Sheila Elaine Strang was born in Daysland, Alberta on October 5th, 1925 and passed away peacefully with her daughter by her side on November 14th, 2015 in Coldstream, B.C. at the age of 90 years. Sheila will be lovingly remembered by her daughter; Heather of Coldstream, B.C., her grandchildren; Ron (Nadine) of Victoria, B.C., Debbie and Angie (Drew) of Vernon, B.C., her great-grandchildren; Alyssa (Jon) of Edmonton, Alberta, JD and Billy along with extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Nancy.
Sheila was a very active woman who loved the outdoors. She grew up not knowing her biological mother and yet she herself was an amazing mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who had a very special individual bond with everyone in the family. She always wanted the best for her friends and family and went out of her way to help in any way she could.
In respecting Sheila’s wishes, she was cremated and no funeral service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Sheila to the Canadian Cancer Society #104 – 3402 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C.
