Obituary for SHELIA SESKER-BROOKS

Shelia Theresa Sesker-Brooks, lovingly known by her family as "Sheba",
"Ma", and "Maw", was born on Wednesday, March 7, 1962 to the late
Henry Leon and Mary Sesker at Freedman's Hospital in Washington,
DC. In the early morning hours on Sunday, February 2nd, God called
Shelia to eternal rest at her home with her husband Eric at her bedside.

Shelia was educated in Anne Arundel County Public Schools and graduated
from Southern Senior High School in 1980. She was also a graduate of
Chesapeake Business Institute in 1986, earning a diploma in the Office
Automated Assistant Program. Shelia was employed at Nordstrom Distribution
Center in Upper Marlboro, MD for 19 years, 11 months until her passing.

Shelia was joined in holy matrimony to Eric Brooks on September 22, 2012.
Shelia had a heart of gold and loved people; especially spending· time with
her sons and grandchildren. She enjoyed shopping· and loved going· to the
beach. Shelia was an avid sports fan and passionately supported the KFL
team, the Dallas Cowboys. You could find her cheering on the sideline or
in the bleachers at both her children's and grandchildren’s sporting events.
Her quiet time consisted of watching the ID Channel, the local news, and her
two game shows, "America Says" and "25 Words or Less". Prior to Shelia's
diagnosis, she would be found hanging out with her two sisters, Nancy and
Cynthia and her friend/adopted sister, Gwen. Shelia was a gracious giver
and a nurturer, who ensured that her family was taken care of.
