Shelia attended Asheville City Schools and was a graduate of Clyde A. Erwin High School. She then furthered her journey as a Banquet Supervisor at the Omni Grove Park Inn where she dedicated 28 years and retired.
Shelia had a heart of gold and loved to cook for her family and friends. She knew how to make the perfect meal without needing a measuring cup. After retiring, she spent most of her time with her kids that she adored more than anything and her grandkids. She always knew how to make visits to “Nanny” house memorable. Whether it was making Adonis infamous pancake & eggs or Amya’s homemade double chocolate cake. She knew how to make everyone feel like they were her favorite. To know Shelia, you knew she was going to tell you straight up what she thought and exactly how it is. She often came with a mighty punch but you always knew it was with a sincere heart. She will truly be missed by everyone.
