Obituary

Obituary for Sheila Theresa Gilbride

Sheila Theresa Gilbride (Mulligan)
At 92 years of age, Sheila Gilbride passed away peacefully at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) on May 27, 2019.
Sheila was born on July 28, 1926 in Sudbury into an Irish family - the sixth of seven children born to Judge T. Murray Mulligan and May (Flanagan) Mulligan. Sheila was predeceased by her parents, four sisters – Helen McKinnon, Bessie Singbush, Mary Kierans and Eileen O’Neill and two brothers – Murray Mulligan and D’Arcy Mulligan. Her stepmother Matilda (Jackman) Mulligan and her granddaughter Sarah Gilbride also predeceased her.
After schooling in both Sudbury and Toronto, Sheila moved to Port Arthur in 1946. In 1948, she married Patrick Gilbride and they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary this past November. Sheila was a stay at home mother to their four children. She had a great love for them, an interest in their lives and careers and that of her seven grandchildren. Her fifty-six summers spent at Hawkeye Lake with her children, grandchildren, their friends and visits from her extended family and friends were some of her fondest memories.
Earlier in her life, Sheila volunteered for St. Joseph Hospital, Meals on Wheels, the Cancer Society and the Volunteer Bureau. She was a past president and member of the Catholic Women’s League of Corpus Christi Church for over 65 years.
Sheila enjoyed golfing, skiing and sailing on Lake Superior. She loved the outdoors, reading and to travel. After many years of reading about places, she felt very fortunate to be able to travel to many countries around the world.
Sheila is survived by her husband Patrick (Paddy) and their four children – Maureen Twigg (John) Thunder Bay, David (Dorothy) Invermere BC, Patrick Thunder Bay and Kate Fyfe (Joe) Sudbury. Sheila “Nana” is also survived by her seven grandchildren Michael Twigg (Kristin Fossum), Jennifer Twigg (Denny Winkler), Neill Gilbride (Sophie Piché), Shannon Fyfe (Aaron Percival), Ian Fyfe (Kayla Guse), Joey Fyfe and Sheila Fyfe, and her four great grandchildren – Ruby Twigg, Stella and Maibel Winkler & Leo Gilbride plus many nieces and nephews.
Funeral services at Corpus Christi Church where she was a devout member since 1950. Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 31st, 2019.
In lieu of flowers donations to Dew Drop Inn or St. Joseph Foundation would be appreciated. Online condolences may be made at www.sargentandson.com.

Condolences from all the Pat and Romeo Allard family. We had so many fun family times together, on Hill St and at camp. Sheila loved being surrounded by children, the more the merrier.

So Sorry to Hear about Sheila`s passing . My parents Ed and Nora along with my brothers and sister shared some wonderful memories with the Gilbride family from a very early age. Sheila and my mother would play bridge together so often chatted with her to catch up on family events and what David was up to. We enjoyed many a Sunday as a family at Haweye lake and later the Gilbrides were very generous in letting Janis , Sean and I use the cottage when were were visiting from Vancouver.
Such a kind lady with a beautiful personality and sense of humour will surely be missed. My deepest sympathies. Tom , Janis and Sean Servais

To the Gilbride clan, our condolences on Sheila’s passing. We are sure that the many fond memories within your circle of family and friends will be a great comfort. I (Jim) recall the Gilbride home on Hill Street and/or camp at Hawkeye as being a place to hang out, with Sheila being quite welcoming (tolerant) of a bunch of teenagers. One of her many fine traits.
Thinking of your family, Susie and Jim Crooks
