So sorry to hear this terribly news. I loved visiting with Sheila over coffee, she said a train ride to the train museum was on her bucket list so we got tickets and did it. She had a great time and made friends along the way
She will be missed.

Sheila was one of the first neighbors Scott and I had became acquainted with. There was the first new year in our neighborhood and we all went but kept running home to check on our kids from Sheila's house. She was kind when my sister needed help giving us a crib and some baby clothes. Also gave me some bulbs for my front garden which we large beautiful leaves that stood about 5 ft tall. RIP 😘
