It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of Sheila Moore on July 13th, 2019 after a short illness. She was the devoted wife of John (d.2017), cherished mother of Sarah, Simon and Allison and beloved ‘Granny’ to Jack, Charlie, Meg and Alex. Sheila is survived by her brother Andrew and was predeceased by her beloved sister Jean in 1996. She will be fondly remembered by her loving family in England.
Sheila grew up in England, and qualified as a Nightingale Nurse at St. Thomas’s Hospital in London where she met John. With a young family, they made the brave decision to emigrate to Canada in 1965. Together, they built a life in Midland, made lifelong family friends and spent many summers sailing on Georgian Bay. Sheila was passionate about family, friends, politics and caring for the environment for her grandchildren’s future.
We have lost a beautiful, caring and compassionate mother, granny, sister, auntie and friend.
Donations to the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre in Midland would be much appreciated. This was an organization that Sheila loved and supported for many years.
At Mum’s request, a private family celebration will be held.
