After a day of celebrating many of her favourite things, Sheila Constance Root passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, on Saturday May 11th, 2024, at the age of 92 years. Sheila was predeceased by her loving husband, Douglas in 2016.

Sheila was well known for her compassionate, kind and optimistic approach to life. She was caring, devoted and hard working - at home and in her lifelong career as a Nurse. Her nurturing spirit was always there to offer comfort and support to those around her. She touched countless lives and had an incredible impact on many. 

Sheila’s memory will be kept bright by her cherished children, Susan (Ron) and Robert (Linda); and her treasured grandchildren: Eric (Ashley) Elliott and Jasper, Braden, Brooklyn (Jordan) and Harper, and Clayton (Ashley).

Often seen with a rosary in her hand, Sheila prayed daily and had strong faith. She had a wonderful last day and beginning of everlasting life.

The family would like to thank Dr. Haver for his attentive and kind care for Sheila. Thank you to the staff and residents at Points West Living for embracing her into your family.
