Sheila K. (Weir) Colburn of Bartonville died on December 29, 2020 after her battle with liver disease. Born September 19, 1969, Sheila was the daughter of the late Linda (Knoll) Miller and Elmer Weir and sister of the late Scott A. Weir. Sheila is survived by three siblings, Cheryl L. Vandegraft wife of David of El Paso (IL), Curtis L. Weir husband of Mary of Carrizo Springs (TX), and Rhonda M. Garcia of Eureka; her three children and one grandchild, Aaron B. Colburn husband of Michelle residing in New Mexico with their child Brooks F. Colburn, Taylor Weaver and Parker Weaver residing in Houston (TX).
A graduate of the University of Phoenix and Eureka High School, Sheila ran a home daycare business so she could be home to raise her children. She later worked as a teacher and an agent for United Airlines and Avis Rent-A-Car.
Sheila was an accomplished track and field runner in high school and enjoyed playing softball. She cheered faithfully for her Dallas Cowboys and St. Louis Cardinals and enjoyed the beach and traveling.
A celebration of life will be planned when it can be safely held, and family and friends will be notified of the date. Her arrangements have been entrusted to Mason Funeral Homes in Washington, IL. As she wished, some of Sheila’s ashes will be sprinkled in Galveston Bay, where she frequently visited. To send an online note of condolence, please visit www.masonfuneralhomes.com.
