Shirley C. Paul

The family of Shirley C. Paul is sad to announce her passing on Oct. 21, 2013. Shirley courageously and with dignity and grace fought a valiant battle with multiple sclerosis and cancer.

Shirley was born in Canada where she spent her youth.

She moved to California and fell in love with it, living the rest of her life here. She earned her B.A. in anthropology and art at UC Santa Barbara.

She will be missed, and always be remembered for her adventurous spirit, creativity and her love of nature, art and learning.

Shirley was predeceased by her father, John Pearce, mother Anne Pearce, and sister, Ann Russell. She is survived, and will be missed, by her brother, John Pearce, brother-in-law Richard Russell, nieces Stacey Robinson, Kristen Russell, and Carolyne Rickett, nephew Mathew Rickett and their families, as well as many other family members, and wonderful friends, whom she considered family.

At Shirley’s request, there was no formal memorial. Should anyone wish, a contribution to their favorite charity may be made in lieu of flowers.
