Sheila Maria McLendon

August 22, 1973 — March 12, 2019

Sheila Maria McLendon, age 45 of Moorefield, WV formerly of Petersburg, WV, passed away Tuesday evening, March 12, 2019 at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV. Born on August 22, 1973 in Petersburg, WV, she is a daughter of John Alden Simpson and Elizabeth Ann Western Simpson of Petersburg, WV. She was a member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Petersburg.

Shelia never met a stranger, often inviting anyone in just to talk. Considered a foody by some, she loved perfumes and enjoyed watching movies on the television. Never to be hindered by her disability, she would often explore the neighborhood in her electric chair. To some she was a comedian, the most elaborate storyteller.

Surviving in addition to her parents is a sister, Nancy Marie Shobe (husband Bradley) of Petersburg, WV; a brother, Larry J. Whetzel of Petersburg, WV and niece and nephews, Joshua, Hannah and Jeremiah Shobe.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held beginning at 11:00 AM Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church, 2029 SR 55, Moorefield, WV with Father Josh Stevens as celebrant. Interment will follow at Epiphany-St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, Kessel, WV. The family will receive friends from 9:00 AM until 10:45 AM Saturday prior to services at the Fraley Funeral Home Chapel, 107 Washington Street in Moorefield.

Memorials may be directed to the Petersburg Interfaith Food Pantry, 11 North Grove Street, Petersburg, WV 26847.
