She is also survived by her special cousin and confidant Karen Paddock and her family, John, Katie, and Brooke of Whitehall, her sister-in-law, Ina Parrott, niece, Brenda Rehm and family, nephew, Victor Parrott of

Whitehall and a niece Marie Hyatt and family of Gansevoort, her Montcalm Avenue “family” and numerous friends and cousins. Shelia also leaves behind her four adored cats, Mrs. Garfield, Boomer, Kozette, and Sandi.
