BACKUS - Shirley J. (nee Wischnacht)
Of East Aurora, NY. We ushered Mom into Jesus' arms on March 10, 2014 at the age of 87. She was ready and though we know she is surrounded by joy, peace and love, we miss her terribly. Beloved wife of the late Alan Backus; loving mother of David and Susan; loving mother-in-law of Gary; loving grandmother of Dorian, Dale, Dara, Claire, Dan and Tess; special aunt of Peggy, Susan and Judy. Mom touched all those around her with her love, compassion, creativity and fun loving spirit. She faced many challenges in life, but was an overcomer. Memorial Service not to be held until Saturday, May 10, 2014 at Crossroads Christian Church, East Aurora, NY at 11:00 AM. Light lunch will follow. In lieu of flowers, Mom would have wanted donations sent to: The Pet Connection, Marilla, NY. Arrangements by BUFFALO NIAGARA CREMATION SERVICE, 855-1411.
