Obituary of Sheila L. Richardson
Please share a memory of Sheila to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Sheila Louise Richardson was born in Bronx, NY to the proud parents of Harry and Thelma Richardson on December 28, 1949. She was the youngest of the two. The family moved to Englewood, NJ in the early 50’s where she completed her high school education at Dwight Morrow High School in 1967. She then went off to attend Central State University for some time and later transferred to Farleigh Dickerson University where she became a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated in June 1973; she received her bachelor’s degree thereafter. Sheila truly enjoyed the sisterhood and service of her dear sorority and took pride in it. She was a devoted member who enjoyed giving back to the community, attending countless chapter meetings, step shows and surrounding herself around like minded women. Sheila found a career working as a Social Worker for 28 years until she retired. She stayed home for some time and tried to enjoy that new chapter but realized that her girlfriends were still working, so she came out of retirement and worked at Vision Quest for 6 years. Although she went back into the workforce it never slowed her down. Sheila was a social butterfly and loved to travel around the world with her girlfriends. She was also a faithful and active member of Mt. Pisgah AME Church in Lawnside, NJ. She was truly a woman with a heart of gold who would give her last for anyone who needed it. She has touched countless lives and leaves to cherish in her memory, her only child, Tasha Drummond, her grandchildren, Jada, DaVontae, Johnathan, her bonus sons Clarence, Quincy, her bonus daughter, Selena, her brother Harry Richardson; two godchildren, Nakia Shaw and Fredrick Holman, her favorite cousin Juanita, her besties Sonja, Fannie, Peggy, Carol and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
