Shiela O’Leary
January 27th, 1949 - April 16th, 2020
O’Leary, Shiela (nee Holmes) born January 27th, 1949, passed away at home surrounded by her family on April 16th, 2020 after a short and courageous battle with cancer. Shiela was the beloved wife of Brian O’Leary for 52 years. Loving mother of Darrell O’Leary (Crissy) and Nicole Ivison (Chad). Proud grandmother of Rhianne & Quinn Ivison, Logan, Zach and Sam O’Leary. Dear sister of the late Robert Holmes (Roberta), Elaine Drury (Keith), Carolyn Beaton (Bob), Brian Holmes (Cathy), Marilyn McNish (Gary), Scott Holmes (Betty) and the late Wendy Murphy (Harry). Dear sister in law of Sharon Bakker (Ron), Ronnie O’Leary, Ralph O’Leary, Marie Mortensen (Ernie), David O’Leary (Melanie) and Glen O’Leary. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews and cousins. Shiela had a feisty personality to the end, retiring from her beloved job supporting the staff and families at Wellington Street Daycare only a few short months ago. She will be remembered as a “favorite” to many with her contagious laugh, sometimes a snort, and her joy for a good party. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. If so desired, donations in Shiela’s memory can be made to Stevenson Memorial Hospital or Matthew’s House.

Shiela was the life of the party every single day at work. The kitchen was the hub of WDC, because of her. You could hear her laugh when you were upstairs! She was always there for a good laugh, or for a good talk. She had so much care and love for everyone she knew. Shiela will always be remembered for her very fun laugh (she'd even laugh after you'd startled her from walking into the laundry room!) My thoughts to the family.
