Sheila later met and married Francis Baumgart who also sadly preceded her in death in 2013. Sheila worked for the Flint Journal for 8 years as a circulator. Sheila enjoyed going to church when she was able. She was an avid walker and enjoyed being outside, walking the trails at For-Mar or other trails, and just on nature walks, in general, was her favorite pastime. She also enjoyed bowling and bowled on a league at Eastown Bowl, as well as playing Bingo. Sheila spent her life taking care of her family, especially her special needs daughter, whom she loved very much. Sheila had an amazing green thumb and had the biggest and best rose bushes around. She also enjoyed lilacs, tulips, and black-eyed susan’s. Sheila had a caring heart and was very giving. She was kind and friendly and will be greatly missed.
