Sheila Westwick

Sheila Westwick

Sheila was born in Manchester England to Jesse and James Fox. She was proud to have served in the Land Army during WWII. Sheila came to Canada shortly after the war with two friends, “on a lark”. The friends eventually worked their way to the Cariboo, Sheila got a job at the Silverhorn Lodge at Big Lake, helping the guests on the ranch. Sheila met Fred Westwick while working at Silverhorn. In 1954 they started the Westwick Ranch at Bunting Lake and that is where Sheila lived until her death.

Sheila was many things to many people. Wife, mother, grandma, rancher, artist, friend, but mostly she was one determined, tough little lady. She was always up for a cup of tea if you managed to find her in the house and not off on one of her very long walks.

Sheila is predeceased by both of her brothers, Bernard and Charles Fox of England.

She is survived by her son James Westwick (Amber) and grand-daughter Antonia Westwick. As well as numerous nieces and nephews in both England and Canada, and sister-in-law Audrey of England.

Thanks to all who helped and cared for Sheila during her brief stay in hospital. A special thank you to Annie Hayward and Brandi Young for their kindness and care.
