In Memory

Sheila Marie Nielsen (Barnes) - Class Of 1975

Sheila Marie (Nielsen) Barnes passed away on September 13, 2017, of natural causes.

She was born November 13, 1956, in Ogden, Utah. Sheila spent most of her younger years growing up in Sunset, Utah where she graduated from Clearfield High. She was very creative and artistic, during her high school years she was involved in creating yearbooks and graphic art projects. She spent most of her working years at Sierra Lingerie taking advantage of her skills as a seamstress and later worked at Autoliv. She had many friends whom she loved visiting with and sharing memories. Even with her heart condition and the many surgeries she endured she always had a positive outlook on life and enjoyed each day she was given. We will very much miss her laughter.

The family would like to thank Primary Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospital and their staff for the many years of care and compassion they gave her. Sheila was preceded in death by her parents Lewis and Margaret Nielsen, brothers Gene, George and James (and Rose Ann) Nielsen and a sister Shirley Hill. She has left behind three sisters and a brother; Kathy, Fae, Silvia ad Evan; along with many family members who loved and cared for her dearly. Sheila, we will always carry your memory in our hearts, we love and miss you.
