Sheila impacted everyone who met her, even if it was only once. Her outgoing, inviting personality and infectious smile drew everyone in. She will be remembered as a remarkable fighter who gave everything she had for her family until her final breath.

She was an incredible Mima who was completely adored by her grandchildren. Sheila loved birding, taking beautiful photographs of birds and nature, and her Friday coffee dates with her best pal. She was a friend to all animals, especially her backyard buddies. She had a song for every occasion, even if it was one she came up with on the spot, always a witty remark in her back pocket, and was never afraid to shake her groove thing. Sheila was truly loved by all and is already so sorely missed.
