DAVIES, Sheila Margaret (nee Whittemore) …
On Sunday, August 27, 2017, at the Dearness Home, London, Sheila Margaret Davies Sr. in her 93rd year. Beloved wife of the late Douglas MacKenzie Davies. Dear mother of Ian Whittemore Davies and his wife Kay of London, ON and Kenneth Gordon Davies and his wife Sheila of Bala, ON. Loving grandmother of Julianna, Keefer, Joshua and Tylere Davies. Sheila (along with Douglas) was the founder (1970) of the Children’s International Learning Centre in Hamilton, ON that teaches school age children respect for all people and our common environment. Along with Doug, Sheila’s lifelong commitment was to better the lives of others through her tireless volunteer work, philanthropy and support of humanitarian causes, children’s education and wildlife conservation (in particular the work of Nature Canada – founded by her father Reg in 1939). Sheila’s favorite place was the family cottage on Lake Muskoka. Together, Sheila and Doug generously supported the arts, children’s charities, the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster University, and their churches (MacNeill Baptist Church in Hamilton, and Bannockburn Community Church in Muskoka). The family will receive friends for a visitation one hour prior (12-1pm) to the memorial service which will be held at A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London, on Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Children’s International Learning Centre, 189 King William Street, Hamilton, ON, L8R 1A7 or Nature Canada, 85 Albert Street, Suite 900, Ottawa, ON, K1P 6A4 or Bannockburn Community Church, Box 101, Bala, ON, P0C 1A0.
