Our thoughts are with Sheena's family. My first meeting was in 1949 as a 12 year old I attended my first Girl Guide Camp at Centre Bush and Sheena was in charge. It was a great experience as she put so much effort and fun into the week. Since then we have met on many occasions and we both have many memories of knowing this lovely friendly woman for many years.
