Listen to a recording of the service:

Our beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother left this world peacefully during an afternoon nap.
Sheila Joan Howells Child was born to Thomas and Rosina Howells on March 18, 1931 in Cumbran Pontypool Wales, Great Britain. She came to her parents the youngest of nine children. Sheila was baptized at the age of 17 into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At the age of 18 her parents sent her to America in hopes of finding an Eternal Companion. She met Grant Bates Child while working at the LDS hospital. They married March 1, 1951 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with seven children. She raised six of them to adulthood, teaching them to love the gospel and our Savior Jesus Christ.
Sheila enjoyed many hobbies; knitting, sewing, quilting, and dolls. One of her favorites would be her grandchildren. They will remember her for taking them out for their birthdays, ice cream trips, and making them feel loved.
Sheila loved working in her church callings, serving faithfully in many capacities of Relief Society and Primary. One of her favorites was being the leader of Achievement/Activity-day girls.
