Sheila, as she was called by all who knew her, was very active in St. Edmund Church and parish. She graduated from St. Edmund High School and her children all attended St. Edmund elementary school. Sheila met Edward in a candy store in Brooklyn as the fifties came to an end. They married in 1960, Edward expanded from his carpentry and painting work and became a NYC firefighter. Sheila worked as a bookkeeper for Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation for sixteen years. Her family would often visit Georgia and South Carolina to visit her beloved relatives. She donated her time to various charitable and Catholic causes. Sheila was the matriarch of a large family and a second mother to many others by both proximity and good fortune. Her home's door was always open, with food on the table for anyone that crossed her threshold. She made a tremendous mark on her parish, her family, and her extended family. She will be missed by all who knew her.
