October 18, 1928 – January 1, 2020
Sheila passed away peacefully at the Queensway Carleton Hospital, after a short illness, on January 1, 2020, at the age of 91. She was predeceased by her husband Jeffrey, and son John. She is survived by her son Mark.
Beginning her career as a Nurse in her native England, she moved to Toronto and then to California, before finally settling in Ottawa. In her later years, she worked for both the Davis Agency and Koyman Galleries. She loved to work and meet people and refused to retire until well into her 70’s. Sheila was well known for her kindness, humour, determination, and independence. She will be deeply missed by her family and her long-time friends in Ottawa, California, and Vancouver. A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Carefor Health & Community Services and the Queensway Carleton Hospital for their excellent care and support.
In accordance with Sheila’s wishes, cremation, and a private family interment will be held. As an expression of sympathy donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
