It was with deep sorrow we learned of the passing of Sheila Atkinson last week. Ian and Sheila were a part of the SOL for over 30 years and were frequent visitors to Jersey until they left to live in Spain some years ago.
They were of tremendous help to Michael and myself when we moved into No 15. Expert decoraters, they virtually went through the house from top to bottom. We have happy memories of evenings spent talking and sharing ideas, hopes, and dreams.
After much deliberation they decided to go and live in Spain and had a home there for many years but eventually returned to Britain due to Sheila’s ill-health. Nursed devotedly by Ian, Sheila fought her health problems to the very end, both of them bolstered by their deep and abiding Pagan beliefs. Michael and I offer Ian our love and spiritual support at this time.
Please light your Passing Candles for a brave and loving lady who, despite ill-health kept her Faith in the sancity of Life to the very end. Ian I know, will miss her so much and is now left alone.
Those of you wishing to contact Ian concerning Funeral information please do call him on 01908 473793.
He would appreciate your presence at the funeral if it is possible, if not then a phone call will help him through this sad time.
Donations to local stroke charities would be appreciated please, instead of floral tributes, thank you.
