Sheila loved to laugh and have fun with her family, she played cards like a shark and was a pro at darts. She looked forward to playing bingo every week. Also if you mentioned trouting she was ready with her rod to go and if anyone wanted to go berry picking she was there. She was the light of her children and great-children life’s but after she lost Peter in 2014 who was the love of her life, she fretted herself. She was so proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren accomplishments when she talked about them you could see the love shining from her. Sheila was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
