Nancy, you may not remember myself and my son Trevor. You and your mom helped Trevor so much with 4-h and we had activities at your home. Thank you and you wonderful momma for all you did. Trevor graduated with a masters degree from college and I know it was God and him putting people like your mom and you into our lives. We are praying for your family. We will see her again one day. With love Yvonne and Trevor

Shelia was such a gentle soul. She took care of all 3 of my children ages 24, 18, & 13 yrs old as their school nurse. Two of my children are special needs and Shelia was such a big part of their school days. Shelia administered daily meds to them and she also the gave the love and tenderness like a grandparent would give their own child. Shelia will be definitely missed by her many students and also their parents.
Shelia also graduated school with my parents and my in laws. She was a piece of my families everyday and just not only on a school day, she was there any day that you needed her.❤❤
Until we are reunited again on the other side.❤❤

To Hannah, Nancy, & all the family. When Sheila ran the Maplewood school clinic I could always go to her for anything, advise, a kindred spirit, a shoulder or a laugh. She always thought of her kids, grandchildren, friends and others first. Oh how she loved her family....and Mickey/Minnie mouse 😉. To say that I will miss her is so far from what I feel. She is a very special lady and our loss is heavens gain. I'm sure Larry was waiting for her just beyond Jordan. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you and comfort you. My sympathies and condolences.

Sheila is another of God's angels who flew too close to the earth. She touched many lives with her warm smile and gentle heart.
She will always be my deputy sister #5 in our Fields of Faith Grand Family, Oder of the Eastern Star,
who loved Mickey Mouse and me. My prayers go out to Hanna and her family as they face this hour of trial.
