Shelia was born on July 31, 1968, in Delhi, LA and passed from this life on February 2, 2023, at her residence near Crowville, LA.  Except for 3 years that she lived in Biloxi, MS and another 4 years that she lived in Delhi, LA. She resided in Franklin Parish the majority of her life.  After high school she attended college at what is now ULM and decided to go to work before she graduated.  After working for several years, she decided at the age of 42 to return to ULM and finish her education.  She graduated with honors at age 46 and went to work teaching in the Franklin Parish School System. First at Baskin School, teaching junior high school English and after two years went to Franklin Parish High School, to become the Spanish proctor and had all juniors.  Shelia loved her students and there were always a few special ones every year that gravitated toward her.

 

Shelia has a life-long love of animals and she always had a few dogs, cats or rabbits around.  She had a heart to help any animal in need.  She also loved the beach and tried to go every summer somewhere to a beach.  For many years she was an avid tennis player and played on a tennis team for many years.

 

The thing she was most proud of were her children.  They were her pride and joy and she was always pushing them to do more, make better grades, be better people and live up to their potential.  She was so proud to be a LALA when her only grandchild was born in 2021.
