Sheila Ann Smith

Sheila Ann Smith, returned home to her loving Heavenly Father on June 8, 2024, in Salt Lake City, Utah, surrounded by her family and friends. Sheila was born on March 31st, 1961, to Alma and Carma Wilcock. She Graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1979 and went to SLCC where she met her best friend and husband Ron. They Married on July 14th, 1981, and were later sealed for all time and eternity in the SL Temple in 1997. Sheila and Ron had 2 beautiful children, Tyler and Brittany, and a stepdaughter Cori.

If you knew Sheila, you knew that her children and grandchildren were the center of her universe. Sheila was very involved in her community, Church and children’s sports and activities. She was always the favorite chaperon for school trips, the fun class mom and the life of any party. Shelia was always the 1st to volunteer to help anyone especially her children. Sheila worked at the State of Utah as a water rights specialist before starting her own business and making her businesses a full-time career, in addition to being the best full-time mom on the planet. Sheila had an amazing childhood, born to wonderful, loving and caring parents who she adored. She also had what she would say were the “3 BEST SISTERS” in the world who she absolutely adored. She loved growing up with her sisters and often shared their fun experiences together. She would often say they were “the most loving sisters” she could have ever asked for and she loved them so much and would do anything for them. She also had many friends and extended family members who she remained very close to throughout her life that she loved as well. Shelia also loved spending time in Tabiona, Utah, with all of her extended family and friends. Every year, Sheila looked forward to their yearly family “cruise”, or family vacation where she enjoyed sharing quality time with her family, parents, sisters, and friends. She also loved Sunday afternoon rides up canyon in the truck or in the side by side with her husband Ron, as long as he wasn’t driving too crazy. Sheila was not just a loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, wife, and friend, she was simply the best! She was kind, loving, and would always help anyone who was in need, whether she knew them or not. She always went above and beyond for anyone and anything she ever did in her life. She loved life and her family more than anything, especially her grand kids, and she was not afraid to tell everyone how much she loved them, even if it was 10 times a day. She will be so deeply missed by all those who knew her. WE “LOVE YOU THE MOSTEST MOM!”

Sheila was survived by her doting husband of 44 years Ronald Smith, her children Tyler Smith and Brittany Brown (Colby), Her mother Carma Wilcock (Alma), her loving sisters Charlotte Wilkes (Bruce), Sherrie Dennison (David), And Shauna Haws, Grandchildren Brylee Brown, Cade Brown, Ausha Monsler and Italia Rife.

    Dear Shiela’s family, it is with deepest sympathy I find out about Sheila. I worked with her and Shauna for years. Sheila always had a smile a laugh and would light up a room when she entered . She will be missed.

    I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Shiela. Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time. Losing a loved one is never easy, and i can only imagine loosing your mother is even harder. I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Shiela was a remarkable woman who brought so much love and joy into the lives of those around her. Her kind spirit and warm smile will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. I’m grateful for the years I got to know her and the example she was to me and the impression she left in my life.
