Jennifer White-Aloe

1926-2019

Jennifer White-Aloe
It is with a broken heart that I announce that on Thursday, August 15th, 2019, my mom and best friend, Jennifer White-Aloe, who was loved by all who knew her, peacefully passed away at Cambridge Memorial Hospital at the age of 93, surrounded by those who loved her. Born in Poland on July 29th, 1926, she came to Canada with her parents at the age of 4, originally settling in Prince Albert, SK and then moving to Southern Ontario. When she was 10 years old, her mother died, leaving her to raise her 3 siblings, including a baby. As an adult, she worked in factories including Hostess and From Brothers, eventually becoming a homemaker. She loved dancing, reading, knitting, talking on the phone with friends, cooking and baking and was an excellent cook and baker. Her specialties included homemade bread, ravioli and perogies to name a few. In her later years, she became a fierce card player, playing euchre, bid euchre and solo. She loved people and made friends wherever she went. She had the ability to connect with others, making them feel special. Those who knew her remarked on her amazingly positive attitude despite the many challenges she faced as well as her infectious smile which never faded. She considered herself blessed and noted the "angels" who always seemed to appear when she needed them. She was known for her quick wit, often catching people off guard and giving them a chuckle. She loved a good sense of humour. Many thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses who have cared for her over the years, specifically Dr. Jolly, Dr. Glenn Martin, Dr. Daly, Dr. El Ghamudi, Dr. S. Arora, Dr. A. Young, Dr. Bhella and Dr. Nuri, the phenomenal team of nurses and staff at the GRH Renal Department as well as the amazing team of nurses, physiotherapists and PSW's on the 3rd floor Surgical Department of CMH. Thanks also to the team of nurses on the 5th floor of GRH where she stayed within the last year. In honour of Jenny's wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Please take a moment to celebrate her life with a smile and be someone's "angel". Mom - you will never be forgotten and will be greatly missed by all who knew you. Donations to GRH, CMH, the Kidney Foundation of Canada or any charity of your choice are appreciated.
