Shirley Lynne Stroobants (Nee Hygaard)

November 28 1949 – June 27 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Shirley Lynne Stroobants, 70, who left us peacefully with her daughter by her side on the evening of June 27, 2020.

Shirley was a fiercely independent, hard working woman, with a passion for her family’s history. She was born November 28, 1949, a daughter of the late Jack and Mae Hygaard and grew up as one of eight children in Winnipeg before moving to Selkirk, MB where she enjoyed many years creating memories with friends and neighbours, and countless summer camping trips with her grandsons whom she treasured the most. She eventually returned to Winnipeg, where she spent her last 11 years working at Canada Cartage.  

Besides her devotion to her grandchildren, Shirley loved bargain hunting on weekends with her sister Lynda and long chats on the phone with her sister Laurie. Her infectious laugh will be missed by many. 

Shirley leaves to mourn her children, Karen and Paul, grandchildren Eric and Austin, sisters Lynda, Laurie and Audrey (Bob), brothers Frank, Scott and Stuart, (Christine) numerous relatives, and her grandpups Ollie and Hennessy. She was predeceased by her sister Kathy. 

At her request, there will be no service. A private memorial may be held at a later date. Shirley’s family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Concordia Hospital N3E for their care during her final stay.
