On Sunday, December 9 2012, Mary Sheila Abercrombie (McNeill) lost her life due to a serious infection. She was 82. Sheila persevered valiantly for several days of hospitalization, astonishing her caregivers and prompting physicians to remark that she was "fighting like a 35-year-old". Sheila's family was at her side night and day during the battle, and feel privileged to have witnessed her strength, courage and relentless good cheer throughout.
