SHEILA VINCENT It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and colleague, Sheila Iris Vincent. Sheila left us to be with Dad on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at the age of 61 years. Left to cherish Sheila's memory are her sister Shirley (Robert) and family; four children: Rodney (Varity), Shaun (Kyla), Paul (Colleen), Ryan; grandchildren: Soren, Masyn, Rowan; honorary grandchildren: Ethan, Abby, Riley; very close in-laws: Eva (Lorne), Peggy (Jean-Paul (late) and family); as well she leaves behind stepsiblings; in-laws, many nieces and nephews; and very close friends. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Ronald; father Harvey; and mother Simone. Sheila grew up in St. Laurent, Manitoba, and moved to Winnipeg at the age of 15. After eventually settling in the city, she met her one and only love Ronald and the two married at the age of 17. Together they raised a family of four boys. Sheila worked extremely hard throughout her life, providing for her family through various positions. Many will remember her 18 years at Robin's Donuts, though her most rewarding career was with Child and Family Services Winnipeg, where her kindness and many strengths helped the lives of so many people throughout the years. Sheila was loved, respected and was a pillar of support for many friends and challenging families in need. She was always known for her car trunk full of much needed clothing and food for the children she cared for, often paid for with her own money. She was selfless when it came to helping others, no matter how stressful her own life would ultimately become after the passing of Ronald, her loving husband. The positive impact Sheila left will forever be felt in the community. Family was Sheila's life. She was a very proud mother of her four boys, and an even more proud honorary grandmother and Mémère to her six grandchildren. Her gigantic purse was always stuffed with treats, toys and goodies for them. Sheila loved spending time with family and friends, whether it be camping with her boys, fishing with dad, bingo with friends, wing nights, or shopping in Grand Forks. She particularly enjoyed partaking in some fierce canasta games in Pine Falls with sisters and brothers-in-law, whom she loved dearly. Her colleagues and fellow support workers were also important to her, often helping her through hard times in the absence of her Ronald. Funeral Mass will Celebrated on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. in Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church, 254 Arnold Avenue, with Rev. Fr. Wayne Morrissey, presiding. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St-Boniface Hospital Foundation or any charity supporting children such as Coats for Kids, Lunches with Love, Siloam Mission or Christmas Cheer Board.
