Sheila grew up in Nova Scotia and spent many summers
in the St. Margaret’s Bay area. Glen Margaret to
Peggy’s Cove was her stomping grounds. Sheila married Neville Lindsay in July 1954 and moved west to Calgary where they enjoyed many years in the Stampede city. They raised three children in Calgary and were very active in the community and service
organizations. Neville passed away in 1983. Sheila moved to Qualicum Beach to enjoy the ocean, family and community. She was very active in golfing, sailing,
floral & creative arts and a number of community
interest groups. She loved travelling, sailing and was able to explore many parts of Vancouver Island.
Sheila really enjoyed her garden and the beaches,
especially when sharing the time with her children and grandchildren. Seashells, sandcastles, beach walks and stories were all part of her life in Qualicum
Beach. She also enjoyed her many trips to other parts of Canada visiting family and friends.
Sheila is survived by her three children, eight
grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
