Sheila died peacefully at Riverview Health Centre in the early morning of Monday, November 19, 2018 in her home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Sheila will remain in the hearts of her four children, Katie (Shane), Paul (Carol), Sean, Mary (Bill) and her precious grandchildren, Beth (Steve), Zona (Casey), Emma, Sarah, Sam, Matt, Ryan, Joe and Nick, as well as her much loved nieces and nephews, Mike (Wanda), Maureen (Duncan), Matt (Lori), Allison and their dear children Patrick, Nicole, Dylan, Holly, Neva and Charlie; sisters-in-law Betty and Joyce; dear friends and extended family Amy, Helen, Sharon, Kathy and Matthew (Elyse). She was predeceased by her beloved husband Neil (1984); father John; nephew John; her wonderful mother Florence; and siblings John and Patricia.

The circle of people whose lives intersected with Sheila is extensive and her gifts of intelligence, humour and warm caring have been experienced by many. The lessons she taught us will remain with us and her graciousness, in even the most trying of times, is an example that will never leave those who love her. She will be dearly missed.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday December 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Avenue, with Rev. Fr. Sam Argenziano presiding.

Thank you to Dr. Brighid Drain at Tuxedo Family Medical for the years of wonderful care, the nurses at the Community Palliative Care Program and to the wonderful doctors, nurses and healthcare aides of 3 East at the Riverview Health Centre.
