I just received the news of Sheila’s passing, and i’m just sick!!!! She had been on my mind for a while and I had called on the 21st, and again on 22nd. I felt in my heart that something wasn’t right, because she always call back. I had a First Fridays at a church the first Friday of the month and she would be right there with me without fell. She would clean from the time she’d walk in until the time we would leave out. We didn’t make money, we tried to make a difference for the body of Christ. We were friends and sisters, I know that i’ll miss her more than I can imagine. She and I both have daughters named Angel, I could go on and on, but i’ll end with this, family stay encouraged, and know that she was a loved person. God bless

I’m so sorry for your loss, my condolences and prayers for Sheila’s family. I remember Sheila and 2 other girls singing the Supremes hit, ‘Stop in the Name of Love’ in a school assembly at Clay Jr. High. Later, I worked with her at Kammer-Mitchell plants and we laughed over that memory. May God comfort you.

Sheila will forever be in my heart. You an Ms Carrie Berry were the most nurturing people that ever met. We went to school together, church together an the bars. Those memories will never cease. I feel honored to have talked with you a few weeks ago when you were in North Carolina. An when our conversation ended we both said to each other”I Love you an take care””,… Until we meet again my dear friend..

Aunt Sheila was the matriarch of this family. She was strong and soft spoken. I don’t ever remember her raising her voice. But we all knew when she meant business. My God we will surely miss her. She was always there when we needed her. She raised 4 strong independent children. Her grandchildren loved her. I just pray that we all continue to live her values and make her proud. Your resting with your heavenly family now. I love you in Jesus Mighty name Amen
