Sheila Dawn Lang
December 13, 1965 – May 22, 2021
Sheila Dawn Lang, was an outstanding and remarkable human being during her time on earth, mother, grandmother, sister, mentor and friend. She left this world on May 22, 2021 at age 55 and leaves the following here to celebrate her life: her mother, Janet Marleen Anderson, Brother, Robert Anderson, son, Joshua Julian Montoya, daughters, Melissa Dawn Lang and Brittany Dawn Lang; grandchildren, Adrian, Ezekiel, and Vincent and a host of beloved friends
Sheila was born to Janet Marleen Anderson on December 13, 1965. After graduating from high school, Sheila worked for King Soopers in the Bakery making amazing cakes, She then worked for DR Horton being the most meticulous and successful employee. Nobody could do it like Sheila could. Sheila followed the dawn and the dusk with her love of traveling, her favorite place to travel was Roatan. Sheila was grounded in all the ways you could imagine which also led her to serve in the HawkQuest community, diving and photography. Sheila also had a passionate love affair with candy…boxes of it…everywhere.
Sheila loved spending time with her horses, creating delicious meals for her family (Sheila Tacos), laughing and listening to DAMN GOOD music!
Sheila was a comedian + life coach and didn’t even know it. To know her was to love her, learn from her and do life with her. Nurses loved Sheila for her humor and incredible wisdom and often joked that Sheila should go around the hospitals and do “SheilaTalks” instead of “TedTalks.”
We thought it would look different but we know that Sheila, however she exists at this current moment, is in her OASIS….”HiShe's Haven".
Sheila can never escape the meaning of her name, she will always rise and she will always shine. Some say (Matchbox 20 to be exact) that “She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to” but with the world having the gift that Sheila was, the moon hangs much higher tonight.
A Memorial Service for Sheila will be held on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 2pm at Olinger Chapel Hill Mortuary, followed by a reception with family and friends.

Sorry to miss the celebration of Sheila’s life yesterday - she definitely lived one of faith, family and friends!!! She was a photographer when I met her and I recommended her for a job selling homes. We’ve been friends every since as she was a dedicated professional and she cared so much for her buyers. We went to church after work on Saturdays so it was special to share our work and faith lives. I was so pleased when I heard Ken brought his birds to the service as she cherished her volunteer memories with Hawk Quest!!! Most important was her family and she loved showing pictures of her grandchildren❤️ Knowing she is finally pain free and peace with the Lord hopefully provides comfort to all of us who were honored to to Sheila!!

You were my little sister and one of my best friends since you were three. We cried together and e we laughed allot as we were growing up. I watched you overcome your battles with no fear ever showing and I always admired you for that cause you never seemed discouraged about anything. You were my hero and you always came out on top. I always wanted to be like you we got away from each other as we raised our family’s but not a day went by that I didn’t think of you. I will miss you so very much. I love you sheesh forever and ever. Please stay safe till I get there. I will always miss your words of advice

Everyday with Sheila was an adventure. Whether taking our first ski lesson together at Cooper Mountain, driving to Estes Park to shop for that one of a kind Christmas ornament or simply loading a flatbed with hay for her horses it was unique and very personal. I will miss our dinner dates at PF Changs for lettuce wraps. Thank you for helping me better understand the meaning of spirituality and mindfulness. Go soar with the eagles, the red tail hawks and the owls. You are free from all pain and suffering and I do find solace in that. You were a true warrior and my life was made better by having you in it. I know that your children are hurting right now but it will be fantastic when you meet them again. I love you!

My dear friend. You worked so hard that last week to overcome once again and I prayed so hard that you would so I wouldn’t have to lose you . But God in his infinite wisdom and empathy thought it best to say you fought a valiant fight but it’s time for you to rest and be free from pain and struggling. And as selfish as I want to be by saying He took you too soon I know He was right. Rest well my friend. I love you and will miss you dearly, and it will be hard to face another day without you in my world. But I know you’re no longer struggling and are pain free now and I couldn’t ask for better for a friend who’s been in my life since she was five years old. Peace be with you Sheila. As you always were I know you’ll be there to help me when it’s my time to come home.
My deepest condolences to Sheila’s family.
