Shelia DeMedicis

February 26, 1957 — June 6, 2023

 

Our most beloved Shelia went to Heaven on June 6th, 2023. She was preceded in death by her parents George and Juanita West. Shelia is survived by her loving husband, Doug DeMedicis; son, Keith Morris (Jennifer); sisters, Cynthia Pinson (Tal), Linda Morton, Donna Rigg; stepdaughter, Anna Wright (James); grandchildren, Emmie Morris, Addie Morris; step grandson, Riley DeMedicis and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Shelia was born February 26th, 1957, in Birmingham, AL. She graduated from Banks High School in 1975. Shelia worked various administrative positions throughout her work career including, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CSC / Computer Science Corporation and Bradley Law Firm.

Shelia was shining light to many people. She received much of her joy from spending time with her parents when they were living, her son, her sisters, and her cousins. Beach trips with her sisters and cousins were some of her best times. Attending her son Keith’s sporting events and beach trips with him and his family were fun too! Watching her grandchildren play soccer was also a great joy. Over the years she and her husband Doug enjoyed many memorable overseas trips as well. Her flowers in her front yard made her very happy too; she loved planting flowers and plants.

Shelia volunteered for events with the Alzheimer's of Central Alabama and Eastern Women’s Committee of Fifty and loved her time spent helping these organizations. Shelia was a member of the Calvary Chapel Trussville and was proud to have been at the first service of the new church four years ago.

Shelia will be greatly missed by all that knew her. While we as a family are heartbroken, she is healed and rejoicing in Heaven. Praise the Lord!

A very special thank you to the 1South ICU nurses and doctors at Ascension St. Vincent’s that took exceptional care of Shelia in her last two weeks of life as she battled complications from diabetes. Also, a special thanks to Dr. David DeAtkine and his medical staff for their thoughtful medical care for Shelia over the last 15 years.
