AKRON - A gift from God was given to us on August 4th 1983 and returned to Heaven on July 13, 2012. Sheena D. Thompson gave our entire family the biggest blessing for 28 years of her life.
Richelle Thompson Kelly, "Mamma", gave birth to her in Warren Ohio. Spunky and special, Sheena came into this world determined to make a mark on every life she touched. Her Great Grandmother, Lillian Lepola, "Grams" helped raise her for the first year while Richelle completed her Nursing degree.
We were all blessed to help with raising Sheena. Richelle married Timothy Kelly, better known to Sheena as "Daddy" and resided in Akron. Sheena's Grandmother, Evelyn Thompson, "Grammy" and her Aunt Fader Thompson Reichard "Aunt Fay Fay" helped watch Sheena in Salineville, Ohio and in Florida.
While growing up in Akron, Sheena became passionate about all animals. She had her own zoo room; complete with fish, birds, lizards, turtles and lots of furry four legged critters! She graduated from Ellet High School in 2001 and pursued many different jobs in the animal field.
She purchased her own home in Akron, Ohio and became employed at Aldi's, which she truly enjoyed working for. The love of her life, Jason Coldiron, "JJ" enjoyed traveling and attending fairs. They vacationed in Vegas and made several trips to Florida. They loved Cedar Point, Put n Bay, Wild Water Kingdom Water Park, watching movies and just being together.
