It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our dear Wife, Mother Nonna and sister, Shirley Maureen Berdusco.

Shirley died peacefully at the Trail Regional Hospital on January 6, 2012 surrounded by family and friends. Shirley was born to Mike and Susan Ivanisko on July 3, 1940 in Michel- Natal B.C where she grew up.

Once graduated, Shirley became a secretary, working for various companies in Vancouver and Coleman. In 1962, she married Romeo Berdusco, she then became a stay at home mom raising their three children. Once her children were raised, Shirley re -entered the workplace working in Food Services for the School District until her retirement.

Shirley loved her family, relaxing at the lake, her flower garden and most importantly, over 25 years of watching her beloved Trail Jr. Smoke Eaters where she could be heard loud and clear right up until her last game. She was also a member of the Sisters of Colombo.

She will be forever missed by her husband Romeo of 49 years, three sons Collin (Teresa), Craig (Susan), and Kevin (Lisa) and five grand children Alyssa, Kaitlyn, Conner, Teagan and Tanner.
