Shirley May Bond (nee Goudy)
Passed on December 31, 2020
December 29, 1950 – December 31, 2020. It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Shirley May Bond at the age of 70 years of Teulon, MB.
She is survived by her two daughters Crystal and her children Taylor and Coby; Ginger (Dale) and son Bryson; Brothers: Art, Allan, Randy, sister Diana and their families.
Shirley was predeceased by her husband Bert of 47 years, her parents Donald and Peggy, brother Roy, sister Barbara and grandson Jorden. Shirley was raised on a farm at Balmoral, MB. where her love of farm animals began and continued throughout her life. She liked to play sports and was pretty competitive. She excelled at curling, baseball and basketball where she brought home numerous trophies. When attending her kids sport events, you knew she was there by all her cheering that came from the bleachers!
Shirley took job opportunities to work summers in Ontario with her sister Diana. Family meant the world to her. She earned the nick name “Rowdy Goudy” growing up, as she was known to stick up for her family if needed. Shirley was a hard worker since a young age and she met so many people along the way. She even kept in contact with some of them until her passing. She started her career at the old Gunton School then went onto the University of Manitoba until her retirement in 2007. She loved retirement but it didn’t last long as she went back to her farm life of raking and baling hay, soil sampling and tending to cattle. Shirley enjoyed bingo, going for road tours with her dearest friend Cindy, watching curling, and playing card games – we are sure Lyle and Nora will be waiting for Mom with the Skip-Bo cards!
Shirley was the best Grandma to Taylor, Coby and Bryson they were her world. Taylor and Grandma shared their love of baking and cooking together, Coby bonded with Grandma while going for rides down backroads and talking for hours, and Bryson’s endless boxes of smarties and grandma hugs. Grandma would pick them all up without notice and say jump in the car we are going for ice cream! Shirley was one of a kind, she had a great sense of humor, was full of witty comments, a contagious laugh and will be missed by so many.
No formal service will be held.
In the last few months our lives were changed drastically losing Dad and now Mom, we are so thankful for all the hugs we received from them.
Thank you to friends and family for all the phone calls, texts, food, messages and Ken Loehmer for his compassion and guidance.
In memory of Shirley take your loved ones out for an ice cream and go for a drive!
Crystal, Ginger and family - My Deepest condolences. Your mom was the one that told me about this little town called Teulon which I made my home in the last 30 years!
To Shirley's Family and siblings, You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Shirley and Bert are together again. They have always been kind, generous, and fun loving people. Going to school together with Shirley all the way to keeping in touch after school days has been an honour. May God give you all strength to endure this difficult time. Please know that others care.

We are so sorry and shocked to hear about your mom. She will definitely be missed by her family and all of her friends. She was a very special lady. You and Crystal have had too much to deal with this year. First your dad and now your mom. Life is sometimes not fair.

Crystal and Ginger, you and your families have my heartfelt condolences. I loved both your mom and dad. Squirrelly as I called her will forever hold a special place in my heart. Her humour and quick responses (you know what I mean). Both are going to be missed by many. Love to you girls. ❤️❤️❤️
Shirley and Bert, took me into their home when Crystal and I were younger. They didn’t know me very well but after staying at their house for a weekend, they became a second family too me. I spent quite a few weekends all year round with them. They were such great people, taught me a lot. Going to miss them but they are in good hands now. Praying for peace and comfort for your whole family Crystal and Ginger.
