Obituary for Sheila K. West

Sheila Kent West, 65, of Marshall went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 20, 2018 after a hard fought battle with cancer. Sheila was born December 2, 1952. She was a graduate of West Henderson High School. She went on to graduate from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill with a degree in Physical Therapy.
She was preceded in death by her father, Bula Kent.

Sheila worked in Madison County and Buncombe County in Home Health Care. She was dedicated to her patients and was loved by all. She continued to keep in touch even after they left her care. Sheila was a “present help in time of trouble” for anyone in the community. She was a wonderful Sunday school teacher, singing leader, and church clerk at Oak Hill Baptist Church. Her faith in God and strength was an inspiration to all. Sheila was a devoted Tar Heel fan. In her mind there was no other team.
