Sheila Harrop

March 17, 1928 - May 9, 2021


Sheila Gordon Harrop (nee Pirie)
March 17, 1928 – May 9, 2021

Sheila passed away on May 9th, Mother’s Day, at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island with her family by her. A wife, sister, aunt, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she was loved by all. Sheila was the hub of a large extended family. She is survived by her husband of 70 years Trevor, her four children: Jim (Jen), Catherine (Bill), Ian (Judy) and David (Kaoru), 12 grandchildren and 7 ½ great-grandchildren, and her sister (Netta McNab and family in Scotland).

A lover of the outdoors, a world traveller, an avid tennis player and most of all an incredible loving and caring person. Sheila cared for her family and the extended circle of friends including the DeRosa family (New Denver), Arlene Bastion (Singapore), Alan Murphy (Japan), Richmond Tennis Women’s league and UBC Faculty Wives Hiking Club.

Born in Motherwell, Scotland, Sheila immigrated to Vancouver with her fiancée Trevor. They married in 1951, then moved to New Denver, B.C., followed by Halifax, N.S., and then back to B.C. (Campbell River). In 1961, it was off to Iowa (USA) for graduate school and Sheila for Taxidermy training. They returned to B.C. (Vancouver) in 1965, where they lived until 1989. Sheila and Trevor retired to New Denver, the base for many worldwide travel holidays. In 2017, they moved to Vancouver and finally to Meadowbrook on Salt Spring Island to be closer to family.

Sheila passed away after a brief illness, at peace with her world. Zoom enabled the family to share and support her in her final days. Thank you to all the staff at Lady Minto Hospital and our wonderful support workers. No service or flowers by family request. Donations may be made to the BC SPCA, in honour of all her dog friends.
