Born in Ottawa on March 29, 1927 and died in Ottawa July 31, 2020.

In between, Sheila grew up in Red Lake, Ontario, attended Lisgar Collegiate in Ottawa and received a Bachelor of Commerce from Trinity College, University of Toronto in 1948.

After graduation, she worked in Washington, D.C. and then moved to Rome, Italy where she lived for ten years. Returning to Canada with her four children, she lived in Ottawa briefly and then moved to Sault Ste. Marie where her fifth child was born. She became a gifted artist, exhibiting and selling work locally and across the country. It was during this time that she spent many happy years designing and building a small collection of cottages on Marlette Bay on Lake Superior. She eventually moved to Vancouver, B.C. and then back to Ottawa. In her art, she worked with fabric and wool; making hooked rugs, weavings, silk screens and, when her eyes became compromised, woodcarvings.

Sheila is survived by her five children: Ian Anderson in Houston, TX, Alexandra Anderson in Toronto, Ann Anderson and George Case in Ottawa, and Fiona Anderson in Victoria, B.C and nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Sheila’s ashes will be buried in Red Lake, Ontario.

My condolences to your family. Sheila was incredibly talented, a weaver and spinner of beautiful items. I enjoyed meeting and knowing Sheila during her lifetime in Sault Ste. Marie. As the owner of The Loon's Nest at the time I appreciated her skills and acumen. One day on Lake Superior I stumbled on her "summer" and "winter" cabins - the memory of the careful design is one I carry with me today.

I am sad Sheila is gone and I am going to miss her very much. For more than 15 years we emailed each other EVERY DAY and last few years we connected by phone. Her emails were the best reading-funny, wise and never boring. She was insightful about politics and what was happening in the world. Her “people” stories were delightful. She knew all the folk in my world and remembered their names and details about them that I often forgot. Gary and I often stopped in for overnight visit in The Saul on our way to Ottawa. She was always welcoming. When she moved to Vancouver, my sister Connie and I along with Diana had many yearly visits spending 3 or 4 days at the Sylvia Hotel . We talked and laughed non stop.Much more interesting hanging out with Sheila than seeing the sights of Vancouver. I treasure a couple of her hooked rugs and display them for all to see. Condolences to all her family, you all gave her pleasure. Cousin Penny
