He had made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
Sheila Ann Stevens McGehee, much loved daughter, sister, mother and friend passed from this life after a long battle with heart and lung disease on August 31, 2021.

She was a long time resident of Bogalusa, LA where she worked at the Bogalusa Paper Mill for 25 years. Sheila had many friends and never met a stranger. Everyone loved her even if her sarcasm was a little much at times. She was very caring and always wanted to cheer people up. She would spend hours a day calling and texting to check on friends and family. Her grandbabies and great nieces and nephews were her world. She loved sending them packages to make them smile.
Sheila is survived by her mother MaryAnne Strong Holcombe, her children Shanna Latino of Madisonville, LA, Josh Latino of Baker, LA, Makena McGehee and Matt Lang of Slidell, LA and Jesse Applewhite and husband Ira of Carrier, MS, ten grandchildren, Brooke, Harper, Corbin Lang, Lexi, Levi ,Lainey Applewhite, Aliyah, Annalyce, Addley Sumrall and Joshua Latino, sisters Tanya Adams and husband Daryl of Jackson, La, Carla Fitzhugh and husband Jerry of Chesbrough, LA and brother Faron Holcombe of Jackson, LA, a dear Aunt Loura Zachary Stevens, nieces and nephews Jarid Adams, Jermi Adams, Jada Barber, Jayce Adams, Coleton Bennett, Bailey Anthony, Katie Fitzhugh, JeanPaul Holcombe, Wesley Holcombe, Halle Holcombe and Michael Holcombe, friend and former husband Jason McGehee, dear friends Ariel Seal, April Sumrall and Erika Cutler.
Sheila is preceded in death by father Carroll Stevens, step-father Reverend Wilson Holcombe, brother Scott Holcombe, husband Johnny Latino, grandparents Mable Sharkey Strong, Eugene Strong, Mable Hyde Stevens and Allen Stevens.
Because of the destruction caused by hurricane Ida that hinders any service at this time the family has made the decision to have a Memorial Service on Sheila's birthday November 7 and honor her wishes to bury her ashes by her dad at the Hyde Cemetery, Chesbrough, LA.
Brown-McGehee Funeral Home in Bogalusa, Louisiana is in charge of arrangements.
