Sheila was born in Rockwood Tennessee on July 4, 1951. Her mother always told her that she missed the Fourth of July parade that year because she was in the hospital. Sheila attended Central Elementary School in Rockwood TN, and is very proud to be an alumni of Rockwood High School's Class of 1969. Sheila took business classes in high school and started working as a secretary to a prominent attorney two weeks before high school graduation. She met (in 1969) and married (March 15, 1970)Connelly William (Bill) Altum and they had three children before divorcing in 1984. She then met and married Richard Eugene Lemons and loved his children as her own.
Sheila worked for M. F. McDavid, Attorney at Law in Harriman Tennessee for two years before quitting to become a mother. During the time her children were being born and were small, she worked at a factory in Spring City. When the children were all old enough to start school, Sheila started a job as secretary for another attorney, Ken Yager. She worked for Ken when he was an attorney, County Attorney, and County Executive. Ken went on to become State Senator and Sheila worked for two other County Executive's, Mike Farmer, and Ron Woody, before retiring on July 19, 2013.
Sheila loves spending time with her family and spending time with her grandchildren making many wonderful memories.
