I'm very sorry to just learn about the loss of Sheila. I believe I met her years ago when I used to live in Herrin maybe at the soup kitchen where I volunteered. I'm also a friend with her son Michael Hess here in Carbondale and remembered her photo that day years ago that he shared with me. I will keep this family in my thoughts and prayers my sincerest condolences.

Sheila was a beautiful person inside and out. I enjoyed working with her while her health allowed her to work. She was a carrying, giving, thoughtful special person. We kept in touch with each other after she left our workplace. I enjoyed our visits, hoping someday she would be able to come back and work with me again. She is no longer suffering; she is at peace. She may be gone but never forgotten. RIP Sheila Go Fly High on That Mountain. Love you Debbie Richard

I did not know Sheila personally but I recognized her photo as someone I have seen around town. I am sorry she passed so young! God be with the family at this time. I think we should all acknowledge the lives of those we barely knew. Condolences, Bob Eaton
