Sheila came into the lives of many, across the years that she roamed this earthly plane; and she never could help but to capture the intrigue of everyone she met.
She was a Godsend to us, when we were looking for a caring and reliable babysitter.
Well, she fit that bill, and much more. She was so good with our kids, and even taught them how to handle the neighborhood kids. And, if our kids couldn’t do it, she certainly could. Never a hesitation to take the reins, was she!
I feel very sad to look at this site and see that there is no obituary, and no condolences from the kids (knowing it’s a family thing, and the condolences are supposed to come from outside);
I just am sad that the element of her is not recognized as it should be; she was a fabulous person to know, fun to be around, and always a wonder of what she might do next.
At bare bottom, she was a biker chick; she loved being that, and loved rock and roll and everything that came with it.
She really loved love, and living and she did it to the hilt.
I don't know if she ever got back all the love that she poured on people, but she sure did dish it out.
Sheila was the new girl in the neighborhood 51 years ago and we have been friends since then. She was one of a kind and to know her was to love her. She was one of those friends that even when life got in the way or we were miles apart we could pick right back up when we got a chance to talk or be together. I am so thankful to have had her in my life all these years and life will never be the same.
To her kids and grandkids, she loved you all so much. She was so proud of each and everyone of you and so thankful that you were around when she was so sick. She wanted nothing more than for you to be happy. My heart aches as do yours but I will cherish the memories I have of her and pictures from many, many years ago.
Till we meet again Sheila. I love you and will miss you!
My heart is filled with the best of memories of my Aunt Sheila. I spent days upon days at 'our post' laughing until we couldn't laugh any longer. I will forever cherish my summer days and as the great Bob Seger sang....and the secrets that we shared, the mountains that we moved, caught like a wildfire out of control til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove......Against the wind, running against the wind.
To Tom, Val, Scott and Jackie - she was one in a million and though she will most certainly be missed I hope knowing how much she loved you and your families bring you comfort and love in these tough days ahead.
