Shirley Florence Perry (Day) was born in London, England, the first child of James T. Day and Florence N. Day, following Shirley were her siblings Pamela Burr (husband Tony deceased), Janet (Brian) Hunt, and Martin James Day (deceased).
At eight years old Shirley was evacuated out of London with Pam (aged 4); because of the Second World War bombs they spent two years with strangers who took them in. Her schooling was completed in Fulham London, where she also worked in entertainment for 2 years for the troops, and then she became a telephone operator once her schooling was completed.
On a hockey game trip to Nottingham, she was introduced to the love of her life, Daniel W. Perry. They were married October 12, 1957; he was her husband, father of their boys, lover, protector, friend, sweetheart, companion, and her caregiver for 58 years.
Wayne Daniel (Beverly), of Whitecourt was their first child with Dale Martin (Deborah) of Stony Plain coming a year later, both were born in Nottingham, England.

Shirleys life has always included volunteering, starting in England in 1947 with Mental Health, in order to help with her brother Martin. When they moved to Canada, her life in Grande Cache was filled with running the concession for the boys minor hockey, sitting on many Boards, Womens clubs, and anything to do with youth and education. She also organized shopping trips to Hinton, when prices were too high in Grande Cache. Her Lethbridge volunteering efforts included the Craft Club at the hospital, snuggler of babies at the hospital, and T.O.P.S.

Kazimierz Kaz Terajewicz
1915 – 2016
KAZIMIERZ KAZ TERAJEWICZ of Lethbridge beloved husband of Barbara Terajewicz, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at the age of 100 years.
Kaz was fortunate to be born into a wealthy land baron family and was raised in Chorosowszczyzna, District of Nowogrodek, Poland. He enjoyed a wonderful childhood growing up on the large family farm. With the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939, he was deported to Siberia to work in a slave labor camp. He was released in 1941 once the allies persuaded the Soviets to free surviving Poles being held in these camps. In 1942, Kaz enlisted with the Polish Army and was stationed in Iran, Palestine, Iraq, Egypt and Italy. He often spoke of their win at one of the most difficult battles at Monte Casino, Italy. At the end of the war, he was sent to Great Britain and served with the Polish Resettlement Corps until honourably discharged. Kaz arrived in Halifax on May 25, 1947. It was there decided that he should make Montreal his home as he spoke some French, having learned it from one of his nannies. However, once on the train, an infamous game of bridge was started and Kaz missed the stop in Montreal. He arrived in Lethbridge and for a short time worked on sugar beets. He then worked for the Lethbridge Experimental (Research) Station for approximately 2 years and following that, obtained a position with the P.F.R.A., working on various irrigation construction projects including the St. Marys Dam, Waterton Dam, Brooks Aquaduct as well as numerous other smaller projects. Dad worked for the P.F.R.A for 32 years and retired in 1980.
Kaz was very proud of his Polish heritage but he also loved his newly adopted country, Canada. He also loved his family, and probably more than anything he was especially proud of his grandchildren, Matthew and Stephanie. Kaz and Barbara enjoyed travelling and some of their destinations included Italy, Poland, Rhode Island, California and Montana. Most often he enjoyed spending time in our beautiful Rocky Mountains. His hobbies included walking, hiking, fishing, bird hunting, and skiing & curling in his earlier years. Without a doubt, Dads favourite hobby was playing bridge. With his talented bridge partners, Dad earned many medals and in the first 33 of his almost 36 years of retirement, you could often find him at the LSCO, playing a great game of bridge!
Kaz was loved by his family and will be dearly missed.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Yola (Steve) Gruca and his grandson, Matthew Gruca, all of Lethbridge. Kaz is also survived by his sister Jadwiga Boczkowska of Poland; his sister-in-law Aurelia Kochanek of Rhode Island and numerous nieces & nephews.
Kaz was predeceased by his parents, Wladyslaw and Maria (Ancuta) Terajewicz; brother Leon; sister Wladyslawa and by his granddaughter Stephanie in 2007.
In memory of Kaz, donations may be made to STARS Calgary Base Head Office, 1441 Aviation Park NE, Box 570, Calgary, AB T2E 8M7, or to the charity of your choice.
A Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at ST. BASILS ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, 604 13 Street North, Lethbridge, Alberta, with Father Lukas Drapal, celebrant. Interment to follow at Mountain View Cemetery.
