<div itemprop="description">Sheila died June 12, 2016 at the age of 52. Sheila was born in Montreal where she received her education degree, from McGill University, specializing in English as a second language. Sheila moved to Vancouver in her 20's where she met and married her husband Robert (Bob) in 1993. Thereafter she had two wonderful children, Alexandra now age 21 and Benjamin now age 15. <br> <br>Sheila taught ESL in the Vancouver school system for 25 years. She was known as a skilled, caring and compassionate teacher. The many of her ESL students who have gone on to post-secondary education are a testimony to her skill and dedication. <br> <br>Sheila was a beloved wife, mother, sister and daughter. In addition to her husband and children she leaves behind her mother Elizabeth (Betty), sisters Maureen and Trisha, brothers Brendan and Sean and many nieces and nephews. <br> <br>Sheila was taken from us at far too young an age and suffered greatly in the last year of her life. She now rests in peace and will be greatly missed by all of us who loved her greatly. <br> <br>There will be a service held for Sheila at Sacred Heart Parish, in Ladner, on June 20th at 11am followed immediately by a reception at Tsawwassen Springs Golf Club. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you consider a donation to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation in her honour.</div>
