The Estaire Wanup Fire Service wishes to acknowledge the grievous loss of our former member, Sheri-Lynn McEwan. Always active in the community, Sheri-Lynn stepped down last year from the fire service to pursue other interests, and to support her husband, Deputy Fire Chief Terry Boyle.
At their request, the fire services remains committed to supporting the family through this ordeal. Collectively we have been struggling to adjust to this horrific event.
Members of the fire service were amongst those responding to the call last Monday. With the support of our community partners, we are ensuring that essential emergency response capability remains.
Sheri-Lynn was a captivating person who always had a smile on her face. During her service time with our group, Sheri-Lynn approached the duties of a firefighter with professionalism and brought medical skills that made her a valued member of our team. She will be truly missed.
Our department also wishes to acknowledge the generous support of the Greater Sudbury Roller Derby, who yesterday announced the sale of memorial buttons honouring Sheri-Lynn. For more information, please contact the league through their Facebook page.
The ongoing public support this past week is a testament to the good of our communities, and we are truly appreciative. A sincere thank you to the support of the office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, the Greater Sudbury Fire Service, members are VCARS and the communities of Wanup and Estaire for the outpouring of support to our department and the family and friends of Terry.
Please continue to support the ongoing efforts of the Ontario Provincial Police in this investigation, and if you have any information that might help, please contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
