Shelda Fowler and School Closure

Dear CWAA Families,

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we inform our school community of the passing of Mrs. Shelda Fowler (PE Teacher Rick Fowler’s wife) on Friday January 19, 2018 after an 8-month battle with cancer.

As a school and church family we offer our full support and prayers for the entire Fowler family as they go through the process of grieving. Shelda’s passing is a tremendous loss to the CWAA family and we will greatly miss her laughter, her love, and her friendship. Her determination to live and persevere through the trials of illness is a testament to her love for her family and for her God. We are comforted by the fact that she is no longer in pain and is awaiting the day where she can be reunited with her loved ones at the second coming of Jesus.

In order for all CWAA staff and families to be able to celebrate Shelda’s life and mourn her passing, Chinook Winds Adventist Academy will be closed on Monday, January 22, 2018 for her memorial service.

If anyone would like to pay their respects and offer support for the Fowler family, the memorial service will be held at 1:00pm on Monday, January 22, 2018 at the Calgary Central Seventh-Day Adventist Church (1920 13 Ave NW).

We know that in any difficult trials we encounter, we are comforted by the love of Jesus Christ and the promises of the Bible. We ask for your continued prayers for the Fowler family and CWAA.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” –
Revelation 21:4


In Him,
