I have many fond memories of Sheila; the trips to Pennsylvania, to the Vermont Quilt Festival and to Cathy Berry's shop in Harvard Square for Friday night classes. Sheila was so very talented with her wonderful artistic eye in picking fabrics for her quilts and her hand sewing and quilting skills. She was a good friend, always good natured and I loved to make her laugh; it was infectious. The world is definitely a poorer place without Sheila. RIP, Sheila.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Talking with Chris, I know how much your mom was loved. Although I did not know her, it is obvious she raised her sons with love, respect and sensitivity as they took care of her as she continued her journey of life. May she rest in peace and may her memories live in your hearts.

So sorry to hear of the passing of such a wonderful lady. I have so many great childhood memories spent at your house. I still remember your amazing ability to be able to hold a conversation while typing what seemed like a 1000 words a minute! Chris, Peter, Matt, Jon and the entire Toomey family you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace Mrs. Toomey.. Bob Coleman
