Sheila or “SheShe” as she was affectionately known – was born September 30, 1959, in Bourne, Massachusetts, to parents James and Cyndora Jones. She was 1 of 9 children and a graduate of Grandview High School. After high school she married and became a homemaker. Soon after she was blessed with two sons, Kevin and Jesse Wright. Shelia had many loves in life, her sons and grandson being first, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs as a close 2nd. She might have said she was their biggest fan in Kansas City, or even in the whole world. Win or lose, they were HER team. Sheila never met a stranger. You could say her motto was, “Once a friend, always a friend.” She had a big heart, a strong laugh, a beautiful smile and a playful spirit. Sheila would always be game for shenanigans, dressing up or telling jokes…and the jokes were always followed by a chuckle. Sheila had a passion for crossword puzzles, brain teasers and games. She will be dearly missed and will live in our hearts forever.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Stephen and David Jones.
She is survived by her loving sons Kevin Wright, Jesse Wright, grandson Chandler Wright, sisters Connie (Frank) Ramirez, Sheree (John) La Plante, Patty (Jimmy) Scheier. brothers Daniel (Roberta) Jones, Terry (Pam) Jones, Greg (Gail) Jones, and many nieces, nephews, loving friends and her Partner, Mike Venneman.
