Sheila Joy Dodds, age 76, of Howard, Kansas, passed away on October 9, 2019 at her home surrounded by family.  She was born January 18, 1943 in LaJunta, Colorado to Adolph and Ellen Fern (Weinbrenner) Bartel.

At an early age, Sheila's family moved to Wichita, Kansas where she attended school, graduating from West High School in 1961.  On March 28, 1965, she married John Dodds.  They spent 34 years together until his death in 1999.  Sheila worked for the City of Wichita as a secretary, retiring after 30 years.

Sheila loved to shoot guns, read romance novels, and spend time at home on the farm near Howard, Kansas.  She was a huge animal lover, especially dogs.  She loved spending time with her family and recently took a trip to Alaska with one of the grandchildren.  Sheila didn't attend a specific church, but her Christian faith was unmistakable.

Sheila is survived by her children, John (Linda) Dodds of Augusta, Kansas, Kent (Danielle) Dodds of Andover, Kansas, and Lori Brown of Wichita, Kansas; grandchildren, Karl Windholz, Christopher (Terayn) Slater, Amanda Dodds, and Heather (Eric) Weaver; great-grandchildren, Jesse, Kolby, Lexi, and Gage; and her brother, Lonnie Bartel of Cordes Lakes, Arizona.  She was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband, John. 

Cremation has been requested, and no services are planned at this time to honor her wishes.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made in Sheila's name to the Kansas Humane Society and can be left with or mailed to the funeral home.  Online condolences may be left for the family at www.countrysidefh.com.  Countryside Funeral Home, 206 E. Washington, Howard, Kansas 67349 has been entrusted with arrangements.
