Edna Mae Sheen

LeSkintique salutes:  

*The Memory of Edna Mae Sheen*

James & Dawn White and the staff of Le Skintique sadly note the passing of our beloved Edna Mae Sheen, sister, friend and skin care expert.

Le Skintique welcomed Edna Mae as our Advanced Skin Care Specialist in 2008. She quietly departed this life on January 20, 2012, perhaps to make Heaven a bit more fabulous.

Edna worked for more than two decades in the glamour and advanced skin care industry and transitioned into teaching, production management, purchasing and product marketing.

We salute her accomplishments as an Emmy and Academy Award nominated make-up artist and department head for over 100 television and feature film productions.

  1. My deepest sympathy to Edna’s family for the loss of such a georgeous woman. Edna was always a light and the light in the rooms. I will always have fond memories and remeber her for her smile, her style and of course her striking beauty. I know she’s in a better place and there’s comfort in knowing we will meet again one day. Rest in peace Miss Edna.

  4. God granted Edna a sunbeam to warm her, a moonbeam to charm her, a sheltering Angel so nothing could harm her. Laughter cheered her. Faithful friends were near her. And when she prayed, Heaven heard her.
    I will never forget Edna Sheen.

  5. My heart is heavy with the loss of our dear wonderful sister Edna. She and I had just recently run into each other while shopping on two different ocassions. She appeared to be so full of life and energy and wanted me to come by for a facial. She made me look so beautiful when she did the makeup for our film Perfume back in 1987. I will be using a photo on my book cover that she did the makeup for and give her a spcial tribute in my book, “Backstage at The Price Is Right, memoirs of a Barker Beauty”.

  6. I found Edna to be a beautiful person filled with warmth and kindness. Her beautiful smile will be missed. My prayers go out to the family during this time of bereavement. May you take comfort in knowing that others care and are standing with you during your loss

  7. Edna was my sister and I will miss her terribly.
    I think of you Edna, every day
    your smiles, chatter and laughter, the words you did say.
    The coffees and catch-ups, the time that we shared,
    busy lives we lived but we still was very close together, and showed just how much we.shared……….
    Your Sister, Dawn White

  8. I feel such a void without my sister. She was someone I could talk to at any time and go to special events with and she was supportive when things sometime look very bleek. I studied classical piano and she is the only one that would always ask me to play the piano and say “don”t let anything ever get in your way of your playing or not performing to the best of your ability.” I love and miss you Sis.
    Your Sister Dawn

  9. Another month and it is still like you are stil here. A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it can never Pass into nothingness -Keats
    May God bless you and keep you in heaven and your sprit will stay alive forever. We all miss you and will pray for you always.

    Love you, your sis
