Sheila was married to her best friend and companion Eugene for 44 years. After Eugene's passing in June part of her was missing and she never got over his loss. She was a great mother to her son Craig, he was her world until her grandchildren came along and then they were her everything. In her younger years she would stay up all night long playing cards. She loved playing darts and won many trophies. It was her ritual every Wednesday night to go to one of her best friends Mabel's house and play Bingo. She shared many cups of coffee with her friends and loved to give rather than receive. She would do without herself to give to someone else. She was a full time mother to Craig until she went to work first at Warren's Restaurant then Fishery Products. One of the highlights of her life was taking her beloved granddaughter Mackenzie to Disneyland. Also, the trip to St. Anthony to see the Vikings with Eugene, Craig and her good friends Debbie, Mike and Misty Power was a trip she often talked about. Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her family strong values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
Also the family wants to thank nurses Tracey and Tamara and Dr. Le for their kindness and care of Sheila in her final hours. It will never be forgotten. Sheila may be gone from this world but she leaves behind a legacy of family and countless good deeds that will always be remembered by all.
