BONDESEN, Sheila nee Gaskell, Armitage October 26, 1925 - November 2, 2012 Predeceased by her husband, Fred Bondesen, on June 28, 2012, Sheila leaves her family: daughter Pat Heeley; son, Ron Armitage (Anna); step-daughter, Bev Vink; eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Sheila lived on the Saanich Peninsula most of her life and worked for several years at both the Bay and Kmart. She and Fred had a loving, laughing marriage and they both liked to entertain their many friends. Mom was a kind, gentle person who loved her life and her family. She accepted things as they were and went from there. She took pride in her appearance and maintained her dignity and humour to the end. Thank you to the staff at Sidney Care Home, for making her last few months so comfortable and comforting. A celebration of Sheila's life will be held at 637 Clayton Road, North Saanich, on Saturday, November 24, from 2:00 to 5:00.
