Meet Wilma

Social and cheerful, Wilma and her husband George take part in many of Sherbrooke's activities.

Her Story


Wilma Heisler grew up in Wilke, Sask. When she married George 46 years ago, she moved to Unity, Sask., and then to Saskatoon in 1974. Before she retired, she worked as a baker’s assistant, and at the Bank of commerce. George retired eight years ago from his career as a press operator for various newspapers around the province. She and George have one son, Duane, and one grandson named Liam, who is an active two year old. Wilma has lived with MS for 39 years.

Wilma came to live at Sherbrooke in 2007. George comes every day to see her, and they love to walk all over Sherbrooke together. As a result, they know everyone, and they know everything that’s going on with the people in the community. They take part in many activities, including one of Wilma’s favourites, wine club. Wilma always has a smile for everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from.

Welcome to Sherbrooke Community Centre

Ours is a community of people with normal aspirations, dreams and a desire to live life to the fullest.

Saskatoon’s Sherbrooke Community Centre is a warm and welcoming place: there are 263 Residents, 100 Community Day Program Participants, 500 volunteers, families, friends, students, pets, and over 500 staff. Like any small town, ours is a community of people with aspirations, dreams, and a desire to live life to the fullest. At Sherbrooke, Residents work, play, shop, worship, paint, garden, sing, dance, and volunteer. We have many stories to share about our lives, so feel free to stop by for a visit and meet some of the people who call Sherbrooke home. And don’t be surprised if Murphy or Calamity Jane, a couple of the working dogs, tries to wrangle a treat!
