She was born on June 6, 1942, in Antioch, CA, to Marion and Frances Sands, and was raised in Madera, CA, where she attended elementary and high school and met the love of her life, Charles. Sheila and Charles were married in 1959 and had three children. They lived in California where they raised their children before moving to northern Nevada in 1978.
