Sheila loved children and provided childcare services for family and friends along with working as an administrative assistant.

She was also elected as secretary at her assisted living facility and led Bible study there. Even though Sheila suffered with a variety of health issues, especially during the past few years, she always kept a positive and upbeat attitude.
