SHERIDAN;  Althea “Al” Joyce ~ Peacefully at the Ross Memorial Hospital with her family by her side on Thursday, November 26, 2020 at the age of 81.  Althea Sheridan (nee Ball) was the beloved wife of the late Andrew “Grant” Sheridan and the late Eldon Arsenault.  Loving mother of Wayne (Linda), Diana Sheridan, Heather Sheridan, Layne (Laura), Timothy, Kimberly Rose, Tamara Schendera (Ted) and the late Lonnie (the late Sharon and survived by Dee), and the late Richard.  Lovingly remembered by 20 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.  Dear sister of Rolland Ball (Melanie) and the late Orland Ball (survived by Hilda), and Brenda Walker (the late Ron and survived by Dave).  Al will be remembered by her many nieces, nephews and friends.  She leaves her family and friends with many fond memories of her resilience, strength and selflessness.  Her love of animals and others through her volunteering was a testament to her kindness.  The memory of her tireless cooking for family and friends, her pickles, canning, meals, and pies, will always be cherished.  Al will be deeply missed by her furry best friend Piper, and by all who knew her.

Your mother's life is one that deserves celebration! I only met Althea once or twice when visiting Tim in Lindsay and wish that there had been more opportunities. I know from Tim what an amazing woman she was. We have some of her excellent preserves on our kitchen counter now and will cherish and enjoy each one! Warm condolences from our family to yours.

Tim & Family, I will forever remember the special memories I have of your Mother. I can picture her with your Father as I type this. She was so shy and yet sent a strong message of kindness to those she knew. Her smile coupled with the warmth that was portrayed in her eyes gave us all a sense of contentment. Heaven was blessed with this wonderful lady and I just know she will be watching over all of you still. Rest In Peace Althea, and God Bless all of your family.

I have very fond memories of Althea when she and Grant used to play dances of my husband, Ted. Ted passed on 3 years ago. The three of them are probably having a great time in Heaven about now. Bless you all.

I was sadened to read of the passing of Althea, whom I have known for 60 years. I got to know her through her business while I was on the police force. I offer my condolences to all members of her family. L. Gary Byrne


Althea kept in touch with mom, Elsie after Eldon had passed away. Mom enjoyed having her call her. We loved seeing and talking to her at the family reunion. Could she ever cook. Got some recipes from her at the family reunion at her El's place. Sending you our deep condolences to her family. What a picture of her.

Such a huge void in our lives without Althea! She was the glue that got the family together, loving the preparation , cooking, baking, making endless salads and yummy treats. How we will cherish every coffee this summer at the lake! Gone too soon, left hurting hearts behind. Love you sis. Love and hugs to the rest of the family. Uncle Rol & Melanie
