We extend our condolences to Jenn Wiens and her family on the passing away of her mother, Sheila Tarpley, on Monday morning (June 11, 2018). We will miss Sheila’s gentle smile in her favourite seat in the third row, where she faithfully sat each Sunday until her health suffered.

May God’s presence be of comfort to Jenn and Terry and their children, Katie, Emylea and Griffin.
