Sheila was the fourth child of William Edwards Waters and his wife Elizabeth (Thomas). She was born above her father’s bakery at 1 Palm Hill/32 Christchurch Lane, Birkenhead, Wirral, England on February 26, 1912. As a child she loved playmaking and was the apple of her father’s eye. Sheila left school at age fourteen and went to work as a dress-maker’s apprentice making five shillings a week. The letters from her sisters in Canada convinced Sheila to emigrate. While waiting for permission to emigrate Sheila worked as a governess for a Welsh family. Finally, in 1933, her papers came and she spent her 21st birthday onboard the “ Adriatic ”. The trip was wonderful and she treasured a coffee spoon she won on board at a whist tournament. In Montreal she boarded “The Dominion” for Calgary. It had plush green seats and a stove at one end to boil water. In 1933 both Barbara and Sheila decided to move to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Sheila was accepted into training at the Victoria Hospital there. She was a student nurse and loved it all. Sheila told many stories about sneaking into the hospital after hours.

In 1945 the family moved to Moose Jaw. Sheila has been a member of St. George’s Anglican Church for over fifty years and was for many years an active member of the WA. She was also a member of the Parents Auxiliary to the Moose Jaw #1 Cub pack – which incidentally was the first group in Canada to be officially allowed to wear long pants. In 1954, Sheila returned to nursing at the Providence Hospital where she worked for twenty-two years. Most of that time was as head nurse on the Surgical Ward. Sheila was active in the Saskatchewan Registered Nurse’s Association for many years. In 1988 the family had a large gathering for their 50th wedding anniversary.

Family and friends were very special to her and she attended or hosted many family gatherings. Elgin and Lottie enjoyed square dancing and she sewed her own square dance dresses. Her three grandchildren held a very special place in her heart and she often had some of her cookies to send with them when they returned home from a visit with her. Her husband, children and grandchildren were never missed with a card and gift on Birthdays, Anniversaries, Valentines Day and Christmas. She opened her home to family, friends and neighbours for the daily coffee gathering that usually included her home baked cakes and cookies. She took a keen interest in the farm and always knew what everyone was doing and how many new baby calves had been born each day.
