We have only just heard the sad news of Sheila’s passing. Sheila was a dear neighbour from our days in Ajax and our families always kept in touch. Your Mom gave my twin and I our first pets, two white kittens, Puff and Fluff. Jean and Scott, I remember attending your parent’s beautiful wedding. They were so devoted to each other. You have our deepest sympathy, Janet (Evans ) and John Woodbridge.

Sheila, my ‘kid sister’, was a triple citizen. She was born British, became Canadian and then American. She used this qualification to bond together family and friends on both sides of the Atlantic and both sides of the 49th parallel. Her ability to draw people together will be sorely missed.

Dear Jean and Scott, Your mom was a dear friend to our family and your mom always made sure to do something special for my children, Melanie and Bryan, when birthdays or holidays came around. She was always so kind and generous. We could not have asked for better neighbors to my parents than your mom and dad. She was always part of us and I appreciated her. Our love and prayers go out to you as you celebrate her today. April and Doug Howard

So sorry to hear of Sheila's passing. She always considered herself to be my "big sister". She introduced me to junk candy when I was in her charge during one of the many visits my family made to Ajax to stay with the Fletchers. We talked on the phone these last few years mostly about animals of course. She will be missed. Especially her occasional phone calls reminding me of my moms birthday.

My sincere & heart felt condolences to my cousin Sheila's family on leaning of her recent passing. I have no recollection of our paths ever crossing during my life time however Sheila mother Aunt Agnes when I last met her in the 70s offered to take me on a concord flight to Canada. an opportunity I regret not taking her up on it would have been a wondeful experience. I am sure Sheila she was a reflection of her mothers kindness & generosity. RIP cousin Shiela Andy Sayers, Blackham East Sussex. England

Mr Chris Sayers-Leavy - on behalf of his cousin Wendy Sutcliffe. Sheila and I were cousins of a similar age but had no connection for many years due to the family emigrating. Over recent years we corresponded regularly and built up a bond catching up with news old and new. I have happy memories of the time mum and I spent with Sheila and Tom for Jeans wedding. Sheila was kind, thoughtful, caring and sympathetic by nature and demonstrated this in not just family and friends but in her love of animals too. I will miss our regular chats. R.I.P Sheila, until we meet again. Wendy Sutcliffe. Woodplumpton, Lancashire, England.

I am so sorry for your loss! Sheila was a special friend to me. Always willing to help me when I had concerns about my poodles! I bought my first poodle from Sheila and he was the light of my life! She was with me when he crossed the rainbow bridge! I will miss her very much! May she be in heaven in peace and happiness.

Mr Chris Sayers-Leavy left a message on September 4, 2021:
My dear long lost cousin, I remember the day the family emigrated to Canada in 1954 and then after that, contact was lost over time. I subsequently reconnected with Sheila in 2016 after my father passed away and we then struck up a regular E mail exchange. Sheila also wrote regularly to my late wife, Jenny, and they very much enjoyed exchanging letters in the traditional fashion. We did not always see ‘eye to eye’ and lived in very different worlds - but we never fell out at all - as at the end of the day what do have in life other than your family? RIP Sheila - I will sorely miss you and our Email exchanges. Chris Sayers-Leavy, Broadstairs IoT. Kent. England.
