9 months later and I’m still in shock.

I remember Whitney from as far back as the 4th grade at Pines Elementary, she was in my class. She was also at the same middle school and high school as me. We didn’t hang out much, but she was always such a kind person.

Whitney was one of my regular pizza customers when I was at Panago. I’m very sad that I will never again see her name on a delivery order.
My deepest condolences go out to her family,
RIP Whitney, 🙁
I’ll see you again one day


I can only offer a glimpse into our early 20’s. . a time when the Oldbury house was rocking and there was no bad blood between anyone. It was a time of magical youth backed by the Oldbury band house partys. It was one of my most favorite times. Seeing shows, playing foosball and last but not least hanging out with Craig and Whitney. Late at night after she got back from the casino with her tips. She was a dealer and very good at it. We used to smoke alot of weed and watch late night tv. They never minded me being there because we were young and free. I can’t speak for who Whitney became after those time in the mid 2000s only who I remember her being . Young and immature , but also kind and caring , polite but wild at the same time. No one is perfect , but I can say with all honesty she was fun and kind and a great person to hang out with as I did so many late nights with Craig. I don’t know why she left this life , but I wish her all the best , and I willl remember her always as how nice she was . I don’t know if there is a god , but if there is I hope you are with him and at peace . RIP

Met Whitney at about 14 working at McDonald’s and became instant friends. She was always good to find a way to get us in trouble. Throwing eggs and ketchup packets at boys who wronged us lol I remember her cars the mustangs and firebird she sure loved her cars. She had a heart of gold and was there whenever a friend needed her. She was a daddy’s girl and a lifelong friend. My thoughts are with Izzy and family and she loved that little girl more then life itself. I’m so greatful for the years I had with you and the incredible memories we made. And damn I’m greatful now for your live of selfies before they existed pretty sure you created them!! Love you and you will be forever missed by many.

Oh gosh where would I start! A girl that could make anyone laugh, a girl with a heart of gold, a girl that became my first friend In grade 10 when I moved to Red Deer. Many memories of laughs shared… many memories of funny and hilarious things we did together while we lived together with Leah on Oak! You became a mother and we watched you raise Izzy and go to college and become a beautiful soul!
I will never forget our times and antics we got into together. I will forever miss you and I will cherish our memories for years to come. I love you Whit! You will never be forgotten as my fun friend that I could always have a chuckle with! RIP my dearest Whit.

Whitney, I have not been the same since we heard this devastating news. I enjoyed hearing about all your crazy adventures, and was more than happy to help you out each and every time you needed it. I was always the one to give my honest opinion, and I think that is how we connected for so long. You didn’t hold off asking me anything, even when you already knew what my answer would be. This is hard pal. I miss you.

Leah Compton

Whitney, you were one of my best friends since high school. I remember driving around in your firebird, making funny videos, taking hundreds of photos… you were so smart. You were beautiful, intelligent, and so funny. You could always make me laugh. I loved spending time with you and Izzy. She was the light of your life. I will think of you always and all the wonderful memories we shared. You are one in a million. I love you.

Leslie Morrison

Prayers and love with Izzy and Meech and your family Whitney. Rest your soul and be at peace.
