On Monday, Dec. 9, 2019, at the age of 82 years, and after a long battle with dementia, Sheila Wettstein of Fort Macleod was set free to join her Father in Heaven.

She is also survived by her brother Eric (Eileen); children Michael (Faïzilée), Christopher (Holly), Katherine (Glenn) and James (Amy); grandchildren Sarah (Ricardo), Amanda, Matthew, Emily, Jacob, Abby, Samuel, Kelty, Eric, Maren and Marla; great grandchildren Dévi and Kylian; dear sister-in-law Wilma, as well as several nieces, nephews and other extended family members.  

Sheila is predeceased by her parents William and Catherine; brothers William, James and Richard; sisters Aileen and Letitia. She is also predeceased by her half-brothers George and Edward; and half-sisters Margaret and Maureen, all from Australia.

A special thank you to all the staff of Extendicare Fort Macleod, as well as the numerous doctors, nurses and care-givers who have kindly cared for our dear mother over the years.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020, between 12 noon and 3 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in Fort Macleod, 643 20th St. If desired, please bring a potluck item to share, and wear pink and/or purple in honour of Sheila’s love of these things.

Most of Sheila’s life was devoted to becoming a better human and a kinder person, so in lieu of flowers please honour her memory by being kind to others and remembering to love yourselves.
