SHEILA ANNE HEWITT
October 3, 1938 - July 3, 2023
Sheila Anne Hewitt passed away suddenly on July 3, 2023.
Sheila was the mother of four children, Maureen Harrison, Neil (Carmen Campbell-Hewitt), David, and Donald (Deborah Eiriksson) Hewitt; and grandmother to 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Sheila was predeceased by Barry, her husband of 67 years and is survived by her sisters-in-law, Helen McKenzie and Muriel (Brian) Hudson and many nieces and nephews.
Sheila loved to dance, have a good laugh, but most of all to be with her family. She was a proud and enthusiastic supporter of all of the various endeavours undertaken by her children and grandchildren whether they were academic, athletic, vocational or avocational, she cheered them all.
Sheila was a very social woman, who was an active participant in each of the communities where she lived, Winnipeg where she grew up, worked and raised her family, Falcon Lake where she lived after retirement and in Texas where she and Barry spent winters for many years. She was an accomplished Highland dancer and dance instructor, a curler, golfer and creator of beautiful quilts, too many to count.
She was truly the matriarch of our family, and we loved her dearly.
We would like to express our gratitude to the wonderful staff at Seine River Retirement Residence and also to the Winnipeg Fire and Paramedic Service.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba or Siloam Mission.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Growing up in the neighborhood I spent many hours at the Hewitt home. Mrs. H was like a second mom to me, and she always made sure she bought extra groceries for the four of us guys (Beaks, Foamy, Matt, Gonzo). She always had a smile on her face and a laugh that would bring joy to all who knew her. Her hospitality continued towards my own family as we had an annual tradition of renting a cottage near theirs. Using their dock to swim and fish from was always better when Mr. and Mrs. H would join us to catch up on our family news. Mrs. H always took a genuine interest in others, and will be truly missed by so many. Our deepest condolences to Maureen, Neil, Dave and Don, and the entire Hewitt family.

Although it was several years ago, I had the great pleasure of spending quality time with this amazing lady. Sheila was fun-loving, kind, and compassionate and always made me feel welcome. Sheila was one of my favourite ladies. Profound condolences to the entire Hewitt family, especially Don. - Posted by: Susan Rebizant (Lawton) (friend of the family) on: Jul 08, 2023
