Sheelagh passed away peacefully on December 12, 2022 after a three-year stay in long-term care. Born in Montreal, Sheelagh was the oldest of the four children of Clara McCubbin and Leslie Myers. She is survived by her sister Joan (late Wayne), brother Robert (Linda), and brother John (Diane) who treasure their memories of her. She married Grant Van Vliet in 1958 and they had four children: Karen Tripp (Trevor), Keith Scott, Kevin, Kim Allinson (Ken), and a grandson Stephen. She loved them with all her heart. She was blessed with 11 nieces and nephews who stole her heart: Derek (Joanne), Keith, Scott (Robin), Johanna (Michael), Luke, Craig, Alison, Jessica, Harrison, Kenny, and Mac.
Sheelagh loved her family, Christmas, music, dancing, knitting, dogs, camping, travelling and babies. She took great pleasure in giving generously to people in need.
A sincere thank you to the team at CHSLD Sutton, Physiotherapie S.Mobile and massage therapist Nancy Dover for taking such good care of her for the past three years.
Sheelagh is likely dancing once again, singing songs of joy and watching over all of us. Her love will live forever in our hearts.
The family will have a private gathering at a later date.
