Sheila was a kind soul who lived for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was a genuinely selfless and compassionate person who put the needs of others before herself. Sheila and her beloved husband adopted two grandchildren and one great grandchild. Sheila loved spending time with her family, celebrating the holidays, and, in years past, bowling with her teammates. She adored Christmas, Santa Claus, and Snowmen, decorating her house with countless prized figures every year and filling it with joy. She was an avid Cowboys, Cubs, and Elvis fan. Sheila will be missed dearly by all those who loved her.

(Kim) Becker, and Stevie Becker.
