Our dearly beloved Sharon Joy Casey suddenly passed at the age of 65 from a major stroke on Monday, October 16, 2017, at the Civic Hospital in Ottawa, ON. She was surrounded by loving family. Her remains were cremated at the Pinecrest Cemetery in Ottawa where her son, Johnathan Whiteman, is buried. A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, October 21, 2017, to honour her and the courage, compassion, and wisdom that she bestowed unto others. Members of the local community held a memorial lunch on October 27 to pay tribute to her contributions and selflessness. More about Sharon can be found at

Cherished memories and condolences may be left at the above link as well. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Lung Cancer Canada. Sharon’s family is grateful for the sympathy and support received.

Sharon was an inspirational and awesome mother to Crystal, Mark, and predeceased son, Johnathan; endearing and delightful Nanny (grandmother) to Bryce, Kelsey, Liam, Ayva, Noah, and Toby (by common law); and wonderful friend to many. Beloved Grandmother Selina Blair (Halverson), Lillian Anne and Garfield Hall (whom were like a close aunt and uncle to her and her children), and Stepfather Harvey Johnson predecease Sharon. Brothers Douglas, Larry, and Hal Roy Johnson also predecease Sharon. Mother Dorothy Johnson, Brother Harvey Johnson, and her two dearest sisters, Deborah Pakulak and Lynda Klawitter live on.

Sharon is fondly remembered and immensely missed. In loving memory and respect, we toast in Sharon’s name and with a quote she shared not long before she passed,

“I can’t promise that I’ll be here for the rest of your life;
but I can promise that I’ll love you for the rest of mine.”

And she did. To infinity and beyond, Mum, always and forever.
