    I am sorry to hear of Dr Guest’s death. Sheena was my physician in the 70’s and 80’s, delivering my two children with great calm and skill. It was hard to find another doctor with Sheena’s comfortable manner and her practice of listening well to her patients. She is missed.

    Sincerest condolences to the family on the death of Dr. Sheena. She was our family doctor in Winnipeg for many years and delivered my 2nd daughter at Grace Hospital. She was easy to talk to and provided excellent care to me and other members of our family. She was a wonderful woman and like so many others in Winnipeg I feel blessed in having known her. RIP Sheena, you will not be forgotten.

    Goodbye Dr. Sheena. My Dr. for a number of years in Winnipeg. I still compare my Drs since then to you and your high standards. Condolences to your family.

    I remember her outstanding devotions to her patients. She delivered my first baby (a forceps delivery) at midnight at the Grace Hospital in Winnipeg in 1971 and my second baby in 1975 at 3 in the morning.

    I met Sheena & Howard at a neighbourhood party just after their arrival from Winnipeg. We became friends. She joined The Canadian Club of Victoria, eventually becoming president. And then we were past presidents together! We became friends–wined & dined & laughed together–just we two or with our husbands. I will miss my joyful friend. God Speed Sheena, Love, Tricia
