Shirley Elliott, 89, went home to her Lord peacefully at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack NH on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. Born April 30, 1927, daughter of the late Amedee and Mary Louise Canton, Shirley was the Nashua Telegraph's Mother of the Year in 1965, and most notably a loving soul for all of her days to those who were blessed to know her. Her smile and kind word, both easily and often given to everyone around her, were sincere and infectious. Only after her love for her Lord and babies was Shirley's love to travel and see all of God's creation. At last count, she had visited 38 countries and almost all of the States within the United States, graciously sharing her many wonderful memories with all. When her traveling slowed Shirley created almost a hundred large needlepoints which she gave to her family and friends.

Shirley is survived by nine of her children, Richard Elliott, Michael Elliott, DonnaLee Elliott, Mary Smith, Diana Elliott, David Elliott, Patricia Schappler, Larry Elliott, and Thomas Elliott, as well as twenty-four grandchildren, sixteen great-grand children, and multitudes of nieces and nephews.
