Obituary

Sheila Margaret Pickett (nee Keogan)

April 22, 1930 - May 26, 2021

Sheila grew up with two brothers and two sisters.  As an adult, once she met the love of her life, Lloyd Pickett, she became very busy raising a family and running a home.  Lloyd worked both the farm and was a railroader, which left Sheila with much work to run the home. Sheila and Lloyd always had a very busy and social lifestyle.  They often were having lots of fun hosting family and friends in their home. For her own enjoyment she loved to dance with Lloyd who always made sure there was room on his dance card.  She curled for many years and was an avid curling fan watching every curling bonspiel on television and knowing every player.

Sheila spent a great deal of time in the kitchen either baking for the Catholic Women’s League, making meals for the men out working the farm and preparing the meal’s for not only her children and husband but as well for the boarders and extended family who would come to stay.  She was renowned for her hot cross buns, cinnamon buns and Christmas cut-out cookies which her grand-children loved.  Once her children were grown, she spent many weeks preparing pails of Christmas cut-out cookies that she would send home to each family for the grandkids.

Sheila spent her last few years at the Sunshine home where she very much enjoyed the relationship she built with the caring staff.  Sheila loved and missed her husband Lloyd dearly and will be happy to now rejoin with him. 

Sheila leaves to morn her daughters - Linda (Mike) Covey, Debbie (Fran) Dierker, Velda (Laurie) Pedrotti; sons - David (Val) Pickett, Mark (Donna) Pickett, Larry (Cindy) Pickett, Patrick (Shelley) Pickett; 16 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren.

Sheila was predeceased by her loving husband Lloyd in 2002; brothers - James Keogan, David Keogan; sisters - Mary (Blocha), Pat (Jansen)
