Sheila Renee Schuett, the daughter of Floyd and Mary (McCheseny) Henson, was born on June 30, 1954, in Lake City, Iowa. She received her education at Lake City High School. Sheila then moved to Ida Grove, Iowa, where she raised her three children: David, Heidi, and Cory.

Shelia was previously employed at Gomaco in Ida Grove and Bil-Mar Foods in Storm Lake, IA. She then began a 20-year career as security officer; first at WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, IA and most recently at Denison Job Corps Center. Sheila very much loved her job in Denison, IA, where she was still employed at the time of her passing.

Sheila and Ernie enjoyed traveling together. They took frequent trips to the Black Hills, Branson, MO and Colorado just to name a few. She enjoyed playing a competitive game of euchre or cribbage and tending to her faithful four-legged companion, her dog Max. Sheila will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.

Left to cherish her memory include her sons David Schuett of Thorton, CO and Cory (Trudy) Schuett of Holstein, IA; significant other Ernie Rickabaugh of Battle Creek, IA; granddaughters Maddi Schuett and Maci Woodward; brother Dennis Henson of Colorado; sisters Jenette Buse of Adel, IA and Mary Lou (Victor) Clearwater of Rockwell City, IA.

I had many fun times with Sheila. ”
