Joan, Jackie and the rest of Sheila's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I
worked with Sheila for a few years at Middlebury Days. She had a
wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed many little things in life that we
often take for granted. Jackie, I've loved seeing your pictures on Facebook
of you and Sheila spending time together here recently. May God comfort
you all in your time of sorrow and know that she's in the arms of our Savior
safe and sound.
Love, Cheryl Hoffman

Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am to hear the news of her
passing. I had the privilege of working with her at Middlebury Days, and In
that short time she made a huge impact! From her silly laugh, or singing
"Stuck in the Middle with You" during karaoke. She always found ways to
make you smile. She will forever be in my heart. Heaven has truly gained a
beautiful soul!
