Ms. Shelia Osborne

June 16, 1947 ~ November 28, 2021 (age 74)


Sheila Marie Osborne was born on June 16, 1947 to her loving parents Shirley and Robert Osborne Sr; in Evanston, Illinois. She was the eldest of
seven children. Preceding her in death were her parents, Shirley and Robert Sr., as well as her three brothers Micheal; Robert Jr. (LuBop), and Calvin (Crab).

Sheila was educated through the Evanston Public School District. During her time as a student, Sheila met and fell in love with her high school sweetheart. Out of this love came one daughter, Dawn Marie (Osborne) McKinley. Throughout years of helping nurture and foster her 6 younger siblings.

Sheila developed a passion for caring for those in need. She decided to pursue a career in healthcare to utilize many of her natural abilities. Sheila spent
many years in her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse, (LPN) working in skilled nursing facilities as well as providing in-home private care. Unfortunately Sheila was forced into early retirement due to medical conditions of her own, however, her acts of service persevered. Upon her exit from healthcare, Sheila continued to care for her own family members as they grew in age. The elders in the family always knew that Sheila was just a phone call away.

Sheila was a very loving and strong-willed woman. She was never afraid to voice her opinion or share her wisdom with others. She had a beautiful soul
and was accepting of everyone. Aside from serving others, Sheila really loved music, poetry, and traveling. It is our hope that Sheila is able to spread her
wings and travel until her heart is content.

She leaves to mourn her only child Dawn; Sisters Sharon (Shawn), Kathy (Anthony), and Lori (Tim); two grandchildren Amber, and Asia (Kwame, Jr.)

and one great- grandchild Kwame III. As well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Please keep the family in your prayers.
