She was survived by her daughter Brenda Kephart, grandchildren Nicole and Ryan Kedior of Scotia, NY and Jaron Kephart of Orlando, FL. Sheila was also survived by her niece Denise and Jack Kenny of New Jersey and nephew Barry Germond of New Hampshire.

Rest in peace Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and Friend, you will be missed.
