LAUSCHER, Shirley Eilleen

July 29, 1940 – July 31, 2013

It is with great sadness we have to announce our Mom, Shirley Lauscher (Greenhorn) passed away July 31, 2013. Mom passed away at the Palliative Care Unit at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after a heroic battle with cancer.

Shirley is survived by her husband Reg Lauscher, her son Greg Lauscher, daughter Sandy (Jeff) and daughter Pam (Warren). Shirley has five grandchildren, Sheila (Doug), Cassandra, Anastasia, Christina, Mariah; and three great-grandchildren, Carys, Dylan and Hunter. Predeceased by her parents Jack Greenhorn and Margaret Morris.

Shirley and Reg would have been married 52 years on August 4, 2013 but missed it by four days. Shirley was born at the Ladysmith Hospital. She worked in Vancouver as a nurse and then as a hairdresser. When living in Ocean Falls she worked as a custodian for the Ocean Falls High School, but the greatest job of all was being our MOM.


We may be apart, but you will never be forgotten, because you are always in our hearts. You were taken away too early to go on your journey. We love you and miss you so much, but now you’re an ANGEL. Mom you will always be the number one MOM. We all love you so much, until we meet again mom. Forever with LOVE, Greg, Sandy and Pam.


The family wants to extend their profound thanks to the entire staff at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital Palliative Unit. We would also like to thank Dr. Lisinski and Roxanne and all the other doctors and nurses involved with mom. Thank you to everyone who made meals and baked goods, and for the many flowers and cards. Special Thanks to mom’s Friends and Family who came to see mom before her journey to Heaven.
