Sheila Delores Terry Bradley, age 59, of Silo Farm, passed away on Sunday, October 11, 2020 at the Vidant Medical Center of Greenville, NC after a courageous battle with breast cancer.
Sheila was born on April 1, 1961 to Robert James Terry and Linda Lassiter Terry in Ahoskie, NC. Sheila started her career in banking right out of high school. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Sheila married her best friend in 88′ which formed what we know as the “Bradley Bunch”. She loved her five children unconditionally and being called mom, but nothing gave her more pleasure than being called grandma, “MawMaw”. Mike and Sheila started a career in real estate where they have developed many long-lasting friendships. She looked forward to traveling the world with one of her favorites vacation spots being St. Thomas. Sheila was always up for an adventure, new scenery, and could usually be found on a cruise ship. She could light up any room with her vibrant smile. She was always trying to fix everything for everyone, always there when someone needed her. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
She was preceded in death by a grandson, Nicholas Cayden Brown.
