She enjoyed working in her flowers and yard, cooking for her family, and spending time in Gulf Shores at her beach house Tide Together. She also loved her many travels with her husband, but most of all, she loved her children and grandchildren. From sporting events to recitals, countless birthdays, holidays and beach trips, Sheila loved every minute with her family. Spending time with them was her greatest joy.
