The family will receive friends Wednesday, December 13, 2023 from 5 to 7 pm at Linville Memorial Funeral Home.

Shelia enjoyed every minute with her grandchildren and they loved her in return. She lived her life for her salvation with Jesus and spent every minute telling people about Jesus. She was a very compassionate and caring woman who spent all her time taking care of others. She loved her church and her church family. She was a very humble lady who didn't want for much and always talked about her mansion in heaven. Shelia has been described by so many in the last few days with words like caregiver, God-fearing, prayer warrior, humble, loving, honest, great as they come and a saint. Her family is so proud of the legacy she leaves for all to remember.
