CAMERON, Dr. Sheila (Winifred) nee Johnston

Posted by on January 20, 2016

web_Cameron_SheilaBorn April 5, 1940 – Died January 19, 2016

It is with broken hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Sheila on January 19 , at the age of 75. Devoted spouse to Allen throughout a marriage that spanned 46 years. Loving mother of Janine (Rob), Steven, and Andrew. Cherished Grandma of Cameron and Rowan. Dear sister in law of Lynne and William Spragg. Cherished aunt of Jeffrey, Lori, Jennifer, Patricia, and Pamela.

Professor, author, nurse, advisor, and mentor. Born in York, England of parents Thomas Johnston and Winifred (nee Tait). Raised in England and Scotland, Dr. Cameron began her nursing career as a Registered Sick Children’s Nurse in Edinburgh, Scotland. She emigrated to Canada, a trip she told her Mother would be only 1 year long, in 1964. Dr. Cameron continued her education and earned a Bachelor of Arts – 1971 from McMaster University, Master of Arts (Education for Nurses) – 1975 from the University of Detroit, and a Doctor of Education – 1983 from the Wayne State University. In the ‘60s served as a Nurse in Newcastle Upon Tyne, St. Joseph’s in Hamilton, and Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital. Began teaching at Madonna College in Detroit in 1970, and joined the University of Windsor School of Nursing faculty in 1976, remaining there until her retirement 30 years later. She was the Director of the School of Nursing from 1986 through 1995, and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research from 1996 through 2005. In 1997, Dr. Cameron became the first woman scholar at Windsor to receive the title of University Professor, the highest rank in academia.

Her resume boasts an outstanding record of honours, research funding, scholarly publications, professional and community service, and teaching. Some highlights include receiving an honorary Doctor of Science degree from McMaster University and, from the University of Windsor, an Excellence in Mentoring Award and a Clark Award for outstanding service to the University. Dr. Cameron also received $1.4 million in CIDA funding for a 10 year collaborative nursing education project with the Jordan University of Science and Technology, meeting with the Queen of Jordan who was very supportive. She received research funding for over 35 other projects; and was the author / co-author of 50 journal articles and presenter of papers at 60 conferences worldwide. Much of her research related to quality of life issues for nurses and for cancer patients. Further, colleagues credit her with playing a key role in the creation of the Nurse Practitioner Program in Ontario. Examples of her many and varied service activities include: serving on the University of Windsor Senate and Board of Governors, for 20 years on the Board of the Windsor / Essex Infant & Family Program including as President, as Vice-Chair of the Metropolitan Hospital Board, and as Vice-President of Community Living Ontario (formerly OAMR).

Most important was the human being Sheila was. Wise, kind, dignified, selfless, gentle, modest, humane, and loving, she had high standards and inspired people to achieve more than they ever dreamed they could.  She positively influenced the lives of a great many people. The sort of person that people went to when they needed advice, Sheila had an uncanny ability to analyze the facts and give you just the right words and tools to deal with the situation.

The family’s profound gratitude to Mom’s “adopted sisters” Dale and Lois who remained steadfast in their support over the years and particulary during the past 4 difficult months. Deep appreciation for the incredible compassion shown by Dr. Aoun and the many nurses who cared for Mom over the years. Additionally, a special thank you to the PSWs who cared for Mom for several years, especially to Liz and Chrissy who provided outstanding care. Donations to the Dr. Sheila Cameron Scholarship Fund would be appreciated www.uwindsor.ca/donations. Visiting Thursday & Friday 3-5 & 7-9pm.
