In Memoriam: Shirley Gillette

The Institute is saddened to report the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Shirley Gillette. Shirley’s commitment to Institute members was deep and unwavering. We will miss her very much.

A loyal and hard-working member of the CS Group, Shirley liked to come to the aid of her colleagues. Shirley helped members deal with issues such as difficult work situations, getting answers to their questions and obtaining information concerning issues that affected them.

Shirley served Institute members with distinction in a number of capacities over many years, notably as a union steward at Global Affairs Canada in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Shirley was president of the CS Global Affairs Canada Sub-Group and president of the NCR Global Affairs Canada Branch.

For many years, Shirley served as a delegate to the PIPSC AGM.  She also served on the Vision Committee of the Retired Members Guild and on the Global Affairs Canada Consultation Team.

Professional Institute members extend their heartfelt condolences to Shirley’s family and to the many friends who were privileged to know her.
