Sheila was born in Lewiston Maine Feb. 7, 1953. She was the rock and the heart of the family, always there when someone needed a listening ear. She was the most caring and kind and loving person always putting others first. She was the one person who would always pick up the phone to make sure you were okay or just to see how your day was going. She truly cared about everyone. No matter how many mistakes you made she would never judge. She was always proud of her family. She loved to celebrate all the holidays but she enjoyed Halloween especially so the kids could get messy she is the creator of the “Jello Slide”. Sheila enjoyed trips to the White Mountains with her family and anyone else who would fit in the van. She enjoyed going to the casino to play the slots. She liked shopping.
