In Memory Of Rodericks, Sheila


No visitation

Private ceremony
Kane & Fetterly chapel

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Sheila Odette Rodericks on the 31st of December 2020 at The McGill University Medical Centre, Montreal. Sheila was born in India, moved to the United Kingdom and eventually made her home in Montreal, Canada where she worked at Concordia University for many years until her retirement.

Sheila lived life to the fullest and had a strong life long passion for sport, music and travel. She was a loving daughter and sister, a caring aunt and a faithful friend, who will be missed immensely. Our family would like to thank all those who had helped Sheila tremendously in the latter part of her life and we will be forever grateful for the love and kindness shown to her.

Sheila has now travelled on to her eternal rest. We will celebrate her life and farewell her in an online service on the 29th of January 2021.

There are no adequate words to express the sadness I feel over the loss of my beautiful Aunt Sheila. Aunt Sheila excelled in everything she attempted including singing and sports. I will always remember her singing "We'll Meet Again." Also her love of sports. I dared not call her while Nadal was playing tennis! I will most definitely miss our phone calls. My sincere condolences to all Aunt Sheila's family and friends. Aunt Sheila "We will Meet Again" in heaven. Love you. RIP

My wife Gillian and I were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Aunty Sheila but not before, to use a cricketing metaphor, she had completed a brilliant century in the inning of life that inspired and brought joy to the many that were fortunate enough to have witnessed at least part of it. I still have fond memories of the several visits she made in the 1980’s and 1990s to the flat of my parents in Tooting. Aunty Sheila and my Dad, Max Jason, were not only first cousins but were also of the same 1920 vintage that encapsulated a certain “joie de vivre”. May she attain eternal peace! We also offer our sincere condolences to the immediate family and other loved ones that she leaves behind.

My sincere condolences Allyson to you and your family on the loss of your Aunt Sheila. It is remarkable that she was able to live independently til her 100th year. I knew her from Concordia University, as she was secretary to the Head of the Department of Chemistry when I began teaching there. She set high standards, but was very helpful to me, and I still have my hair cut by her hairdresser whom she recommended, Kathy, After my retirement I would meet Sheila at times at Miriam Posner's for supper, when she returned to live in Montreal after spending time in UK. I understood her love of tennis, as my mother loved watching tennis also.
Thank you for inviting me to the service - it is very sad for people not to gather, but I hope it brings you a sense of closure. May she rest in peace after a life well lived.
Sincerely, Mary Baldwin.
