Obituary for Sheila J. Wilson

Sheila Jane Snider Wilson, 65, of Indianapolis, stepped into glory on September 7th, 2018 after a lifelong battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Born February 9th, 1953, she was the daughter of Rudy and Patricia (Williams) Snider.
Sheila was a graduate of Southport High (1971), obtained a Bachelors of Science in Education (1980) and a Masters of Science (1983) from Indiana University. She was a 3rd grade teacher at Acton Elementary from 1980 to 1984. For the next 12 years she taught 2nd grade at Arlington Elementary. Her passion for teaching centered around her students, and she still cared about, remembered and followed many of them after they left her classroom. She was diagnosed with MS in 1984 after many years of on and off symptoms. However, she didn’t let the progressive illness interfere with her passions for teaching, sewing, and outdoorsy lifestyle. Even though her health problems became monumental, her unselfish attitude was truly an example of her great character. Her strong faith in Christ, and close circle of friends and family helped her through the battles she faced on a daily basis. After an early retirement in 1996, Sheila dedicated her spare time to her faith and community, and raising her two daughters. She was a member of Southport Presbyterian Church and active in Bible Study Fellowship and small groups for as long as her health would allow. Living out the end of her life at Otterbein Senior Community, she was loved by all and will be deeply missed.
Sheila was preceded in death by her parents and ex-husband Charles E. Wilson II. Surviving family includes her daughters Anna (Robert Christopher) Hischemiller, Alicia (Cameron) Louie, grandchildren Riley, Jayce, and Amara Louie, sister Margaret Elaine (Craig) Dickerhoff, and brothers Charles “Bud” Lee and Paul Joseph “PJ” Snider.
Services for Sheila will be held at Southport Presbyterian Church at 7525 McFarland Blvd. on Saturday, September 15th at 4 pm, with viewing preceding the service starting at 2 pm.
The family would like to ask in lieu of flowers/gifts, donations be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
