KEVINS, Sheila  - Age 69, loving mother to her daughters and wife to predeceased Dale Whitehead, passed away in the early hours of June 18, 2022 after a short, but courageous battle with brain cancer.

Sheila was born in 1953 in Oldham, England before moving to Canada in 1955.

Sheila was a registered nurse for over 35 years working in the hospital setting, as a community nurse, and in palliative care. 
After 10 years working in palliative care, mom switched gears and began teaching.

She spent many years teaching new students the skills and qualities needed to become kind, supportive and qualified personal support workers.

Mom’s life-long passion was the elderly and ensuring they were cared for with compassion and dignity. This desire brought her back to the healthcare setting and into Long Term Care where she stayed until her passing. She was much loved by her colleagues and the patients she treated.

Sheila will be greatly missed by her friends and family, especially her daughters: Melyssa and Meaghan, and her two grandchildren Keion and Reilly.

Sheila is survived by her daughters, grandchildren, Ollie the golden, Max the doodle and dear friends Shellie Matthews, Sharon Antsee, Jen Danton, Alrolyn Plaza, Peter Smith, Dave Dalton and many, many others.
