In Memoriam

Shirley Sandziuk

Shirley Sandziuk


Shirley was a longtime member of CGIT both as a girl and as a leader. In Ottawa, she led CGIT first at Bell’s Corners United and most recently at Westminster Presbyterian. She served the Ottawa CGIT Committee in many capacities. She will be best remembered for her work in Leadership Education and as Chair of the Committee. Shirley served as the Eastern Ontario Representative on the Ontario CGIT Association.

She gave her wisdom and joy to all of the girls past and present in the Ottawa area, where she was a role model to all she led and a mentor to other leaders. Shirley’s devotion to CGIT was recognized by a Life Member’s Pin from the National CGIT Association.

She leaves us with wonderful memories of “becoming the woman God would have her be.”

Carol was a longtime member of the Ottawa CGIT community. She volunteered on all of our committees. She served for many years as the chair of the Camp Kalalla management committee. She also gave her energy to all of our camp work parties and worked directly with the campers as a regular member of the camp staff.

She leaves a very large hole in our committee and in our hearts.
