Now safe in the arms of her Lord.
Our hearts are heavy as we announce the passing of a wonderful woman. Shirley Lorraine Micks ( nee Mason ) after a brave battle with cancer on Thursday October 11, 2018. Beloved wife of the late Jim Micks. Loving mother and friend to Linda Micks and James and Heather Micks. Devoted Gramma to Leslie McGrayne ( Cherrie ), Bobby McGrayne ( Donna ), Todd McGrayne, Mike McGrayne ( Lorrie ), Donald Micks ( Collina ) and Charity Marks. Loving Great Gramma to eleven great grandkids and one great great granddaughter. Born in Sault Ste. Marie in 1934, Shirley was the daughter of the late Kay Mason ( Smith ) and Bill Mason. Dear sister to Barb Mahoney of San Bernadino California, and the late Wilma McMullen ( Robert ) of Sault Ste. Marie. Sister-in-law to the late Wallace Micks, Tom Micks, Ruby Ulhman, Ev Bennett and Alberta Powley. Lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews and friends. Blessed by her Christian families both in Canada and the United States. We will all miss you each and every day. Your memory will never fade away.

Memorial contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society or Maison McCulloch Hospice, Sudbury would be appreciated by the family.
