Chers Érik, Kalina et Lara, je me joins à vous dans cette grande douleur. Votre relation exceptionnelle et le soin que vous portiez l'un à l'autre me laissent imaginer que le vide créé par le départ soudain et paisible de Sheila donne un vertige immense. Puisse l'hommage que je lui rend ci-bas servir de beaume éphémère sur votre vive blessure. Sheila était une grande dame. Une inspiration. Chacun de mes contacts avec elle en grandissant m'a permis de voir à travers son accueil chaleureux, sa générosité et sa force, une fenêtre nouvelle sur le monde. J'admirais sa vision acérée et pleine d'humour mais surtout cette énergie déployée pour faire la différence. J'admirerai toujours le sens sacré qu'elle donna à la famille et je suis reconnaissant qu'elle m'ait considérée ainsi. Sheila m'a appris le mot "gorgeous" avec la sincérité d'un compliment ancré à jamais dans ma mémoire d'adolescente complexée. Sheila s'est dévouée pour m'aider à trouver du travail lorsque j'étais désillusionné à mon retour d'Israël. Heureusement que ces souvenirs et bien d'autres nous permettrons de continuer de lui rendre hommage.

Erik, as you know your mom played a very important role in my life when I was a young teenager. In many ways she was like a mom to me in those days. We spoke a few months back and I will always remember what a wise and wonderful lady she was, how she always offered smart advice. God Bless, Mark

Dear Erik and Kalina, My heart aches at the news of the passing of your dear mother and mother-in-law, and of my dear friend, teacher, and mentor. Sheila was truly an inspiration for me both personally and professionally. She guided me with her wisdom, taught me with her brilliance, and supported me with her generous and endless love. Her keen knowledge and appreciation of the arts and of jazz showed me the the fine and brilliant complexities of the world and how to appreciate and delight in them. Her laugh was contagious, and her determination and perseverance toward excellence was inspirational. She beamed when she spoke of you and I’m thrilled that she got to meet Lara. I have always, and will continue to hold a special place in my heart for Sheila. I loved her dearly. May you be comforted in the many special memories you hold of her. I know I will. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Lawrence and Nicole Patenaude - 8 days ago

Sheila was a vocal student of mine who I met weekly on Tuesdays for three years to help her with her breathing and singing ability. The irony was that she became a mother figure to me and my wife with her great advice and confidence boosts as she shared her wisdom. My wife and myself became good friends with her and attended several concerts and events together. She was a sharp and witty warm heart, a great listener. and an intuitive soul. She was always so happy and grateful to see us. Our heart felt condolences go out to Erik, Kalena, and the family. Sheila's light will shine on us all. She will be dearly missed. You are in our prayers.

Sheila My dear friend- an art lover a voracious reader curious and interested in the world around her and in people All kinds of people no matter the language, the colour, the age. My friend Sheila was a significant, cherished person in my life - and a mentor I know I could turn to her when I had difficult questions Though we lived in different continents for the better part of three decades, Her mere presence in this world was reassuring and her love unchanged, loyal, and deeply interested in my happiness and well being - and that of my family. I also owe Sheila my graduate degree in philosophy. Knowing how exhausted I was during the last days of my thesis, Sheila - in her exuberant and inimitable manner jumped onto a greyhound bus and landed on the doorstep of my small apartment in downtown Ottawa ready to save the day - and me. Over the next few days, Sheila saw me through the excruciating gymnastics of philosophical argumentation. But all I can remember is the laughter - and her company. To make the task easier we made up hilarious nicknames for the philosophers whose positions we were trying to unravel. Now as I try to recall our favourite nickname, I realise that Sheila would surely be able to remember it. But I know that one night, as I dream once again that I have missed my thesis deadline, I will recall our favourite nickname and I will laugh ! And I will recall also how much joy and love and wisdom your friendship brought me, my family, and those whose lives you changed for the better, including those you helped through your work -never aiming for less than excellence, and a deep life affirming clarity. You are alive in my heart, and imprinted in my life. Rosa da Costa Tel Aviv November 09, 2017

Arlene Lutter Hoppenheim - 9 days ago

Dearest Erik, I am profoundly saddened to hear of your Mom’s death. It has been a while she and I last talked or met each other and knowing of her declining health over these last years I feared it was not a good sign . Your Mom and I were colleagues and friends over many years . Sheila was a strong, capable, woman with a keen intellect, engaging spirit, warm heart and had great humour . I treasured our time together. We talked of our professional lives and our personal ones . She was always genuinely interested in my children’s lives - their triumphs and disappointments . Over time Sheila and my husband , Howard, developed a friendship which I know he too, valued . Together they attended an Art auction when he saw first hand Sheila’s savy, her knowledge and wit . Through our long association the one theme that ran through and above all others was her deep love and devotion of her son . Erik, you meant the world to her and I can only imagine how deeply you will miss her I shall miss my dear friend . Arlene Lutter Hoppenheim
