  1. I use to live next door to Sheila when I was a child on Terrell street. I loved her name Sheila and I vowed to name one of my children after her. My daughter is Sheila Gaye Hutsell Baker of Lovelady. After I moved back to Houston County I made it my mission to look this lady up. She was a most kind and gracious lady and I was so glad to have named my second daughter after her. She will be missed Wanda Cutler Alderman

  2. Jerry, Marla and family,
    We are so sorry to hear this news, keeping you all in our prayers during this time.

  3. Shelia was our second mom, she raised us as her own. So many great memories with this amazing woman. We will never forget her smile, infectious laugh and fun loving soul! She was always up for anything and put up with our shenanigans. We find comfort that Shelia is with Dobba and Gandy. We love you Marla and family!

  4. Marla and Jerry, I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved mother and wife. She was a dear dear Christian lady. She will be missed by so many. My heart aches for you and your family. Know that my prayers and deepest thoughts are with you today and many tomorrows.

  6. Marla and family, Shelia was a beautiful lady, always looking for fun, with an infectious laugh! I will remember her fondly. Although I haven’t seen her in years, she always remembered me at Christmas with a personal card. I will miss that! My prayers are with you! Leigh

  9. Jerry, so sorry about Shelia, she was a real sweet friend

  10. To Sheila’s family.
    Known her since her high school days and she never changed from the beautiful young sweet and kind person God gave us all to have as a friend.

  11. What a sweet lady I remember; Sheila was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Hugs to all her family.

  12. Sheila accepted me as a newcomer to the ladies class at First Baptist Church here right away. She was one of the most accepting,outgoing, and friendly of the class.This made her so special to me because I needed a friend so badly. Now, I will miss her sweet accepting smile and radiant warmth as a true child of God who wasn’t afraid to make a stranger feel welcome.
    I am so sad to just learn of her passing. Because of the pandemic and isolation,and with out regular church not meeting inside, I just didn’t know about her passing. My heart is broken and goes out to her family. May God bless you all and have mercy on you during this most difficult and sad time.
