I was so sorry to see Sheilas obituary in the paper. I always enjoyed visiting with her as she transported patients to the hospital from the nursing home. She always had a smile and a kind word. May your many memories give you comfort. Rest in piece, Sheila.

To Michelle, Travis, and Troy, We were so sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was such a sincere and kind person. I so enjoyed my time working with her at Head Start. It was obvious that she had a deep love for children and they, in turn, loved her. Our thoughts and prayers are with your families. Sincerest sympathy, Joel and Peggy Olson

Sheila's Family, I am shocked and saddened to see the passing of Sheila. Sheila was a worker and a hard worker-she always wore a smile through her busy life, her hard work and her time (too short) here on earth. May you all share stories/memories that warm your hearts, bring smiles through the tears and comfort to all of you. Our deepest sympathy to all of you and may GOD give you strength and courage to face the days ahead. Don & Michelle (Hardy) Murray

Sorry for the loss of this wonderful soul. Shelia was always such a hard worker and kind person. I worked with her years ago at Wedgewood Manor as a CNA. Later I was a home care nurse when she cared for her mother. Such devotion to care for someone 24 hours a day. I remember her gardening skills and the way her face lit up when talking about her children and grandchildren. Will miss her and privileged to know such a caring person. Rest In Peace Shelia.
