Sheila Steadman

Sheila sadly passed away on the 27th October 2020. She was a much-loved Mother, wonderful Grandmother, and friend to many. She will be fondly remembered and sadly missed.


Sheila's story

Sheila had a life-long love affair with Wire Fox Terriers. Her parents always kept one as a pet and, being an only child, it was her constant companion. When she met her husband, Ron, they also became interested in showing them. Ron and Sheila bought two wires and off they went to Birmingham National Dog Show where they were fortunate enough to be introduced to the one-and-only Bob Barlow of the world-famous Crackley Wires. Sheila put her heart and soul into preparing and handling her dogs and enjoyed considerable success. Sheila remained very much into her dogs throughout her life– once a terrier person, always a terrier person! - and served on the committee’s of the The Wire Fox Terrier Association (and was elected President in 2003), The Fox Terrier Club and Birmingham and District Fox Terrier Club, even when she was no longer able to attend shows. She made many friends over the years through this community and loved keeping up to date with all the results and happenings in the Fox Terrier world. Sheila was also extremely creative and multi-talented; an accomplished artist and dressmaker, as well as being exceptionally skilled at cooking, baking and cake decorating. She also dedicated a lot of time to giving back and was an active volunteer for 'Meals on Wheels' for a number of years, delivering meals to individuals at home who are unable to purchase or prepare their own meals. The air ambulance was a charity that meant a lot to Sheila and rather than send flowers in her memory, should you wish to commemorate her life in some way, we kindly request donations to the air ambulance on her behalf.
