Sheila Rae Barker, passed away
on March 2, 2005. She touched the
lives of everyone she knew by
leaving a piece of herself in each
of our hearts forever. She shared
herself in such a way that her
compassion and love of life will
live on in all of us.
Sheila fought the battle of cancer
with passionate courage beyond
anyone’s imagination. Let her
bravery be an example that the rest
of us can admire, respect and follow.
Sheila was a faithful, tender wife
to her husband Jerry for 45 years
and a dedicated mother to her
children Jerald and Karen. She
was a brick of strength to five
grandsons. Being the eldest of
five, she was always there for and of
her three sisters (Dee, Lola, &
Noleen) and her brother (Carl).
Her parents, Nolan and Vera Blair
from Oklahoma City, have preceded
Sheila in death.
Sheila could have sought fortune or
fame with her outstanding artistic
talents. Instead she captured her
inner beauty and used it as a tool
to warm her home and others.
Sheila will be greatly missed.
She was a very special person.
