Lord, Shari (nee Avery) June 15, 1962 - July 6, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Shari Lord.
Growing up the daughter of a Canadian Armed Forces member, Shari eventually settled down in the Ingersoll area after attending the University of Waterloo. She worked for 30 years with Cami Automotive, where she filled a variety of positions from Production Associate to Team Lead in the Quality Department.
While Shari was devoted to her career, her greatest joy was being the proud mom to her daughter, Samantha, and helping her grow into a strong, independent, and successful woman.
Shari was an avid reader who enjoyed live theatre, quilting, knitting and needlework. She also loved to bake, and was famous for her mouth-watering Christmas toffee, leaving everyone fighting over the last piece. Upon retirement she moved to London, where she became an active member of the Matthews Woods Single Retired Ladies Club, finding friendships and plenty of smiles. Despite facing many mobility and health challenges in recent years, Shari is known for maintaining a positive outlook and having never complained.
Shari is deeply missed by her daughter, Samantha, four-legged companion, Fitzner, her parents, Ed and Sheila Avery, siblings, Martin (Jackie), Kim (Dave), Derek (Kelly), and Marla, as well as her many nieces, nephew, and friends.
Due to current restrictions on social gatherings, a small memorial service will be held on July 20th. As per Shari’s wishes, she will be taken later to her heart’s home in the Annapolis Valley, NS.
Our sincerest gratitude to her health care team for their care and compassion. Memorial donations may be made to Alexandra Hospital in Ingersoll, Parkwood Institute, or University Hospital in London.
Cremation arrangements entrusted to McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll 519-425-1600.
