Sheila was an avid reader who always enjoyed conversing about films or a good book, she enjoyed visiting and using the services of the Waltham Public Library, and she truly loved her long walks with her dog “Beau”.

Sheila is survived by her three loving & devoted daughters Kathleen P. Dunn and her husband Michael of Scituate, Jane E. Kelley and her husband Edward of Waltham, Bonnie A. Neilson & Mark Casey of Waltham, four cherished grandchildren Edward, Ryan and Sean Kelley and Caroline Lane all of Waltham. Her dear siblings Eleanor Hession of Waltham, Barbara Childers of North Truro, and a large extended family.

A private Memorial Service in celebration of Sheila's life was held for her family.
