Argent; Audrey Sheila, 1930 – 2014. Our beloved mother has passed away at the age of 83. Known to friends and family as Sheila she will always be remembered for her stories and poems forever recited for anyone that would lend an ear. Sheila’s early life was spent in India where she was born as well as England where she grew up and married the love of her life Bert. Following their marriage they immigrated to Canada where they raised their family and moved across Canada to finally settle in Chilliwack. Mom loved to garden and spent hours tending to her many varieties of roses and ornamental plants throughout her yard. She was an avid knitter and crafted an abundance of gifts for all her children and grandchildren as well as many friends. These precious items will always be treasured. Mom loved her family and showed them off proudly by displaying all of their pictures throughout her home. She loved animals, and found friendship and affection with the many cats and dogs that she gave a loving home to over the years. “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.” Sheila is predeceased by her husband (Bert) who she was married to for 62 years. She is survived by her children Yvonne (Ron), David (Colleen), Michael (Stephanie), Jacqueline (Brett), Nancy (Jim) and grandchildren, Nigel (Danielle), Alicia (Andy), Garrett (Sarah), Leanne, Shelby, Brittney (Spencer), Brendan, Chelsea, Gabrielle, Chloe, Daniel, Marcus & Gregory, as well as great grandchildren Liam and Presley. A special thank you to the Doctors and Staff for their care and kindness. The tide recedes but leaves behind
Bright seashells on the sand
The sun goes down but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land
The music stops & yet
It flows in sweet refrain
For every joy that passes
Something beautiful remains.
We will always miss you Mom. Love you forever.
