I’m saddened to hear about the loss of Sheila. She was a long-time, garage sale customer of mine. I always enjoyed her stopping by with her bright smile and wonderful personality! I was happy to see and talk with Sheila in June at her great nephew’s graduation party. What a fun, lovely lady! My deepest condolences to the Borovich family.

I have worked Jamboree for several years now. Sheila was always there smiling. She showed concerned and offered help if needed. Sheila was so kind and remembered me every year. She will be missed. I am so sorry for the family’s loss.

Sheila was always good for a hug and a smile when I traveled to Bellaire for NIGCS. She was a lovely lady and it is sad to think she will not be there to greet us again.

On behalf of the class of 1950. Sheila and her friend always was in attendance at the monthly dinner for the class of “50”. She was loved by all. Her smiling face will be missed by her many friends. THE LORD HAS GAINED A NEW ANGEL.

So saddened by Sheila’s demise. I knew her for a number of years through NIGCS and always looked forward to seeing her in June & Oct. Sheila always greeted you as if you were her best friend. And, every time I saw her, she would ask whether I had found addl. items in a particular Imperial pattern to add to my collection. She was such an asset to the NIGCS, and she will certainly be missed.
