Sheila was a kind, loving and giving person who devoted her life to raising her four children. Twenty years after her youngest graduated from high school she would still make sure she was home by 3:00 PM to greet the school bus. Sheila enjoyed golfing, going to lunch with her sisters, vacationing with family and friends and of course shopping. Sheila's support of the local economy will be greatly missed. Most important to Sheila was the love she had for her family, especially her adored grandchildren. Her world revolved around spending time with them and attending their activities. Mimi's house was always the gathering place for Sunday dinners, Giant games, birthday parties, holidays and special occasions for family and friends. Mom, we will always love you with all our hearts. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Lourdes Hospital. Special thanks to Toby in ER, Michelle and Lisa from Ross 1. Our deepest appreciation to Dani in ICU, she adored you. The family will receive friends on Sunday, 4:00 PM-7:00 PM at Barber Memorial Home, Inc. 428 Main Street Johnson City. Funeral Services will be held Monday at 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, Vestal. Burial will follow the funeral mass at Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Sheila's memory to Mom's House ( or The Danielle House (
