I am writing to you with the very sad news that my wife and partner of 38 years, Sheila Macdonald, died unexpectedly aboard yesterday evening aboard ship, March 9, 2021.

Sheila devoted her life to helping others. She worked at such places as the CNIB, March of Dimes, Group Homes for people with severe mental and physical disabilities, as well as our bookstore. She was a caring and loving mother to our two daughters and two foster children.

We sailed thousands of miles together using the sails that she sewed. She was also very skilled at woodworking and her passion for cooking and baking was always appreciated. She was 62 years old.

As per her request there will be no service.

She will be sorely missed.
