She was the loving mother of David Alan Schefter, his wife Leasha, and her daughter Kris Schefter. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren: Amanda Gaffney (Marianne), Morgan Gaffney (Aman), Maegan Schefter, and Molly Schefter (Dylan).
Sharleen had a group of lifelong friends who affectionately called themselves the “Snitch & Bitch” club. Their friendship brought her joy, love, and adventure throughout her life. She was a commissioner, Girl Guide and Brownie leader in the Girl Guides of Canada, and influenced many young girls in Meaford over decades. She was an active member of the Trefoil Guild and was an honorary life member of Girl Guides of Canada. She volunteered at the Anglican Church organizing luncheons, giving tours of the stained-glass windows, and was an active member of the Anglican Church Women group. She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
