Tuesday May 18th, 2021 – Peacefully, at Amica Retirement Home, with her loving daughter Anne and friend Evelyn by her side, Eulah Irene Shier (nee Parish) passed away just shy of her 102nd Birthday. Beloved wife of the late Howard B. Shier (2007). Dearly loved mother of the late Marilyn Siegrist (Tom), Anne Walker (Jim) and Gerry Shier (Dawn). Cherished grandmother of Sherri (Joe), Cynthia (Dean), Cathy (Neil), Miriam, James (Ximena), Trilby, and Leslie (Chris), Tara, Megin and Steve. Proud great-grandmother to: Douglas, Trevor, Ryan, Chloe, Jake, Jenna, Brian, Ava, Anabelle, Camden, Carmen, Vanessa and Liam. Eulah is predeceased by her parents Ellesworth and Isabelle Parish and her brothers Morley and Lloyd. Eulah will be missed by her many nieces and nephews.
Eulah was a devoted mother, who raised 3 children. A stylish and elegant woman, Eulah was an exceptional homemaker and avid gardener. Wherever she went, Eulah made lifelong friends who she loved to entertain at her home, the cottage or in Florida.
Once her children were grown, Eulah went back to school to become a hairdresser. She managed and ran her own beauty salon in Uxbridge and later managed a motel in Ocala, Florida where she and Howard divided their time.
Eulah was a member of the Trinity United Church and Eastern Star. She touched many hearts with her kindness and compassion. She was always quick to help others in need.
Many friends and family often commented on Eulah’s remarkable memory. She loved telling stories of the old days to friends and family.
Eulah had an indomitable and courageous spirit. She never gave up, stayed positive and always faced life’s challenges head on.
The family would like to thank Eulah’s many friends for their support and kindness throughout the years. Special thanks to Evelyn Murphy for her devoted care and Bonnie Rynard for her many kindnesses. We would also like to thank the Nurses, PSWs and Staff at the Amica Retirement Home where Eulah lived for the last 10 years.
A private family service will be held due to current restrictions. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Box 388 Uxbridge L9P 1M8 (905-852-3073).
