Sheila Ann Denyer, a resident of Delray Beach, FL, passed away on December 12, 2023, at the age of 68. Born on May 20, 1955, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Sheila touched the lives of those around her with her unwavering strength, resilience, and love.
Sheila was the beloved wife of Gary Denyer, and a devoted mother to her sons, Scott and Paul Busby, from her first marriage. She was the daughter of the late Nicholas McAuley (2011) and Sheila Graham, and a loving sister to Angela McAuley.
Sheila was not only a dedicated mother and wife but also a talented artist and oil painter. Her creativity knew no bounds, and her works will be cherished as a testament to her artistic spirit.
She faced life with a "never give up" philosophy, a mantra exemplified by her courageous battle against cancer for over five years. Sheila's resilience was not only evident in her personal life but also in her professional journey. Despite not having a high school diploma in Scotland, she climbed the ranks to upper engineering management. In the United States, she introduced innovative workflows to construction management and played a pivotal role in the government certification of medical software at Keiser Computers, Inc.
Known for her straightforward nature, Sheila was a "straight-shooter" who always spoke her mind. Her commitment to any endeavor she undertook was unparalleled, always giving 100% of herself. She was selfless in her obligations to family, a pillar of strength for those who knew her.
Sheila's compassion extended beyond people; she had a deep love for cats and rescued a total of 10 during her lifetime.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Cancer Society in Sheila's honor. Contributions can be made at https://donate.cancer.org/.
Sheila Ann Denyer will be dearly missed, but her legacy of strength, determination, and love will live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. May she rest in eternal peace.
A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday, December 22nd, 2023, at 2 pm EST at Gary Panoch Funeral Home, 6140 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, FL 33487.
