SHEEHY, Shirleen (nee O'Brien)
Passed away peacefully, at Toronto Rehab, on Thursday August 2nd, 2012. Beloved wife of the late Richard (Dick) Sheehy, loving mother of Ron and his wife Sue, Terry and her husband Patrick Madden and Jacqueline. Predeceased by sisters Kay Tallman, Marjorie (Peggy) O'Brien and brother Dennis O'Brien; brothers-in-law Michael Sheehy and John Dix; sister-in-law Jacqueline K. Sheehy and niece Sky. Survived by sisters- in-law Mary Ann Dix, Noreen Sheehy and Anne O'Brien; nephews Neil and his wife Carita, Marty, Gordon, Gerry, Chris, Geoff, Dusty and Dennis; nieces Meg, Erin and Moira. Cherished Nana of Sean and Fiona. Blessed with uncompromising compassion, a wonderful mind and the gift to always find the silver lining, Shirleen was the woman no one could forget. Shirleen was an independent and resilient woman, who always put the needs of others before her own. She laughed easily, yet possessed great personal conviction, a deep Catholic faith and a profound and nurturing love for those she held close. There was nothing she would not do, to reach out to help. With a voice for radio, a love of music and a remarkable sense of humour, she brought great joy to all that knew her. The Sheehy family invites you to share a celebration of Shirleen's remarkable life during a memorial mass at St. Michael's Cathedral, 65 Bond Street, Toronto at 10:00 AM on Wednesday August 15th. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to the Toronto Rehab Foundation in the memory of Shirleen.
