INNALOO resident Sheila Hogan came out of “retirement” to volunteer for the Cancer Council WA one last time last week, before the 94-year-old sadly passed away.

Ms Hogan volunteered for the Cancer Council for 29 years and once again raised funds by selling Daffodil Day pins and flowers at Gwelup Shopping Centre on August 26.

She passed away that evening from a heart attack.

A breast cancer survivor, during the 1980s Ms Hogan volunteered to make wigs and fringes for women undergoing chemotherapy in hospital.

Her family described her as a “hero” and “incredibly strong independent woman”.
