Sheila Florence Stringer



STRINGER, Sheila Florence

 Born November 2nd, 1931 the eldest daughter to Winnifred and William Robinson of Connaught, Ontario. She died May 15th, 2020 in Timmins.

Keeping her memory alive are her children Mark, daughter-in-law Diane, sons Don (Loretta), and David (Diana) and eldest daughter Laura (Barry) Laraman. Sheila lives on in her grandchildren Amanda, Carly, Marissa, Leandra, Paul, Sarah, Meaghan, and Jennifer, and her great-grandchildren Keira, Taytum, Reuben, Gwen, and Boyd. Beloved sister of Evelyene (Ron) Gable, Victor (Lois) Robinson, and brother-in-law John (Reg) Stringer. She is predeceased by her Robinson brothers Donald, Bill, Reginald, and Frank. She joins her husband George Kenneth and son Ross in peace.

In the time we shared together, she raised us, taught us, corrected us, comforted us, encouraged us, and supported us in all things. Her love and her care, ever-present, never failing brought us into adulthood. Now that she is gone, the task of our lifetimes is to live up to her example, and her unqualified love.

A sister, mother, grandmother, and friend, she always had an extra pair of slippers for visitors and fresh vegetables from her garden to share. She had a lifelong commitment to St. Paul’s Anglican church and made many lasting friendships there. When not in her garden, she could be found at the Porcupine Hardware Kitchen Shop helping community members find just what they were looking for and more. Deeply rooted to her friends, her family, and her faith, when not tending to South Porcupine, she loved to travel and see the world.

The family wishes to acknowledge and share a profound thank you to Maria Victoria  “Marvic” Romero who has, for the last 6 and a half years, accompanied and cared for Sheila with infectious joy, love, and commitment.

A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Schwertfeger, Dr. Auger, and the staff at the Golden Manor as well as Mary Cochrane for their care and compassion.

Throughout her life, she exemplified kindness, strength, and generous listening. Donations made in her memory to the Spruce Hill Lodge in South Porcupine or the Golden Manor in Timmins will be gratefully acknowledged by the family. We will determine an occasion for honoring, remembering, and saying goodbye to Sheila when that becomes possible.
