett.
Shirley loved and enjoyed her time working at Eastern Bakeries for 34 years. She attended the School for the Deaf in Halifax, NS for many years where she met her husband. She had attended the Moncton Wesleyan Church and was very involved with the Deaf Ministry led by Jerry and Erma Gildart. Shirley loved being in the country and had a hobby farm for most of her life. She had a great sense of humor, loved to tease and loved to laugh. Her faith, family, and pets were the most important things in her life. Shirley had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. She took people in to her home who needed a place to stay and provided meals for anyone who dropped by.
Shirley is survived by her husband, Frank Feit, to whom she would have been married to for 58 years in July; her children, Denna Clark (David) and Chapin; her grandchildren, Matthew Clark, Brendan Clark (Melanie Grant), Dylan Feit; great grandson, Cameron Clark and best friend Leona Richard.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff at Bobby’s Hospice and Extra-Mural.
