Sheila was a Very Caring and Compassionate person, when my mother (mother in law) was not well with pancreatic cancer she was always there helping her out, she was a Wonderful neighbor. She had so many laughs and good times with her even before Shirley got sick. Thank you Sheila for being that caring and Compassionate neighbor for our mom. May you Rest In Peace. You are in our thoughts and prayers.🙏🙏🙏💖💖💖
