Sheila Diane Madland, born November 18, 1959 passed suddenly on February 4, 2021.

Sheila is survived by her husband of 41 years, Brant Madland; their children Andrew (Megan) Madland, Laura (Wes) Kirby, Eric (Samantha) Madland, and Carl (Kenadi) Madland; their grandchildren Ruth (Laura and Wes), Eila (Eric and Sam) and another on the way (Carl and Kenadi);
her mother, Theresa Alisch and sister Brenda (Gordon) Koshinsky; Sister-in-laws Karen (Don) Morrison and Joan (Bill) Ulmer and numerous nieces and nephews.

Sheila was predeceased by her son, Brenden Scott Madland, father, Ian (Mick) Alisch and niece, Lindsay Morrison, father and mother in-law Arnold and Elsie Madland.

Sheila was a compassionate woman; thankless, selfless and resilient. Many of us came to know Sheila as not only a friend, but someone to depend on. She placed the care and need of everyone surrounding her above herself even in her last moments. Let us remember her not only as an outstanding and unforgettable nurse and staple in our community, but as an example of a truly humble being.

Sheila was raised on the countryside of South Allan with her family. Upon graduation at Allan Composite School
she met the love of her life, Brant Madland. She then pursued further education at Siast in Saskatoon where she received her Registered Nursing Diploma.

Brant and Sheila were married on July 21st, 1979 at the Bethel Historical site, just south of Young. They purchased their first quarter of hills and rocks and began breaking it to make way for their farm. With little money available, the two worked endless days and countless hours to build their life together. Their family soon began to grow while the farm expanded. This year would mark their 42nd wedding anniversary and their 40th crop.

Anyone who knew Sheila was aware of the few popular places to find her: hard at work, picking up the 3rd extra shift of the week at the Watrous hospital; delivering a hot, home-made meal to the family at work in the field then operating the combine moments later; or planting her immaculate garden and flower beds or restocking at the season's best greenhouse.

We were so fortunate to call Sheila our friend, coworker, loving wife, mom, and grandma.

We are so thankful for the impact Sheila has been able to have on each of our lives.

Gone far too soon, but remembered for a lifetime.

We love you, our silent hero.

I am so sorry to hear of Sheila's sudden passing . She has always been a rock we can rely on when we take our illnesses to the Hospital. She was exceptionally kind and helpful to me and Ray's family when he spent his last few days in her care. She will be missed by many of us as a devoted nurse and a caring friend. I wish you all well. Sandy

Our deepest condolences to the Madland Family on your loss of Sheila. I worked with Sheila, for a time, at Watrous Hospital and found her to be very hardworking and caring. Our paths would cross over the years as we had mutual friends and also we would run into each other when shopping in Saskatoon. We always stopped and had a good chat. We were shocked to hear of her passing, as she went much to young and was so very deserving of a long relaxing retirement. May memories bring you peace and comfort in the days to come.
