  4. sorry to hear of the loss of your wife and friend are thoughts are with you

  5. Besides the work that Sheelah accomplished in Canada, Sheelah was one of the founding members of Friends of Ostomates Worldwide Canada.

    Sheelah recognized the need to help those people who around the world who had received ostomy surgeries, like she had, but were not able to get ostomy supplies like she had access to.

    So Sheelah being the person she was, got involved early on with FOWC, to make sure that people around the world were able to get those much needed ostomy supplies. She served for as many years as I can remember, as director, Secretary, Treasurer. She was still on the board of FOWC when she passed on

    Sheelah’s efforts and dedication to those with disabilities will never be forgotten
    Rest well now Sheelah for your work is done.

  6. So sorry to hear of Sheelah’s passing. She was a firecracker of a lady that I hope I can be some day. Loyal, loving, tenacious, and dedicated to the causes that she was passionate about. Great lady to have in your corner of the ring when your working towards living your best life with SCI. The community and your family will miss her dearly, but hopefully her indellible mark will make you smile for years to come. Hugs and warm thoughts, Margaret.

  7. Gene & Family
    I am so sorry for your loss of a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. Sheelah was not only all of those but a wonderful friend as well. As I got to know her over the past few years, I thought of her as a cherished and inspirational friend. We had some great laughs and a few tears as well. Sheelah will be remembered very fondly by me. My thoughts and prayers go out to you as you go through this difficult time. Always think of the beautiful memories that were made by you all! (To Sheelah: I will keep my eyes open for you!)

  8. On behalf of myself and my entire family, I wanted to extend the most sincere condolences to you and your family. Sheelah will be missed and our prayers are with you all in your time of grief.
