Sheila was always a smiling, cheerful face when entering Wawa. Have missed chatting with her there. She was so sweet to my son and took time to ask after him if he wasn't with me. Saw her a few times recently and it was so nice to catch up. Rest easy, Sheila. You will be missed.

Will miss her terribly . Worked with sheila at wawa from the beginning when it opened up . I was third shift she.was second . She would never leave until everything was done . Wawa will never find a worker like her . When I later came into wawa i would say to sheila you should own wawa she has been there so long . She always had a smile on her face and always willing to talk and ask about my girls . Prayers to the family. She was one special lady in town . And will be missed .

Heather, I'm so sorry for your loss. You took good care of her and though I know this was not unexpected given her illness, it is still hard to lose a parent. I hope that all your good memories of your Mom help to smooth the road ahead without her. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Sheila will be missed by all who knew and loved her. When we would see Sheila at Wawa behind the register, it was a welcome site for so many reasons; Sheila was always kind, had a smile, and I always knew the line would move just a little faster. Sheila always made sure we did not forget our change and said a kind word as we left.We have missed her while she was on leave and now knowing we won't see Sheila anymore brings sadness to our hearts. Please accept our sincere sympathy and may these expressions and memories bring comfort. In His Love: Terra and Nancy

I was deeply saddened to learn of Sheila's passing. She was such a special person. I have missed her in the WaWa during the last year and a half. I'm so glad I got to see her one more time this past May. My deepest condolences to her friends and family.

We met Sheila almost two years ago when we joined Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. She was an amazing person who always smiled and had kind words to say. She was so supportive when we lost my dad this past August. We will miss her greatly. Our condolences to her family.

Heather, I'm very sorry to you and your family in the loss of your mom. It's so hard to lose a parent, esp. a mom and from reading the other condolences, it's obvious how very special and loved Sheila was. Please take comfort and strength in knowing she's in Heaven.
