Sheila was one of the kindest, most caring, and loving people that I know. She was at the top of her game as a crafter and was inspiring. She would give without thought to whoever asked. Her spirit and what she gave to this world should be instilled in everyone.
Sheila loved a clean house. She loved Scubby Doo as her best friend and he loved her back. Sheila cleaned her house on binges. She would spend 2-3 days non-stop cleaning until she couldn’t clean anymore. Then she would rest for a few days. She loved to cook for others, and we enjoyed some of her Menudo and tamales. She had that neighborhood mother mentality. If she was cooking, creating, or whatever, you were going to be a part of it.
Scubby was her protector. Although he loved women of all shapes and sizes, he would get mad and bark at you, if you even looked like you were taking her away. If possible he would smell you from head to toe. He was an awesome companion for her and they belonged together.
As a friend, we would talk on messenger for hours at a time. She befriended my family, especially my mom, site unseen. My mom grabbed a shelf to keep all the wonderful things that Sheila made for her and welcomed more. I was inspired to boost my craft skills to be almost as good as her but I don’t think that will happen. I was blessed to receive gifts from her and be someone that she loved. I will miss her kindness and her love as my friend and sister.
May she rest in peace.
