Sheila Boswell, aged 56, resident of Mission Viejo California, passed away peacefully on Monday October 17th 2016 after a 4 1/2 year long courageous battle with cancer. Born in Hereford UK on Feb 28th 1960 she is survived by her husband of 33 years Andrew and her two sons James and Alex.

Sheila loved life and was loved by all those who came to know her, she was a joy and light to so many people. Children and gardening were her main focus from the beginning of her many years of service to others, as a carer and a pre-school assistant teacher. When she received her cancer diagnosis in 2012 she became a member of the American Cancer Society and Co-Chair of the Relay for Life movement. She was a Hero for Hope speaker and devoted much of her time to helping others cope with a cancer diagnosis. Despite her own difficult condition she remained positive and filled with joy and love, as one dear friend stated she made pain look beautiful and found peace among the chaos.

A celebration of life will be held at InSpirit Center for Spiritual living, 25782 Obrero Dr. Unit D
Mission Viejo CA 92691, at 11:00am on Sat 10/29.

  1. Andrew, Alex and James, You have our heartfelt sympathy on Sheila’s passing. They say actions speak louder than words, and your actions of love for Sheila these past years and recent months have spoken volumes of your love for her. Andrew, your love for Sheila was very special and rare, something you don’t find very often these days. Alex you should be very proud of how you cared for your Mum these past months. This was no easy task and it takes a very special person to tend to your mother the way you did. James what a blessing to have been able to see your Mum before her departure to heaven. Although I am sure your love makes your loss even more painful, I believe that your love for her and your fond memories will eventually bring you comfort. Please know that we are holding you all in our hearts and praying for peace and comfort for all of you. Love Danny & Colleen

    In Memory of Sheila:
    When I think of you, I think of light, laughter and the beautiful love and spark that you share with your family and friends. Your home was full of love and laughter. You were such a spark of joy, wit, love, and appreciation for life. Your love for gardening, and creating a home of love for your family was so beautiful.
    Thank you for birthing and raising one of my very best, life-long friends, James. James and Alex are so blessed to have such a beautiful, loving Mum, and I am so very glad for the time that Lauren had with you as her future Mum -in law.

    I know you will be with them for the celebrations and joy in life, through the tears, and shining over and blessing their love throughout their long life together. They will have you watching over them, and one day, you will be Angel Grandmum to their children. Those grandbabies will sure have a wonderful Angel looking out for them, shining love on them so beautifully, forever
    I know so strongly in my heart that you are now a shining, vast, ray of sunshine and love WITH your family and friends, now and always.
    With love,

  3. We have so many fond memories of you all in our lives. Sheila, we had lots of fun and laughter together, along with your love for Siân and Tom. You are such a strong, positive inspiration to us all. Continue your work alongside our Lord. Much love to Andrew James and Alex xxx

  5. Sheila, you touched the hearts of everyone you knew. You were a caring, loving, and awesome friend. When you walked into a room you would light it up. I can remember yours and Andrew’s fantastic Christmas parties, we all had so much fun. Looking back I can see we did so much together. When we were gym buddies I honestly think we used to talk and laugh more than exercise. Also, I love the fact that people would often mistake us for sisters. In reality you were the sister I never had. You made my time in California so special, I am so grateful we could continue our friendship when we moved away. Even though the distance sometimes got the better of us, we both knew that we were always there for each other. I will cherish our memories together forever.

    Andrew, James and Alex, we cannot begin to imagine what you are going through right now. We hope you find some comfort in that she was loved by so many people. The memories we have must be nothing compared to the loving memories you have as a family.

    Remember that we care about you and love you. You are in our hearts, not just in this sad time but always.
