On May 25th Shelia Yvonne Washington left us to join God, and her parents. Shelia was born in Detroit, Michigan on May 10, 1959 to Alice and Wesley O’Neal. She was educated in Detroit Catholic schools and attended Wayne State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. After college, she began her career working as an office manager. She also enjoyed extensive domestic and international travel with her mother, sisters and friends. She also was a loving and dedicated caregiver for her mother during an extended illness. In 1988, Shelia married her husband, Vincent, and they began a wonderful life together. Shelia was as a loving wife and mother to their daughters, Amber and Allison. Her family was the center of her life; she put them first and foremost ahead of anything else. After staying home to raise her family, Shelia returned to the workforce ultimately becoming a bookkeeper for Fort Bend ISD at First Colony Middle School. Shelia loved her work, her co-workers and all of her dear friends. Shelia, the “middle sister,” was kind, supportive and the best friend anyone could ever have. She impacted the lives of everyone she met in the most positive ways. Her smile and personality always made everyone feel loved and special. She brought joy and life to everyone she encountered. Shelia is survived by her husband, Vincent; daughters, Amber and Allison; sisters, Diane Moore (John) and Cynthia Martin; nieces and nephews, Brittany, Danielle, Isaac, Adam, Nancy, Dianne, Lori, Danielle, Staci, Michael, Blaine, Sara and Luke; extended family; and, many special friends.

We are so honored to be a part of "The Washington's" family. As hard as it is to believe that our precious Lil'Shelia will no longer be with us physically, she will live on forever in our hearts! We now have our own personal angel looking out for us... she will truly be missed. To Vincent and the girls, a quote from Psalms," Be still, and know that I am God."
We love you & are here for you no matter the time!

To the Washington family, I was very shocked and sad to hear of the passing of Sheila Washington. I met Shelia in Detroit Michigan over 30 years ago. We had a great times. She had a smile that could light up a room and her laughter was so joyous. We may have lost touch along the way through life , but she will never be forgotten. May she rest in eternal peace. May God Bless and guide you. Friends for "LIFE"

Dear Washington family, I am very saddened by your loss and pray you are comforted by God's hand. I was a newbie to First Colony Middle School this year, but that only lasted a week. Shelia saw me, introduced herself and quickly helped me be acclimated. From that moment on, I found a surprise in my box each week. A chocolate candy, BobCat tee shirt or any coupons or gift certificates the staff were giving out. She told me not to worry; she would take care of me. We even wore the same kind of jewelry, and we joked about it. I can still hear her high-pitched voiced saying, Hey Ms. Moore. I am truly going to miss her, but know she is living peacefully with the Father God.
