Shirlee and her husband Bill lived for many years in Hudson’s Hope BC, the site of the hydro-electric dams built on the Peace River and featured in This Was Our Valley. Shirlee was employed by The District of Hudson’s Hope during construction of the WAC Bennett Dam; and by BC Hydro during construction of the second dam (Site One, now called Peace Canyon).

On returning to Calgary, Shirlee was employed for a number of years at the Aero Space Museum (now called The Hangar Flight Museum), and recently completed a project as Historian for Calgary International Airport.
