Condolence From: Diana Babor
Condolence: I remain very saddened to have learned of Sheila's untimely loss. I first met Sheila over the phone when she called me in Toronto to let me know that my application for the 1996-1997 Dal Law programme arrived after the deadline. She asked about my circumstances and was quick to laugh at my tongue-in-cheek reply in which I mentioned my dog, Sheba. I was happy when I finally met Sheila in person, and she was happy to tell me that she wanted to meet Sheba, who would come to love visiting her in her office. Sheila welcomed all of us students with open arms, always offering a ready smile, a cheerful word, and caring support. I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to Barry and to Sheila's family and friends. Sheila made the Law Graduate programme the best possible experience. I am also glad she liked dogs, as I'm pretty sure that was why she put my application forward. May She Rest In Peace.

Condolence: So very sorry to hear of Sheila's passing. I have wonderful memories of her kindness, warmth and sense of humour during my time as a graduate student at Dalhousie Law School (1996-97). She was a wonderful friend to each of the students and will be sadly missed by all.

Sincerest condolences to Sheila's family.

Condolence: So sorry Barry and family. Sheila will be greatly missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have met her. No matter the weather or the bad scores she always was able to cheer you up with her smile and dry sense of humor. She was famous for her shortbread at Christmastime. When she offered to bring some all were over the moon! You are in my thoughts at this time and I wish I could have be there yesterday.

Condolence: Barry,
I too express my sadness at learning of Sheila's passing.
The years we worked together and shared the small space of the Law House on Henry Street were times I enjoyed and remember with fondness, including your daily visits at the end of each work day to pick Sheila up. Sheila had a great sense of humour. Engaging in casual conversation on almost any topic was always a pleasure. Sheila would always give as good as she got - on just about any topic.
She was great at her job, a great source of support for so many graduate students.
Sorry that I am unable to attend the Celebration this evening.

Condolence: I was very saddened to learn of Sheila's passing.She carried out all her responsibilities at Dalhousie with professional skill while treating everyone with a very human touch and often with a wry Scottish smile. She helped me enormously especially when I served as Associate Dean, and we shared many happy moments She was also loved by students and as noted she was awarded the Rosemary Gill prize for exceptional service to students. My deepest sympathy to Barry, Sheila's daughter and sister, and all her many relatives and friends. She will be greatly missed.
