Sheila Synowicki, 90, of Lodi passed away on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.
She was born to Madeline and Luke Walsh on November 26, 1926 in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
As a teenager in Newfoundland, Sheila had great memories of dancing at the Newfoundland USO during World War II. After moving to Toronto, Sheila was swept off her feet on the dance floor by Walter, the love of her life, and they continued to dance together every night of the week. They married in 1949 and resided in Toronto where they soon began their family. In 1958, Walter, Sheila and their 3 children, Susan, Donna and Bob moved to Lodi, where their fourth child, Brian was born.
Sheila loved music, dancing, and playing bridge with her friends. She was a loving mother and grandmother and will be dearly missed.
Sheila was greatly loved and is survived by her children Susan (Douglas) Schnaidt, Bob (Corina) Synowicki, Brian (Laurie) Synowicki; her grandchildren Lindsay Schnaidt, John Schnaidt, Jennifer (Henry) Weaver, Brooke (Vani) Yepez, Melissa (Jason) Ezell, Kristen Synowicki, Erica (Trevor) Phillips, Alec Synowicki; and her 11 great-grandchildren.
Sheila is preceded in death by her husband Walter, her daughter Donna, her sisters Betty, Maureen, and Helen, and her brother Derm. She is survived by her brother Brian.
Services will be held on Thursday, May 4, at 10:00 a.m. at Donahue Funeral Home.
