Born May 20, 1947 in, Fort Wayne, she was a daughter to the late Charles H. Kuhns and Mildred (Wheeldon) Kuhns. Sheila was born into the world with snow white hair and lived her life through the eyes of a child. She was an inspiration to all as she greeted everyone with a warm smile.

Sheila loved teddy bears, bunnies, painting ceramics, playing the organ, board games, Uno and Rummy card games, and always reading her Bible. She accomplished reading the entire Bible in her lifetime. As a child she attended the school of the deaf and as an adult she attended the Lakeland Church of the deaf.
