I am sorry this world has lost such a wonderful, caring and loyal person. I feel blessed to have had Shelia for so many years as one of my best friends. Not a day has gone by since her passing that I have not thought about her and wished I could have one more of our special visits. She was truly proud of her sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren and loved each and every one with all her heart. Heaven has gained a true angel!

Words can not express the sorrow I feel. Sheila has blessed my life with her unwavering love, support and friendship. We have faced many difficult challenges together and seen each other through. She is more than a friend, she is my sister. She was so proud of her sons and their lovely wives who she considered daughters. She always bragged about her grandchildren and I could always hear in her voice the love she felt for them. She is the godmother of my children and loved them deeply. It is going to be so hard to live in this world without her. I love you dearly Sheila!

Sheila and I became good friends in Jr High. We went through high school and college together. We were in each other's weddings. Before we married we took a girls trip to Atlanta and New Orleans and had incredible adventures and fun. We fell apart after she moved to NC but in the last couple years we found each other and began communicating through text and phone. I have wonderful memories of Sheila. I will miss her!

With Love,

Sheila Sparger was the most kind and thoughtful person and to be around her was a joy. We worked together for many years and laughed, partied and had fun. We take life and health for granted so much of the time and don’t take the time we should with family and friends. My condolences are with her family, friends and especially Thomas Fancher her dear dear friend.

My heart is saddened to hear of Sheila's passing. She was a fighter up to her last day. I'll miss running into her at the grocery store and other places. She was always so upbeat and smiling in spite of her pain. Sheila and I go way back to our days together at Coldwell Banker in the mid 80's. Praying for the family during this difficult time.
