Peacefully at the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus on July 4th, 2021 in her 75th year.
Shelda-Jean White (nee Wilson) of Ottawa, beloved wife of Roger White. Loving mother of Perry (Roxanne) of Ottawa, and pre-deceased by Chris (Micki) of Toronto. Grandmother to Emily, Olivia, and Domenico.
She is survived by her brothers Carl (Ruth) of Pembroke, Glen (Lorette) of Beachburg, and predeceased by James (Mabel) of Renfrew and her sister Shirley Martin (Tom) of Douglas. She is also survived by nieces, nephews and friends.
A graduate of the Lorraine School of Nursing in Pembroke, Shelda-Jean took great pride in being a maternity nurse with the Pembroke General Hospital for more than 30 years caring for countless moms and babies. She was an avid crafter, knitter and reader so had no problem taking a sweater apart multiple times to get it just right. When you received one of her creations it was a piece of art.
The family would like to express our gratitude for the truly compassionate care of the doctors, nurses and staff of the Ottawa Civic Hospital and particularly those of the E5 ward.
Cremation has taken place and a private family memorial service will follow at a later date.
As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
