ST. PETERSBURG, FL: Sheila J. Polgreen (formerly of Methuen and Haverhill), 69 passed away at her home, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Sheila was the beloved wife of Fred Polgreen with whom she shared over 41 years of marriage. She was born in Schenectady, N.Y. to Martin J. and Rosamond (Harris) Clapper. Sheila moved to the Merrimack Valley with her family in the early 1970's where she enjoyed skiing with her group of friends and going to the beach.
Sheila retired to St. Petersburg, Fla. in 2000 where she enjoyed the sunny South with her many friends including Nancy and Bobby and Wanda and Smitty. Above all, family was the heart of Sheila's life and spending time with them was her greatest joy. Her unforgettable personality and hearty laugh will live on in our hearts and minds forever. Her memory will be honored through recollections of happy times and family celebrations.
Sheila will be forever missed by her husband, Fred, and their children: daughter, Shannon Sessoms and her husband, Daniel of Spartansburg, S.C. as well as her son, Peter Cardini and his wife, Heather and son, Niko of Derry, N.H.
Until we are reunited in our heavenly father's kingdom, we leave in his hands the love and memory of our beautiful Sheila.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Sheila's name to the American Cancer Society or your local hospice.
