Please accept our deepest sympathies. I was in the same classroom with Sheila at St John Catholic School in Red Bud. She was in the 8th grade and I was in the 7th grade. Same room and same Nun, Sister Mary Gertrude, I think. I have the 7th-8th grade school picture----just photos with no names.

Dear Richard and family, I am so deeply sorry to hear of Sheila Passing. You have my deepest sympathies. She was a joy to know, I so enjoyed getting to know her when I was doing her hair. I think of her often and will remember her laughter and joy fondly.
Sincerely, Sue (Huffman) Flowers
