Sheila I. Winnicki, age 62, of Athens, passed away on Sunday, August 30, 2020. She was born on October 7, 1957, in Sturgis to Harold and Fern (Bickle) Salmen.

Sheila was a spectacular woman who spent her life making every day a new adventure. She was known for challenging herself by reaching beyond her comfort zone. She also encouraged others to do the same, saying “you should always be okay with taking an adventure”. Sheila loved to go to garage sales and thrift stores, searching for the best deal. She spent her time doing arts and crafts, specifically coloring. She will be remembered for her fun loving spirit and her quick wit with a joke or off the wall statement. Above all, she will be remembered as a loving mom. Sheila is survived by her two children, Jacques Charon and Desirae Salmen.

    It all became. A heartbreaking moment finding out my childhood friend had left us here without her. Just finding out I’m now grieving her great loss to myself and many others, there will never be another like your friend. My first overnight stay, my best friend thru elementary and my brst thru life. I love you girl. Fly high and we’ll meet up again soon. I’m voing to miss you like crazy beautiful. You taught me a lot in life and you leaving has left a HUGE void. I’m so blessed to have known and loved you and to call you my friend. Love, Jo
