Sharon Elizabeth Palmer
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Sharon Elizabeth Palmer, 62, of Centerville, Kings County, on February 8, 2019. She was at the Valley Regional Hospital and was embraced by her loving family. Born in Ontario, she was the daughter of the late Keith and Elizabeth Palmer of Billtown. At 15 years old, Sharon first started volunteering and was later employed as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Evergreen Home for Special Care. Working in the Children’s Unit, her compassionate and loving nature led her to pursue a post secondary education. While continuing to work and raise her three daughters, she travelled daily to Dalhousie University and in 1996 graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Following her graduation, she worked at the Valley Regional Hospital as a Charge Nurse on the Medical Unit until the time of her retirement. Sharon was a passionate nurse who put her heart and soul into caring for those around her and inspired others to do the same. Her knowledge, clever instincts, determination, and firm belief in the value of every person, made a difference in the lives of so many. Sharon’s greatest joy in life was her family. She was an incredible mother, sister, aunt, friend and Binney. Her humour, compassion, sharp wit, uplifting hugs and welcoming smile will be forever missed. She was happiest when spending time with her grandchildren, Kaelen, Max, Eliza, AJ and Gus, along with niece Halee and nephew Mason. They will miss her fun-loving ways and unconditional love. Surely Binney will be present and beaming with pride when her newest grandson arrives in the spring. Sharon is survived by her three daughters, Beth Sheppard (Clinton Pothier); Kelly Godfrey (Adam); and Megan Sheppard (Bryce Cooper); siblings, Kathy, Sandy, Michelle, Kevin and Bryan. She is predeceased by her infant siblings, Valerie and Stephen. A gathering to honour Sharon’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019, at White Family Funeral Home in Kentville. In lieu of flowers please send your memories of Sharon to firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations in memory can be made to the Annapolis Valley Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
