Shirley Rubina Willerton

b. July 7, 1929
d. November 28, 1935 - Plumas, MB

Shirley died in a house fire. It was apparently a very cold night. Her older sister Eileen was staying over at Uncle Jo and Aunt Pearl's house. Her sister Fern hid under her bed, but Tom was finally able to get her out from under it and down a ladder. The hired lady, a very large woman, had passed out on the floor, and it took Tom quite awhile to get her to the window. Shirley had been sleeping in a bedroom at the top of the stairs where all the flames were and her father could not get near the bedroom.
