Sheila Rogers (formerly Nelson)

November 20, 1940 — June 25, 2018

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our wife and mother Sheila Rogers at the age of 77 on Monday, June 25, 2018.  Sheila was born to Raymond and Dorothy on November 20,1940 in England.

She is survived by her husband Malcolm Rogers; children Ralph (Louise) Seddon, Craig (Marion) Nelson, Mike Nelson and Nicole (Troy) Larabie; 10 grandchildren Brandy, Craig Jr., Leaha, Kylee, Kenny, Starley, Liam, Nigel, Dakota, and Peyton; 5 great-grandchildren Kody, Bryce, Sophie, Ada and Alaina; brother and sisters: Ruby, June, Edna, Clifford, John, and Bernard; numerous extended family and friends.

Sheila was an amazing lady full of love and life.  Her biggest treasures were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Her door was always open for all.  She started her career at a telephone company in England at a young age where she later proceeded to continue her career at the Manitoba Telephone System retiring in April 1997 after 20 years of service.  Sheila was not fully ready to retire, so she started working at Walmart in the fabric department, where she continued her career there when she moved to Portage quitting at the age of 66.  Sheila was a lady that loved to travel and being in the sun. She enjoyed sewing and knitting making dresses, blankets, and wraps for all her grandchildren. Shelia had a love of gardening and anything flowers. Often if you needed to find her she would be in her yard either relaxing or tending to her flower beds. She was involved with the Royal Purple starting in Thompson and continued in Portage la Prairie.  Sheila fell ill in October 2017 after suffering from a stroke which made her remain in the hospital till passing.  She always took one day at a time living life to the fullest.
