Julia (Sheila) Biskobing

April 22, 1954February 12, 2021

Julia (Sheila) Biskobing passed unexpectedly at her home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Sheila was born to Con and Evelyn Randles (née McGovern) on April 22nd, 1954, in the Bronx, New York, where she was also raised.

Besides being beautiful, she also excelled in her academic studies. After graduating from Saint Nicholas of Tolentine High School, Sheila went on to earn a degree in Civil Engineering from NYU. At the time, Sheila was one of few women in her graduating class to earn a degree in the male-dominated field.

Sheila was proud of her Irish heritage. She most enjoyed meeting family and hearing stories about growing up in the old country. She was adventurous and enjoyed traveling. On one of her many visits to Germany, she was fortunate enough to witness the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Sheila loved cooking and sampling food from around the world. Most often, she could be found in the kitchen cooking up anything from soups, roasts, sauces and scones, usually making enough to feed the neighborhood. Along with cooking, Sheila also enjoyed gardening and being able to use homegrown tomatoes, cucumbers, rhubarb and herbs.

Having grown up in the Bronx, Sheila was a huge fan of the New York Yankees. She passed this passion onto her son Brandon. They had the opportunity to meet some of the legends: Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, and Roger Clemens to name a few. In her later years, Sheila continued her love of the game and followed the Cape Cod Baseball League during the summer.

Sheila was predeceased by her parents Con and Evelyn. She is survived by her son Brandon Biskobing of South Carolina, and her siblings: Michael (Sherry), Patrick (Sheila), Caroline Crowley (James)and Kerry Morahan (Martin).

A Celebration of Julia's life will be held at a later date and time to be announced.

Sheila and I graduated grammer school together and we lived within spitting distance, becoming good friends through our formative years. She was always pretty, and smart, and had the cutest dimples. She made friends easily with the girls and boys in school and was well liked by all. I have some fun memories of exploring the local riverbanks and even swimming in the river on the hot days. She will always hold a special place in my heart and I wish her loved ones peace.

Where do I began to share the memories I am blessed to have of Sheila, my lovely cousin. We had such wonderful fun as children and as adults, from summers in So Yarmouth to my years living in NYC. I loved Sheila's intelligence, humor and love of our shared heritage. Stories galore -yes, she kissed the Blarney Stone as an adult, but her storytelling gifts were there during childhood. Cooking challenges were the highlights of our adult time together - oh, the barbecues we enjoyed together! My love for all her enduring gifts and to my amazing cousins! I miss you all! Be safe and we'll see each other for more storytelling and the gifts we have as family.

"It's the neighbor!" she would say, at our door, asking if there was anything we needed as she headed out to shop. "Here, try this, I just made it." Some of the things we will missI A neighbor, who never said no to you......Rest in Peace ...May the roof over your head always be strong and may you be in Heaven half an hour before the devil knows you"re dead....

We always got a grand welcome when we came to the Cape ( we are part-time next door neighbors). Shiela always had food in hand to share and yes she was a wonderful cook. We will miss her Irish laugh and sense of humor. Sending our condolences to Brandon and the entire family. The Kelly Family
