Sheila was a very dear and special friend. At West she was very quiet like the rest of us who hung out together. She married and had two great sons and now has a granddaughter and a stepgrandaughter that unfortunately she never got to know,She would have been a great grandma!!!!! We go way way back,we stayed close after school and we were even in each others weddings. We did alot of things together with our children and I have alot of crafty things that she made me still in my house to this day. She had a heart of gold and was always there for you or anyone in your family that need help. I would watch her kids,while she did meals on wheels, that's the kind of person she was. I will always love her spirit and warmth and miss her always!! I have kept my promise to her and I am trying to take care of myself and my family and I do race for a cure in her memory. Love and Miss You, Carolyn Bates Cozad

Sheila was not only my classmate from elementary school through high school, she was also my teammate. In the summer's during our junior high years we hung out together, as we only lived a block apart. We played on the same Dad's Club softball team from 6 thru 9th grade. I started out as a bad softball player, but after hanging out with Sheila and practicing with her in the neighborhood, I became a much better player. My fielding ability improved tremendously, thanks in large part to Sheila practicing with me. She never taught me to be a power hitter though. That was her area of expertise. Man, could she smack a softball, often out to deep center field! I will always lovingly remember Sheila for her patience and friendship.

Sheila and I were friends all through grade school, and although we lost contact somewhat in Junior High due to different classes, we reconnected in High School because of the Co-op program. We became good friends again during Senior Year and had a lot of fun enjoying slumber parties and bowling and skating parties along with Carolyn Bates and Wilma Dohrmann. I can still remember her telling me to “shut up,” whenever I sang along with the radio. And, I remember her referring to a couple from our class (I don’t remember who) as “Uglio and Ugliette.” Following graduation, we were in each others’ weddings. We lost contact after her first boy was born. I’ve recently being trying to reconnect with old friends and was very saddened to learn she had passed. I regret that I did not try to make contact sooner. Like Carolyn, I will participate in the “Race for the Cure” in Sheila’s honor.
