Sheila A. Kolesnik

April 1, 1975 — December 30, 2022

Sheila A. Kolesnik, 47, of Easton, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, December 30, 2022.

Born on April 1, 1975, she was the daughter of Paula Kolesnik-Kohler and James D. Kolesnik.

Sheila always wanted to be there for others. From children to the disabled, to her family and the elderly. She didnt become the president, but she was my Wonder Woman.

My mothers biggest accomplishment was bringing me into the world. Having a child is the most challenging job and she took it with no hesitation.

In her younger years, she was quite the popular Liberty High School Cheerleader. Later she became an adventurous nature-woman and proud mama.

She is and will be loved infinitely. We will all miss her beautiful heart, smile and big blue eyes.

She is survived and will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Aubree T. Betz and her father, Matthew T. Betz; companion, Chad Check; mother, Paula Kolesnik-Kohler; father, James D. Kolesnik and his wife Dawn; step-mother: Barbara Kling; brothers, James Kolesnik, Jarrid (Nicole) Kolesnik, Enzo W. Poretta, Danny A.
