Obituary of Sheila Ann Leedy

Sheila Ann Leedy, 61, of Columbia, SC, passed away September 30, 2022 after a hard fought battle with breast cancer. She is survived by her father, Harold Stanley "Duke" Leedy, Jr. of Presidential Lakes, Browns Mills, Burlington County, NJ; her sister Robin D. Leedy of Philadelphia; her three children: Constance E. Laws of Ocala, Florida; Wayne "Adam" Laws (Kaitlin Koroschetz) of Wilmington, North Carolina; and Melanie A. Akers of Hendersonville, North Carolina; and three grandchildren: Cassidy Laws (US Army, Seoul, Korea formerly of Rocky Point, NC); Nathan E. Green II of Rocky Point, North Carolina; and Duke Wayne Laws of Wilmington, North Carolina.

Sheila is survived by her aunt: Nancy (Tilghman) Lindroth (David) of Augusta, Georgia; nephew Keith Carney of Pennsylvania; and niece Sarah E. Leedy of Tullahoma, TN.

Sheila was predeceased by her mother Elizabeth "Ruth" (Tilghman) Leedy, Browns Mills, NJ; her brother Harold Stanley "Duke" Leedy III of Tullahoma, TN; and grandparents Sarah F. (Grant) (Tilghman) Dickerson of New Egypt, NJ; Earl Tilghman, Burlington County, NJ; and David K. & Francis (Price) Holt of Destin, FL.

Sheila was a 1979 graduate of Pemberton County High School, Pemberton, NJ and graduated with Summa Cum Laude Brunswick Community College (Wilmington, NC) with an Associates Degree in Medical Coding in 1998 and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa. She was employed by her friend Laura Rosenbaum-Bloom, MD, of Hilton Head, SC.

Sheila enjoyed crocheting, cats, New Orleans Saints football, casual drives in her stick-shift, and listening to music by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). She felt a strong connection to the ocean. Some of her favorite things were hummingbirds, hydrangeas and anything and everything yellow. She loved being "mom" and "mom-mom". She will be greatly missed. There will be a private celebration of life in October.
