Sheila A. Alfrey 1951-2021

BAZETTA — Sheila A. Alfrey, 69, of Bazetta, passed away peacefully Friday, Jan. 8, 2021, while surrounded by her family after suffering at massive stroke on Dec. 22.

Sheila was born Aug. 16, 1951, in Warren, to Nellie (Binion / Booth) and Adrian Alfrey. Sheila had a total of 10 siblings.

She attended Lakeview and Howland schools, graduating in 1970. In her early years, Sheila worked as a receptionist in the emergency room at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. She became an LPN in 1992 and continued to work at Trumbull. Sheila also worked at various nursing homes and did home health care.

Sheila was known for running late, but she arrived at the Lord’s door early. She was known as a talker — always talking to anyone at any time. She always had a story to tell and knew someone, or at least something about them. She enjoyed reading, history and watching her shows. Sheila liked to visit farmers markets, listen to live music and loved good food. She was an adventurer and loved to travel. She was known to hop in her car and hit the road, often driving down south. She loved her road atlas and could tell you how to get anywhere.

She will be missed by her children, Jeremy (Jamie) Parker, Jodie (Steve) Gibson and Katie (Chris) Freeman; her grandchildren, Kelsey and Kristen Lucas, Gabe and Ethan Freeman, Chelsea Gibson, Miranda (Turner) Antonsen and Reagan and Ryan (Mason) Rosenberger; and great-grandchildren, Hayden and Reece Lomax. She leaves behind her beloved cat, Honey Girl. Also surviving are her siblings Ray Alfrey, Marilyn (Robert) Qualters, Karen Booth, Sandy Johnson and Randy Alfrey.

Sheila was preceded in death by her parents, Nellie and Charlie Booth and Adrian and Mary Alfrey; along with four brothers.
