Sheila was an extraordinary caring and visionary person. She is the one who brought me to Canada on a working VISA for my tenure track position at the University of Windsor and I owe her everything I accomplished ever since. May you RIP Sheila, you will always be remembered for your compassionate, caring, and visionary leadership.

Sheila was a colleague of mine at the University of Regina. She was Dean of the newly-formed Nursing Faculty and I was Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration. I enjoyed her upbeat personality, her sensible matter-of-fact approach to life, and her wonderfully dry sense of humor. After she retired from U of R, I met up with her for lunch once a year during my annual summer visit to my hometown of Winnipeg. We also got together in Arizona during her winter visits, where we visited museums and botanical gardens and had lovely restaurant lunches. She will be sadly missed.

Sheila was part of "Tres Amigas" for years until we lost one of the 3. Sheila and I knew each other from back at Mendota Mental Health Institute in Wisconsin and we became over the years what one would call "history friends" with a long friendship filled with memories. I will miss her greatly as she was an amazing woman who dearly loved her family and was a devoted friend.

To the Dresen families-Sott
I am so sorry to hear of your mother and grandmother loss. We were classmates in the Class of 60 B and enjoyed our class re-unions that we had every 5 years except for COVID. Sheila was always one of the brightest in her class and we knew she would go far in her nursing. I will miss seeing her and hearing her laughter as she made some comments in regards to those "good ole days"" Till we meet again.

Shared many special moments with Sheila as a member of the Winnipeg Probus Club. She was a modest person who had accomplished so much during her lifetime. It was such a privilege to have known her and to have shared time with her on Club activities. She will be missed by many.

Sheila was an amazing person - smart, accomplished, fearless (especially to do things that would have horrified her Mother (Aunt Edith), BUT that would have made both her Dad (Uncle George) and her Mother very proud - they were able to experience many of her accomplishments before they died. We saw her in some of her travels - in Toronto but missed getting to visit her in PEI - but she and Scott got to attend Anthony's wedding in Toronto. We also enjoyed visits from Warren when he was in Canada. She travelled more than I had realized (Miko is envious altho has also seen most of the same areas). She was a super grandmother and very proud of her grandchildren. She will be missed by her many friends who had the benefit of knowing her for many years. RIP Sheila.

Norm and I first knew Sheila back in United College during the 1950’s. We were good friends. We reconnected with her when she returned to Winnipeg. She was an amazing person and incredibly accomplished. She played the organ at our wedding. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.
