Shortly after graduation from Richard King High School Sheila and her parents moved to Fort Worth, TX where she lived until her passing. Sheila was such a joy to be around, an eternal optimist. To say that she loved music isn’t giving her justice. Sheila’s soul sang to music. She loved to listen to it, sing to the radio in the car, and play the piano. Animals were her next love. Over the course of her life she had many, many cats, dogs, fish, and a turtle.
