Sheila Ruth Allan
It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Sheila Ruth Allan, age 61, of Springhill, formerly of Amherst, NS and Sussex, NB. Sheila passed away on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre with family by her side.
Born in Sussex, NB, she was a daughter of the late Cecil and T..Alberta (Thorne) Jeffries.
Sheila was a graceful and gracious spirit who lived her life truly appreciating the people in it. In return for this, she was loved by everyone who she met. She had a zest for life and threw her energy into her many passions; gardening, nature, art, traveling, community and most of all her family and friends. She had an amazing sense of humor that would sneak up on you from behind and a winning smile that rarely left her face. Sheila was the most loyal of friends, quietly strong, positive and determined to believe in good.
She will be eternally missed by her partner Stephen Millard, Springhill, NS; daughter Nicole Allan (James Kaloc), Pictou County, NS; grandchildren Joseph, Courtney, Dustin, Aven, and Theodore; siblings John (Maureen) Jeffries, Fredericton, Mary Ellen (Lorne) Graves, Boundary Creek, NB and Treva Jeffries (Colin MacFarlane), Moncton, NB; many nieces and nephews; and extended family, the Allan’s and Mike Chiang.
She was predeceased by her sons infant Matthew in 1975 and Raymond in 2009; brother Nelson.
