Mrs. Sheeley was my favorite teacher of all time! She inspired me in a time of my life when I desperately needed someone. Not only was she a wonderful teacher but a great friend to all of her students. I always think of her with with a smile.

Mrs. Sheeley was a wonderful teacher and an amazing person! Her classes were so much more than educational, they were FUN! Thanks to her, I was blessed to travel to France in 1982, something I will never forget. Sure, I have many memories from that trip, but the most important memories are of all the ways she went out of her way to help me earn the money to pay for the trip. The life lessons I learned from that experience were worth so much more than I realized at the time.

I will never forget her kindness and pray that her loved ones are able to find comfort & peace during this difficult time

Mrs. Shelley
When I was a senior, I would bring you a pie from McDonalds every day because you were pregnant with Brian. I loved the talks we would have. You made the passing of my mom easier.
I will miss you greatly.
To your family Thank you for sharing such a great lady. My prayers will be with you all.

So many wonderful memories with this truly beautiful soul! I was in one of her very first classes when she began her career in1978. She helped mold my future when I had no idea that eventually I would call Europe my home and would actually live in Paris for part of that time. As a teacher she could reach you by making you feel important. She cared. She was always a friend. She made the classroom fun. May God be with her family as they bid farewell to her. With deepest sympathy “Pascal”.

Mrs. Sheeley,

You taught me French when I didn’t think I’d pass the class, but you taught me also to never give up on anything. I loved your attitude, your smile, and even though I graduated class of 84, all these years later you had a lasting impact on my life. Lots of prayers and hugs to your family. I know God has his arms wrapped around you...

You were always the best teacher, you made a real impact. Not only in school, but you taught those of us who were watching, how to give. Much respect.
