To Sheila's Children,
Your Mom was a very Special Person.
I worked with her at North River Medical many years ago. We had many nights of fun and laughs. She was a very good friend to me and I am so sorry to learn of her passing. I will always keep her in my Thoughts and Prayers as will my Daughter who is also very sorry for your loss. I can honestly say Sheila was one of a kind.
She loved her Family and was proud of each of you. Our Prayers will be with you.

Stephen, Michelle and Mark~ I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have fond memories of all of us kids in the pond while she, my mom, Mrs. Ringer and other moms played cribbage near the shade tree at Maple Park. She was such a great woman, always made me laugh with her quick come-backs! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
