On Monday, July 19, 2021, Sheila Baer, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 66.

Sheila was born in 1955 in New Haven, CT, to Lt. Colonel Arthur and Margaret McCabe. In 1997 she married James Baer. After graduating with her Doctor of Philosophy from Marquette University she devoted herself to supporting our country's Veterans in her practice as a Clinical Psychologist for the Veteran's Administration, and as a much-respected member of the Illinois State Board of Psychology.

Sheila was known for her sense of humor. Those who knew her also know that tradition was everything to Sheila. She loved to read, spent hours designing and caring for her perfect English Cottage Garden, was fiercely proud of her Irish heritage, and invested countless hours researching and recording her family's history. Sheila held a special fondness for all things "Cape Cod", and found great comfort being near the water.

Sheila is survived by her husband Jim, daughter Tracey and son Shane, grandsons Tommy and William, and sister Kathy.

Visitation will be held on Saturday July 31 from 11am to 1pm at Marsh Funeral Home 305 N. Cemetery Rd, Gurnee, IL 60031.
