    Dear Dale, Chris, Chelsea, Issac, Caitlynn and Sierra,

    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you. Sheila was a co-worker of mine for several years at Foothills Chemistry and I feel such sadness to hear of her passing.
    As you mentioned, Sheila had a green thumb. Years ago, she gave me a twig from her Pussy Willow tree which I planted in my garden. The twig grew into a tree of it’s own and I now have a constant reminder of her life right in my back yard!
    May you find comfort in knowing that your wife, mother and grandmother, Sheila, loved her family with all her heart.

    Sincerely with Sympathy,
    Cindy Whitley

    Dear Dale, Chris, Chelsea and Chanel,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Sheila was a co-worker of mine at the Foothills Hospital for many years. We soldiered through the SAIT training program at the same time, but didn’t really get to know each other until we worked the midnight shift together many years ago. I grew very fond of Sheila, and had great respect for her ability to ‘get the job done’. We had quite a few really good laughs, and I don’t think I will ever forget her. She was a very special lady, and she will be missed by many. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time.

    Truly sorry to hear about Sheila. I worked with Sheila in the good old days. She truly did her best for you and was very proud of her family. I enjoyed hanging out at the end of my shift and chatting with Sheila. She had the biggest,best laugh. It brings a smile to me right now to remember that.
    Keep her close to your hearts and know she will always be with you.
