Sheila was my dear coworker & friend! Sharing an office, sitting just a few feet apart for nearly 20 years, we became like sisters in many ways. Sheila was a "girlie girl. She loved her jewelry, handbags, make-up & nails. Her many different hair colors & styles left me looking forward to Mondays as I never knew what Sheila was going to come up with next. Sheila dedicated 37 years of her 67 years caring with People with intellectual and developmental challenges. Many referred to her as "Mama Sheila". Autumn- your Mother lived her life to love and provide for you. You were her whole world, her "Tootie Mae". Your Mom always told me that life here on Earth was just a vapor in time compared to eternity. I have no doubt she is watching over you now and always.-- Amber Cox

You will be missed. Don't worry about David or Autumn, I'll watch out for them. You've been my friend since sixth grade and my brother's wife for almost 50 years. You are at peace, give hugs to our loved ones that proceeded you.
