Sheila was born at Gran Gibson’s Home in Saltcoats, SK on November 15, 1932. She was raised on the family farm, the sixth child in a family of 8 (4 boys/4 girls) during the depression and WW2. Sheila was forever a Saskatchewan farm girl, visiting the family farm often and claiming she could smell the Saskatchewan harvest all the way to Lethbridge.

Sheila moved to Vancouver to attend hairdressing school, returning to Saltcoats where she ran her own shop for a few years. She then joined the RCAF and went to Ste Jean, PQ for training and was subsequently posted in Ottawa.

Sheila met her husband, Daniel Lenaour, also a RCAF member, and they were married in Ottawa in June of 1956. Shortly after they were posted to Churchill, MB they started their family with the birth of David. Their second son, Howard, sadly passed away shortly after birth. The family was then posted to Whitehorse where Michael was born.

After numerous other postings, they moved to Lethbridge when Daniel started working with the RCMP.

In the mid-seventies Sheila returned to work at the Woodward’s Food Floor, later Safeway, where she made many lifelong friends.

Auntie Sheila was a favorite with her numerous nieces and nephews, many of whom came to stay at her home as they began to explore their own independence. Sheila was much loved for her wit and wisdom. Many hours were spent at her kitchen table with Sheila listening, questioning and providing sound advice to friends of David and Michael and later her grandchildren who sought her out. She was fiercely proud and protective of her sons, her daughters in law and her grandchildren.

Sheila was predeceased by her husband Daniel, infant son Howard, her parents, four brothers and two sisters. Sheila is survived by her devoted sister Verna, and her loving sons David (Sheila) and grandchildren Kelley, Patrick (Carly) and Stuart and Michael (Lorelie) and grandchildren Danielle (Kris), Taylor (Paula).

October 2, 2015

Nancy succumbed at the age of 72 years to colon cancer that was first identified in May, 2012 and gradually spread to her liver and lungs. She is survived by her devoted husband and best friend of 57 years, John. He and their daughter Heather were at her side when she passed in Palliative Care at St. Michael’s Health Centre in Lethbridge, AB.

Proud Nana of Dexter Huizenga, Lauren and Will Kwan and Stella and Grace McTaggart.

Also survived by brother-in-law David McTaggart (Susan) of Arlington, Virginia and their children Neil (Andrea) of Toronto and Jennifer (Shawn) of Guelph, ON. Nancy took her early schooling in Aurora, ON and then attended Toronto Teacher’s College. She and John began married life in Walkerton, ON where Nancy taught at Walkerton Public School. Nancy had an exceptional contralto voice and loved singing from an early age. She completed her Grade 10 singing at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. She sang many solos and won many awards and scholarships at the Kiwanis Music Festival in Toronto. Highlights of her singing career included singing with each of the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus and Calgary Festival Chorus.

Unfortunately, Nancy encountered many medical issues in her life necessitating seventy surgeries and considerable extreme pain. Her pain tolerance was remarkable. Acute care nurses in many hospitals across Canada called her “one tough nut”! The majority of her surgeries were spine related. Nancy credited Regina Neurosurgeons Dr. Joseph Buwembo and the late Dr. Krishna Kumar with many of her pain control successes. John was her caregiver throughout all her surgeries and procedures. Rose Harding provided exceptional home care and compassion for almost ten years. All who knew Nancy will miss her terrific enthusiasm for life, her always positive attitude, her beautiful smile and her concern for others regardless of her own situation. At Nancy’s request there will not be a funeral service. A private celebration of her life may well be held at a later date.
