Obituary for Sheila Jardine Ballon

Sheila Ballon
July 22, 1944 – December 4, 2019

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Sheila on December 4, 2019, at the St. Joseph’s Hospital Hospice Unit. Sheila will be dearly missed by her two children, Paula Hammond and Mike Ballon (Janice). In addition, Sheila was proud Nana to two beautiful grandchildren Morgan and Camryn. Sheila is reunited with her loving husband, Guy Ballon, with whom she shared 50 years of marriage. Also, Sheila is predeceased by her loving parents, Dr. Charles and Irene Harris, and older brother, Donald Harris. Sheila fondly remembered growing up in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, as well as her time in Ottawa, Ontario, where she proudly earned a nursing diploma at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in 1966. Known for her warm and vibrant personality and her beautiful auburn hair, Sheila always put others first and she will be dearly missed by the friends she has cultivated over many years. Sheila’s family send a special thank you to all the wonderful staff that cared for her at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s Oncology department and Cancer Centre, as well as the St. Joseph’s hospice. Those who desire may make a memorial donation in memory of Sheila to the Thunder Bay Regional Cancer Centre. Online condolences may be made at

So sorry for your loss. We are thinking of you. It was a pleasure to be in your mom/grandma’s company. She was always smiling and she had a wonderful laugh. Take care, and see you soon.

Dear Mike and Paula
I am so sorry for your loss, I know the both of you and Mike's children will miss Sheila terribly. She was one of the best girl friends I have had, so many fond memories of the times we spent together in one another's homes when we were all living London just a few doors apart. We always used to reminisce about going downtown in the little MGB I had, with the top down and all of you plus Chris squeezed in! We could not do that now! Sheila had many special gifts that she shared freely with others, as you have said so well, her laughter and her warm giving spirit that so matched her warm auburn hair, amongst many others. Sending peace and comfort to you and your families.

Dear Mike Ballon and family and Paula Hammond and family. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I just heard about this through my Aunt Joy. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I have many happy memories of both your mom and dad. I remember your mom's delicious cookies especially, her kindness, and her laughter. Someday I would love to reconnect with you both. Feel free to email me at if you like. Please do take care, Chris.
