Shirley Murdock

Obituary of Shirley Margaret Murdock

The passing of Shirley Margaret Murdock of Fredericton, NB, wife of the late Ronald Murdock occurred on Friday, March 26, 2021 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital. Born on October 31, 1932 in Fredericton, NB, she was the daughter of the late C. Nelson Scott and Mary “May” (McLaren) Scott Myles. Shirley was a beloved member of the Fredericton Flea Market and New Brunswick Yard Sale communities. Her pets were like her children; she loved her many dogs, cats, one monkey and one squirrel. One cat, Little Man, who was her constant companion in her final years, survives her. Shirley was a member of St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Fredericton, NB.

Shirley is survived by her sister, Heather Scott (David Sinstadt) and step brother, Edward Smith, both of Fredericton, NB; nieces and nephew, Marjory Hancox (William), Morgan Scott Sinstadt both of Fredericton, NB and Taylor Scott Sinstadt of Hamilton, ON; grandnieces, Elizabeth Andrews (Geordie) and Margaret Hancox, both of Fredericton, NB; great grandniece and nephew, Emma and Isaac; special friend, Burton Omar of St. Stephen, NB; and sister-in-law, Dawn Marie Wood of Marysville, NB. In addition to her parents and husband, Shirley was predeceased by her sisters, Mary Patricia “Patty”, Margaret Helen “Peggy”, Marjorie Eleanor “Mardie”, Carolyn Ebbett-Pugh; and sisters-in-law, Norma Murdock of Royal Road, NB and Donna Murdock of Tripp Settlement, NB.

Shirley’s family will miss her unique spunk, stubbornness and daily “news”. Her sister Heather, whom she spoke with daily, will miss her conversations and companionship. She was a proud and feisty “little old lady” and independent until the end. There will be no funeral service by Shirley’s request. A Graveside Service will take place in St. John the Evangelist Cemetery at a later date. For those who wish, remembrances may be made to the Fredericton SPCA.
