My first memories of Sheila were( as the pesky "kid" neighbor from across the street) coming to her home after school to watch TV. They had the first TV on the block and were kind enough to share it with me for about an hour each night. I am sorry our paths never crossed much in our later years. However, we did live in the same house once-outside of Beeton- her leaving and me moving in as a newlywed. We also inherited her fat old spaniel dog called "Sapphire" who was a much loved member of our family for years. Rest in peace- Carol-Lynne and Larry Smilsky

I choose to remember you making snow angels in your brand new leather coat and when I remember I will smile. Rest easy Sheila.
