Sheila Day

Sheila Rae Day (nee Casey) June 13, 1958 - June 23, 2020

Sheila Rae Day passed peacefully with family by her side on June 23, 2020, after a brave battle with cancer.

Sheila will be deeply missed by her partner Paul Crammond and her children James (Danielle), Lisa (Daniel) and Emily (David). She was the cherished sister of Tim (Paget), and beloved Aunt to Hannah, Ethan, Samantha, Margaret, and Nathaniel. She was predeceased by her parents James Casey and Margaret Casey (nee Kennedy).

Sheila was born in Ottawa and moved many times as a child across Ontario and Quebec as a result of her father’s service in the RCAF. She graduated from Laurentian University, before moving to Toronto to pursue a successful career as a Chartered Accountant.

Sheila was an enthusiastic cottager from a young age, spending time at her grandparent’s cottage on Crow Lake with her many cousins, and continued to cottage for several decades in Muskoka, enjoying time with many friends. Sheila loved to travel and treasured her visits to Naples, Florida, where she loved to walk on the beach with her partner Paul. She loved to read and was an avid book club member, and drew great joy more recently golfing and curling with her friends.

Known for her quiet intelligence, independence, gentleness and grace, she will be remembered as a loving mother, dedicated friend, and fantastic baker. Sheila will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be held at Blessed Trinity Parish 3220 Bayview Ave, North York on Monday June 29th 2020 from 11:00am-12:30pm. Due to COVID-19, a private funeral will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to consider a donation in Sheila’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Terry Fox Foundation.

Condolences can be left at the R.S. Kane Website.

Jim, Lisa, Emily and families I am very sorry for your loss. I will always remember the summers Sheila would come to Nan and Bamps’ cottage. She would keep me company for the two months we were out of school and we had a wonderful time swimming and suntanning on Neals’ raft. We had a group of girls ( about 5 or 6 of us ) that would chum around, take long walks or sit and talk girl talk. I am saddened that we grew apart when my husband and I moved out to Calgary Alberta and never reacquainted when we moved back home here to Marmora Ontario 4 years ago. Sheila will be remembered to me as a quiet, intelligent, strong lady. I was blessed knowing her then and will keep her memory with me always. Colleen Doyle (Connelly)

My deepest sympathies to Sheila's family. I had the privilege of getting to know Sheila through curling. It was a pleasure to curl with her and our post-game conversations were always interesting. Sheila will be greatly missed.

Will never forget first meeting Sheila many many years ago at Jim and Margs house, and over the years at various events.

I was always struck (and intimidated!) by the intelligence and depth of soul in her eyes.

A beautiful person in every way!! Our hearts are with the whole family.

Jim, Lisa, Emily, our thoughts and prayers are with you, Paul and your entire family.

We have so many wonderful memories of Sheila. From the family camping trips to the Canada Day celebrations and the Friday night pizza get togethers after skiing lessons. Wonderful times!

So while we miss Sheila, we cherish our memories of the happy times we had.

With much love,

Our condolences to Paul, James, Lisa, Emily and families. We have many fond memories of spending time with Sheila. We had the pleasure of travelling with her in Italy and France, and always looked forward to seeing her just down the avenue in Naples, Florida. We will miss her kind, quiet presence in our lives.

I will always have such great memories of Sheila at our family get together's.
What a lovely, warm and friendly person to have had the pleasure of spending some time with.
Thinking of her children Jim, Lisa and Emily, her partner Paul, brother Tim and all of those who loved her during this trying time.

Our deepest condolences to Paul, James, Lisa, Emily and families.
We were introduced to Sheila and Paul several years ago on a trip shared with friends on the Midi Canal. Those memories of good food, wine, conversation and camaraderie continued in Naples Fla at homes of Chris & John O'Sullivan and Pat & Laurie Kennedy.
Sheila will be missed. She was not one to be loud or boisterous. But rather had a certain quiet nature, taking pleasure in the simple things--a good chat, a glass of wine, and the company of friends.
Our hearts are filled with sadness and sorrow, but know her journey this last year is finally over.

We are very sorry for your great loss. Your mother was a caring, empathetic, kind and thoughtful person. When we moved into our home in 2003, she made us feel so welcomed. She was part of our milestones and was there for our greatest milestones, our 3 children. She was always so happy to speak with us and we enjoyed every moment. Even when she knew she would not be home for Halloween, she would bring some goodies for our kids.....that's a special kind of person. Every time she spoke about all of you, she glowed. She was so proud of you all. She was a wonderful mother and it shows through the great children she has.
She will be greatly missed in our court.
We have prayed for your mother during this time and are very sorry for what has happened. Now God has taken her and her memory will live on through you.
We have made a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society on behalf of your mother.
