Sheila was a second mother to me growing up. I remember many trips to the CJC swimming pool during the summer, cub scouts, picnics at lake Logan and multiple family vacations together. I especially enjoyed catching up with her at LeAnn & David's wedding last October. My wife, daughter, son & I wish to extend our deepest condolences to David, Stephanie and your families.

I had the pleasure to work with Sheila at the Conservatory. Seeing her was always the highlight of my day. Receiving a smile from Sheila was like basking in sunshine. She made people feel that good. She will be missed by many. Heartfelt condolences to her family.

To Sheila Family: Mom and I met Sheila when she was married to Dave Jones thru our church. My Mother & Father were friends with Don & his first wife back in the 1940's. I am so sorry for your loss.
