Sheila Annette Ashley, age 71, the daughter of the late Hope Reece and Roberta Reece, transition to heaven on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, surrounded by her loving family in Lindale, GA.
Sheila was married to Oliver Ashley, the love of her life for 53 years. She was a hard worker and retired after 23 years from Sara Lee. She was a faithful active member of New Vision Church in Silver Creek, GA. Sheila was the patriarch of her family. Her love influenced everyone that crossed her path specially, her grandchildren that light up when talking about her, and her adventurous spirit, and to prove this she went zip lining on her 70th Birthday, this was such a memorable experience for her to the point where she constantly talked about going back. She loved the outdoors and going on trips to the mountains. She really enjoyed cooking and feeding everyone with love. One of her favorite past times was going to yard sales however she never had a ticket in her 71 years of life but the only one she ever got was because she had to make a last-minute stop at a yard sale, this was part of her love of finding treasures and her young spirit. Her favorite singer was Elvis! She also enjoyed shopping! She had unconditional love for her 17 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, they were everything in her life.
