1933 – 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom and grandma Sheila Marie Walin (Lee) on November 17, 2014 of Red Deer at the Red Deer Hospice. Sheila was born in Lacombe to John and Mabel Lee and was one of eight children. She was predeceased by her Father, Mother, and her siblings June, Art, Ida, Ken and Ernie and the love of her life Walter Walin. She is lovingly survived by her son John, daughters JoAnne (Chris), Vicki (Len), Elaine (Randy). She also is survived by her grandchildren Erik, Tara, Niki and, Ashton. Great-grandchildren Ranell, Katie, Kendra, Degan, two sisters Audrey and Ruth and numerous nieces and nephews. Sheila married Walter Walin in 1952 and farmed in the Clive area until they retired. They were both avid bikers and on their 50th wedding anniversary Walt and Sheila travelled on a brand new Honda Goldwing 1800 trike, with trailer, from Alberta to Newfoundland and back taking in bike rallies and camping out along the way. Their trip lasted two and a half months and Sheila loved every minute of it. Sheila was an active member in the Christian Motorcycle Association where she met a great many good friends. She loved them dearly. Other passions included her artistry, flowers, collecting rocks and most of all her Christianity. Strong and devoted she never gave up hope about the good in people and good things that people can do. A memorial service will be held at the Deer Park Alliance Church, 2960 – 39th St. Red Deer at 2:00 pm on November 27, 2014. In lieu of flowers the Walin family asks that you please help support the Red Deer Hospice Society to provide for the care and needs of the terminally ill and their families.
