Sheila Bears info
When my Mother, Sheila, passed away, the hospice she was in offered a Memory Bear program. However, we thought all of her clothing had been accidentally donated and that we lost our opportunity with making bears. Four months later, as I was going through her suitcases which I thought were empty, I found some of her clothing. Within six weeks, I had sewn up five bears and was thrilled to be able to send one to each of my siblings. A couple of weeks later, I had finished four more bears and was able to send one to each of my Mother's sisters and one of her closest nieces. As I was making them and showing them to my friends, several people said they wanted me to make one for them. I made the first Baby Bear with my girlfriend's granddaughter's receiving blankets and all of a sudden had orders to make more bears.
Much to my delight, Sheila Bears was born!

My husband and I are proud 1993 graduates of Texas A&M University. I hold an AS in Biology and a BS in Sociology and Health Education. He holds a BS in Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences. After a few years of working as an Executive, we decided that it would be best for me to stay at home with our children full time. Since January 2015, Jeff has been retired after 21 years serving in the United States Air Force which has taken us around the world and back to San Antonio, his home town. I have been able to create an evolving career, working from home, moving often and being with the children. We are thankful to our Lord, Jesus Christ for all of His abundant blessings all these years.
