Sheila Jean Glowa

September 19, 1948 – August 06, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Sheila Jean Glowa, on Thursday, August 06 2020.

Sheila’s passion in life was her family, and she leaves to mourn her passing daughter, Kimberly (Jamie) Bartek; grandson, Austyn Bartek; father, William Krysko along with her brother Robert Krysko and sister Charlene Erickson.

Sheila will also be lovingly remembered by many special nieces and nephews and their families.

Sheila was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband William Glowa; mother, Myrtle Krysko and sister, Lenora Lynn.

She shared a precious bond with her daughter Kimberly, and they both shared a love for the poem "Footprints":

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."

He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."


In honour of Sheila’s wishes, no service will be held.
