Sheila Marie Long, 65, passed away on Oct. 7, 2020, at her home in Annville, PA.
Born on Dec. 22, 1954, she was the daughter of the late Victor John Lash and Christine Rossetti Lash, and grew up in Annville with her three siblings.
Sheila was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, friend to many, and companion. She and Sam Brubaker have lived happily together since 1998 in the Annville home that once belonged to Sheila’s grandparents.
One of Sheila’s greatest joys was spending time with her children and grandchildren; she was their biggest supporter and fan, never missing a game or recital. She also enjoyed bowling with her partner, Sam; reading by her pool; visiting the beach; going to movies and Harrisburg Senators games with her friends; cuddling with her three dogs; and cheering on her favorite sports teams, especially the Yankees.
Sheila was known by all as being one of the nicest, happiest, and most positive people you could ever hope to meet. She saw the good in everyone and everything (making her a great person and an awful movie critic). Always with a beaming smile on her face, Sheila was someone that brightened everyone’s day and truly made the world a warmer, kinder, and better place. She was a sunflower.
Sheila is survived by her other half, Samuel Brubaker; son, Casey Long, and wife, Jessica Long; daughter, Jessica Baker, and husband, Brad Baker; grandchildren, Victor Long, Mariana Long, and Scott Baker; sister, Sharon Moore, and husband, Keith Moore; sister, Cheryl Brankley, and husband, Dave Brankley; and brother, Steven Lash, and wife Sue Lash.
Funeral services will be held on Oct. 14, 2020 at 11 a.m. at the Zion Evangelical Congregational Church at 710 S. White Oak St., Annville, PA. There will be a visitation from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
