Obituary of Deborah Lyn White

White, Deborah “Debbie”

It is with great sadness and much love that we say ‘goodbye’ to Deborah “Debbie” Lyn White. On February 25th, 2019 Debbie’s life was taken away by cancer. Beloved wife of Robert White; devoted daughter to Jean Howard and the late Harry; cherished mother of Karen White and Kelly Small; adored Grandma to Natalie, Nadia, Emily and Quintin. Caring sister to Pam Hann (Malcolm) and Scott Howard (Debra); sister-in-law to James White (Isobel) and Richard White (Clarinda). Debbie will be missed by her many nieces and nephews.


Debbie was born in Windsor, Ontario in 1948 and met her husband, Bob in 1968, marrying in 1970. She was a gracious, compassionate individual who loved life; an amazing woman with the biggest heart and was the sweetest, kindest person. Debbie was like a ‘bright light’ in all our lives and touched so many hearts. She was loved and will be remembered by her family and friends. God bless her soul. A special thank you to all the staff at the LHSC Cancer Clinic and St. Joseph’s Hospice.


Friends will be received at John T. Donohue Funeral Home, 362 Waterloo Street at King Street, on Thursday, February 28th from 5-8 o’clock. Cremation has taken place. Online condolences can be made at
