Sheila Marie Pemberton, 52, of Jacksonville, Florida, formerly of Pleasant Hill, Missouri, was born, April 14, 1966, in Harrisonville, Missouri, the daughter of Harold Russell and Sharon Marie (Atkinson) Neill.  She departed this life, Saturday, May 19, 2018, at her parent’s home in Pleasant Hill, surrounded with love and family.

Sheila was a 1984 Pleasant Hill High School graduate.

In 1984 she was united in marriage to Fred Mitchell; they later divorced.  On October 21, 1995, she was united in marriage to Virgil Le Roy Pemberton in Holden, Missouri.  He survives.

Sheila most recently worked for Walgreens in Florida. She had formerly been employed as a special needs driver for the Pleasant Hill R-III School district, operated an in-home daycare in Holden, and had worked for the Holden Image Newspaper as well as the Raymore, Missouri Newspaper.  She was an active member of the Rise Up Mission Outreach church in Jacksonville.  She enjoyed watching baseball and basketball, volunteering on church missions.

Along with working with Rise Up Mission Outreach, Sheila often took under her care elderly and in-need customers she would meet while working at Walgreens.  She often took them grocery shopping, to doctor’s appointments, drive them home, or lend to them her listening ear.  Her kind, giving, and tender spirit will be missed by all who knew her.
