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.
