McPHERSON, Shelley Christine McPherson - Age 49, passed away on Sunday, May 5th, 2019 surrounded by her loving family at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
She was born on November 12, 1969 to Bill (1932-2009) and Verna McPherson (Hamilton).
Younger sister of John McPherson (Elaine) and Elaine Morra (Tony).
Aunt to Jacob, Alisha, Emma, and Michael. She was appreciative of the continuous support and love from extended family members and friends.
Shelley was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
She loved music (Blue Rodeo, and the Northern Pikes), Kawartha Dairy ice cream, and her cats. Shelley was a graduate of the Legal Administration program at Durham College.
After graduation, she worked in the field until her health declined to the point that she was unable to continue. Shelley has shown incredible strength in dealing with extensive psoriatic arthritis throughout much of her life; this was only further complicated recently by metastatic breast cancer.
She appreciated the years of help from the Pickering Chiropractic Centre.
Shelley highly valued her independence and privacy and due to this, the immediate family members have chosen to have a private family service to respect her wishes.
