Obituary

In Loving Memory of
Sherry Worth (nee Whitmell)
May 22, 1960 – May 24, 2019

Sherry went to be with the Lord on the afternoon of May 24, 2019. She was not defined by her five month illness but rather she defined what it was to be a fighter and an inspiration. While Lynn may have been her middle name, her middle name truly was Grace. The grace she showed through every appointment and hospital stay was immeasurable. The grace she showed by taking difficult news in stride while continuing to positively look forward was astonishing. The grace she showed in choosing to focus on the gratitude she felt toward her family was amazing. She was so accomplished in all areas of her life but her favourite role was of loving mother to her son George. All that is wonderful about Sherry will continue to live on in this young man who loved, cherished and cared for his mother. So much of her brilliance as a mother, she learned from her own mother, Mignonne who has never been far from her side. Sherry was predeceased by her father, Ken and nephew Adam both of whom she dearly loved. Those of us who remain to keep the memory of our dear sister alive everyday include Shirley (Stan) Berlinghoff, Peggy (Robert) Berlinghoff, Bonny (David) O’Hare and Kenny (Adela) Whitmell. Each of her siblings had their own special relationship with Sherry. We learned from her, laughed with her and we were unendingly supported by her.

Sherry impacted so many lives including many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles who experienced her unwavering love and support, many old and new friends who cherished their special bond and long time clients like Agnew Peckham, Martin Wade and Pro Motion Physiotherapy who loved her for the giving, generous, and completely caring person she was.

Sherry loved to play games (may have been the country’s best Boggle player) and loved to help everyone (wrapping Christmas presents at 3:00 in the morning every Christmas Eve). Sherry was wise beyond her years. We could have used more of them but we are grateful for the light that she was in our lives for 59 years.
In keeping with Sherry’s humble nature, her wishes were not to have a wake but a simple gravesite service. It will take place on Saturday, June 1st at 4:00 pm at the Porquis Cemetery. Friends and family are invited to share this time.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Cystic Fibrosis of Canada would be greatly appreciated. To share a memory or photo, or to place a donation please visit www.abitibifuneralservicesltd.com Funeral arrangements entrusted to Abitibi Funeral Services Ltd (705-258-4077).

We were so sorry to hear about Sherry's passing. For the last few years we've been staying at a cottage resort on the same week as Sherry and George, and have very much enjoyed getting to know both of them. We would always find Sherry sitting in a Muskoka chair reading a book, and always eager for a friendly chat. We'll miss her smiling face. Thinking of you George during this difficult time.

We had the good fortune to meet Sherry several years ago at a cottage resort when she brought George to a fishing event. Each year since we have rented cottages side by side and had fun as the kids all played together. She was a wonderful lady, full of a gentle good grace, and a smile for everyone.
Her kindness and sincere warmth for those around here will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and esp. to George who lost so good a mother.

This tree is planted in Sherry's memory to have an ongoing reminder of a wonderful person. It will be planted in an area of need - Sherry was always there when I or anyone needed her. It is my wish that it grows strong and proud to signify the person Sherry was, giving oxygen to the world the way she gave of herself to everyone.
Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
