On Sunday, March 15, 2020, Sheila Denise Woodall, loving wife, daughter, mother, sister, and grandmother, passed away at the age of 60. She peacefully made the beautiful transition into Heaven while surrounded by her family.
She had a wonderful, full life and was content with her time here on Earth. The cancer may think it won the battle, but we give God the glory, as it was her time to go home.
Shelia was born on May 20, 1959 in Salisbury, Maryland to Dwight and Betty (Dayoob) Adkins. Her family later moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico, and then to El Paso, Texas where she married and raised her four children. For the past 19 years she has resided in Arizona. She worked in the grocery industry for over 25 years and retired in 2010.
Sheila will be forever remembered by her husband, James; her children, Karen, Megan, Lauren, and Dylan; step-children, Jaymee and Crystee; her son-in-laws, Isaac, Derek, and Garron; her six grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Ethan, Cameron, Aiden, Avree and Khloe; and her siblings, Ronnie, Dwight, and Anita. She is preceded in death by her parents, Dwight and Betty, and her sister Carol.
People were not her only loved ones. She had a strong connection and love for her Siberian Huskies and her kitty, Gio. She raised those dogs like they were her children. It was her hobby and how she spent a lot of her time the past 10 years.
Most of all mom loved her time with family and friends. She was present for family gatherings, family vacations, dinner outings and loved casino. She loved her grandchildren endlessly. She was their biggest supporter in all that they did. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren.
She left knowing how much she is loved and we all know how much she loved us.
Wife, Mommy, Gigi, sister and friend… for anyone who knew her, felt her JOY, FORGIVENESS and unconditional love! She was beautiful. She was selfless. She was LIFE. She was the life of the party, with a contagious smile and stunning eyes that lit up the room. That unforgettable laughter truly shows she was one of a kind.
Let us continue to make her proud. We are all going to miss her so very much, but are forever grateful for the many memories.
To our Angel in heaven, we love you dearly.
