April 7, 1957 - February 3, 2021
Sheila Kay Gresham Couch, age 63, passed away at home surrounded by those she loved on February 3, 2021 due to Stage IV small-cell carcinoma. She was born April 7, 1957 in Fraser, Michigan to James and Billie Gresham. She was engaged to Frank Bergamo, her first and last love. Sheila saw beauty in the most unlikely places and people. Her hands were rarely idle. She was constantly starting a new landscaping or home decor project and was always willing to share her expansive knowledge with anyone that needed assistance. Sheila was an amazing cook and often hosted large family gatherings with more food prepared than could ever be eaten. She was famous for it. Something about Sheila that many found charming was her willingness to be very candid when the situation required it. She was well known or not holding back her opinion and had a sincere knack for telling it like it is. She told you the truth, even if you didn't want to hear it. Everyone always knew where they stood with her. She liked you or she didn't, it was as simple as that. With that being said, she was genuine to fault, truly tender hearted in every way, and yet she sugar coated nothing. Sheila was a loving mother first and foremost. She treasured the time she had with her children, and loved being a nana to their kids. Sheila is the loving and devoted mother of Dustin Lyon (Katie Lyon) of Rocky Face, Ga. and Jamie Lyon Wallace (Kyle Wallace) of Henderson, NV. She is also survived by her cherished fiance' Frank Bergamo of Anniston, AL, her dear sister, Lisa Diverno of Dalton, Ga., Adored Nana of of Gage, Abil, and Lexi Lyon as well as Gracie, Connor and Lundin Wallace. She will also be remembered fondly by her niece and nephews Kasie Wudarczyk (Dean Wudarczyk) and Anthony Diverno. Sheila was the beloved daughter of the late Billie and James Gresham, and was preceded in death by her older brother, Phillip Lee Gresham of Heflin, Alabama. All whom loved her dearly will never forget her tenacity, contagious laughter, and love for them. You understood what it was to be really loved when your were love by our mom.
