I replaced Sheila as the First Seargent for the ladt squadron she served before retiring. It was a great pleasure to work with her, learn from her and laugh alongside her. She was a great servant leader and loved the Airmen she served. My prayers are with the family and my hope rests in seeing her again.

I had the pleasure of working with Sheila at Wilbur. She was a kind hearted woman who had high expectations for her students - and they rose to the challenge. It was clear she never accepted less than their very best, and I know their lives, and her fellow teachers‘, were elevated by her presence. She will be very missed.

Shelia was my "first" First Sergeant as a comnander. She was an OUTSTANDING Servant Leader, providing me with sage advice and was an excellent role model as a Senior Non Commissioned Officer. She entered the Air Force at a time when it was rare for women to serve AND blazed a trail of service and success for all women who came behind her! The Air Force was forever transformed BECAUSE of her service. Deepest condolences from my family to Chief Russell and your family.
