  • Notes 
    • Shirley was born at Grandma Day's nursing home in Coronach, Saskatcewan. She took her elementary and secondary education at Coronach. Shirley was an active member of the 4-H Club, mainly sewing and cooking. She took piano lessons for many years, completed her Grade 8 Practical and Grade 2 Theory in piano. Shirley enjoyed singing, curling, skating and most track and field events. Through Grades 3 to 12, Shirley sang in the school choral group, participating in many Assiniboia Music Festivals. Shirley also played saxophone and trombone in the school band.

      In 1960 Shirley and three other students graduated from the Coronach School. She attended a ten-month steno course at Reliance School of Commerce in Regina and completed it in June 1961. She was employed as an assistant secretary-treasurer for the Gull Lake School Unit until December 1961. She then transferred to the Borderland School Unit in Rockglen, Sask. While employed with the Borderland School Unit she took a Local Government Administration course and received her LGA diploma in the summer of 1963.

      Shirley married Ralph Kupper in July 1963 in Coronach. She decided to live in Coronach and commuted to Rockglen to work until the end of 1963. Ralph and Shirley purchased a two-bedroom trailer which they parked in Ralph's parents' yard. They lived in that trailer for seven years and sold it on October 31, 1970 and then rented a small two-story house. In February 1971 Ralph and Shirley, pregnant with Carla, and family of two boys Rodney and Todd, moved again into a bigger rental house. They finally built their own house and moved into it on June 15, 1977.

      Shirley worked from January to December 1974 for the combined offices of the R.M. of Hart Butte #11 and the Village of Coronach as assistant secretary. In June 1978, with three children in school, I re-entered the work force as school secretary for the Coronach School and held that position until retirement.
