Always remember her as one of the "Bertrand Girls" as we all came together in school around Jr. High. Fun times at the Morrow house for sleepovers where we gathered and got to know each other. Later in our adult life we attended the same church and Sunday school class, where we got to know each other on a spiritual level.
We will miss her political opinions and always being on top of the latest topics. She is in the presence of Jesus and now all is perfect.

Some of my earliest memories are with Sheila. One of my favourite things to do was go to Sheila's house for a sleepover and a beignet breakfast. She took me on trips and visited me in Oklahoma as I got older. She made me feel special with her kindnesses.
Sheila was a teacher at heart. She taught me how to win at Scrabble, how to use a computer, how to look after animals and how to share (although that lesson took a while!). Some of her other lessons I now recognise later in life.
I love her very much and am so sad not to be there at her funeral. I'm sad she didn't get to meet my youngest child. My heart goes out to the rest of her family and friends at this sad time. With love, Amy Darby Walker
