It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sheila Anne Vandenberg following a brief courageous battle with cancer. Our mom slipped away peacefully in the presence of her four sons. She was predeceased by her husband Dirk (1984), and cherished friend Tom McKenzie (1997). Sheila is survived by her sons Brian (Angele), Dale (Natasha), Mark, and Rick (Carla), many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as sisters Edith, Joan and Beth. Mom was loved, and continues to be, by everyone she knew. A Memorial Service will be held at Valley View Funeral Home 14660 72 Avenue in Surrey on Saturday, January 12 at 10:00 a.m. with a celebration to follow. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for all the staff at Royal Columbian Hospital and Irene Thomas Hospice for their dedication in keeping mom comfortable during her final days. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to BC Children's Hospital.
