Sheela was a great friend during the roughest years of my life. She listened to me, tried to understand me, corrected me, guided me, and taught me so many life lessons. Her impact on who I am today is profound. I am blessed to have had you in my life and hope to one day see you again.

I’ll always remember the weekends and many Halloween parties/hayrides at your parents as we grew up, running up and down your parents stairs on the house on Vermontville Hwy. I’ll always remember what a open, honest person you were and you never had a issue telling somebody how it was. That’s a good trait to have. You will be missed by so many! Many many hugs being sent to your dad, husband, Collin, your step children, Kelly, Mary, Wende, Diane & many family and friends. May you RIP.

I knew Sheela since elementary school. I remember going to the same slumber party together. She continued to be a friend into adulthood and we had a great time at our 20-year class reunion. Fly high as an angel Sheela!

I met Sheila when she was very young. When I started doing her mom’s ( Jenny’s) nails. As Sheila got older, she started getting her nails done, and we became close friends. Our son’s spent a lot of time together while growing up. Her heart was huge. We had a lot of great times together, and I’ll never forget her. Or her mother. And I know she’s with her mama now!!
