She is fondly remembered by Frank, her husband of 62 years, her sons Stephen (Monica) and Ian and his wife Diana, her grandsons Grant, John and Hugh, her son-in-law Chris Schooley, and her sister Maude Milner in England. She was predeceased by her loving daughter Nancy (2007). Sheila was always positive, loved a good joke and thought the best of her friends and family.
