Date of Birth: September 1, 1944


Sheila Desgrosseilliers, 77, of Auburn, Maine passed away on Sunday November 14, 2021, with her devoted husband and family by her side. Sheila, born to George and Bernice Herrick on September 1, 1944, started and ended her life in Auburn, Maine. Getting married to her best friend, Edward Desgrosseiliers, in 1962, she started her life as a devoted Navy wife, traveling wherever Navy life took them. After Ed retired from the Navy, she settled in her husband's family home in Auburn and built a life with Ed and her 4 children. She attended college and beauty school, but Sheila's biggest accomplishment and joy in life was raising her family and making sure all her children attended and completed college, no matter what.
