January 1938 - October 2022

Sheila died peacefully October 1, 2022, in Edmonton at 84 years of age.
Sheila was a Montrealer who moved to Winnipeg in 1976 where she stayed until 1993. She was a trailblazer, a poet, a mother, a friend, a long-time advocate for human rights, and a decades long volunteer at events including the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Children's Festival, and the Ottawa Folk Festival. Her career in communications spanned decades and brought her back East to the heart of Canada's civil service in Ottawa where she managed her own communications team and garnered awards with the federal government.
A service will be held on Saturday, April 1, at 3:30 p.m. at the St. James Anglican Church at 195 Collegiate St., Winnipeg, MB R3J 1T9. Following the service a Wake will be held in Sheila's honour from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be food and drinks and music and friends and family. Please come and celebrate Sheila with us.
A more comprehensive obituary and date for her interment out East will follow in coming months. Please contact her son 'Tawny' at for more information.
