Sheila Joan "Joanie" Childress, beloved daughter, sister, cousin and niece of the Childress and Church families, passed away after a significant illness on June 9, 2017. She was born in Marion, Ohio and resided in the greater Cleveland area for most of her life. She had a strong Christian faith, loved God and attended Christian Life Church of Mentor for many years.

She loved her family dearly and greatly enjoyed genealogy and spent much time tracing family history. She also loved music and played piano and other keyboards. She enjoyed history and language and pursued a degree in Spanish as well as a medical/dental training program which allowed her to care for others.

She is preceded in death by her parents and survived by her sisters, Lisa Creighton and Melinda Childress, as well as her treasured pets.

A private family service will be held at a later date.
