Sheila Marie McLeod (nee Mumford), 82 of Clementsvale, slipped gently into her wings on November 17, 2020 in the Soldier’s Memorial Hospital, Middleton. Born in Halifax, on August 9, 1938, Sheila was the daughter of the late Ernest Mumford and Eileen Mumford-Collins.
Sheila was a devoted naval wife and is survived and deeply loved by her husband of 64 years, Robert (Bob) McLeod Sr.; and their four children Robert (Bob) McLeod Jr, Morganville; Kelly Mayotte (Myles), Clementsvale; Tracy Carey (Pat), Quispamsis, NB; and Jodi McLeod, NB. Sheila is also survived by her youngest sister Valerie Mumford, Middle Sackville; and many nieces and nephews. Sheila was an adoring grandmother to her grandchildren Adam, Kyle, Anthony, Zachary, Sarah, Robert, Brandi and five great-grandchildren.
Although we sadly mourn her, we celebrate the life she lived and the time we had with her. We will miss you and love you forever, Mom.
Besides her parents, Sheila was also predeceased by her beloved sister Jean (Mumford) Payne, brother Donald Mumford, brother-in-law Gerry Payne and sister-in-law Tracey Mumford.
Sheila lived her life full of determination, strength and love of family. She was well known for her loyalty, sense of humour and lively wit.
Sheila started her career at the Dockyards in Halifax, retiring in 1992 from her position at the Personnel Office, at former CFB Cornwallis.
