Sheila was an active member of the church, falling in love with every place she had the pleasure of travelling to on her missions. She retired from the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital in 2015, and in her final years, she resided at Masterpiece Southland Meadows nursing home. Sheila is survived by her three children: Murray Weiss, Cheryl Griffin, Ryan Pattison (Shawn Donaher); six grandchildren: Alysha Gurney (Dan Davies), AJ Feeg, Brooklynn Wilson, Hunter Griffin, Kennedy Griffin, and Jurney Davies.
