WHITE (NEE CONQUERGOOD), Shirley Jessilind

February 16, 1928 – December 17, 2018.

Our loving mother Shirley Jessilind White (nee Conquergood) quietly passed away on December 17, 2018 at the age of 90. Mom was born in Winnipeg on February 16, 1928 and grew up in Lilyfield, Manitoba. She attended Gordon Bell High School then went into nursing school. She
is predeceased by her loving husband Walter White, brothers Ross Conquergood and infant Thomas Conquergood, sisters Flora Green and Deanie Kerr, brother-in-laws Tom Patterson and Bill Smee. Left to mourn are her children Margaret Young (Allan), Irene White/Matas (Roger),
Sheila Coggan (Bill), Gail Byington (Dave) and Lyle White (Alain); Sisters Wilhelmina Smee and Jean Patterson as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

She will be especially missed by her favourite pets Cooper and Piper. Mom was an avid golfer. She got her first hole in one at the age of 80. She was often found in front of her TV watching golf when she wasn’t playing. She loved her bingo and playing cards. We are sure she is already beating Dad in a game of gin.

The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at The Kelowna General Hospital. A family service and interment will be held at a later date at the Lilyfield Cemetery in Manitoba. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

Rest in Peace Mom. We will miss you.

    So sorry to hear the passing of your mom. Shirley and I golfed together for years and had so many laughs. Another angel has gone to heaven to be with her hubby Walter.
