Shirley Barker, REALTOR®
Shirley was born in Vernon, BC. As fate often does, it has taken Shirley full circle; when she was just six years of age, she lived in Salmon Arm on the old Kault Hill road, and remembers walking past her home of 25 years in Gleneden, with her brother, who was taking her to the old school house, near where the Gleneden fire hall now sits. When she was 9 years old her family moved to the Arrow Lakes area of the West Kootenays, where she resided until 1979.
Shirley and her husband, Bill, started their first shake and shingle mill in 1980, where she not only worked at the mill, she also did the accounting for the business along with raising her family of two boys and two girls. In 1981 Shirley and family moved to Valemount where they operated a shake and shingle mill until 1987, at which time they completed the circle and moved to Salmon Arm. Shirley was very active in minor hockey from atoms to juvenile, and is still an avid Canuck fan. Golf and fishing, in that order, are her two favourite pastimes, with travel coming in a close third! Shirley worked as a meat wrapper in the old Westside store in Piccadilly Mall. In 1991, she joined her husband Bill in their chosen profession of real estate.
