Sheila Farrington, age 74. Born on December 20th, 1940, passed away on July 19th, 2016. She was a resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado for 50 years and retired from the U.S. Air Force Academy.
She was fond of cooking for her loved ones and making memories full of laughter in the kitchen. She had an open heart and arms for all animals, including feeding any wild animal that made their way to her front door. Sheila enjoyed gardening as she could grow just about anything, dancing, singing, and simply spending time with her loving husband, James Farrington. Sheila celebrated each day of her life and embraced all life had to offer.
She is survived by her children: Cindy and Randy Gallegos and Jennifer Davis; her grandchildren: Jocelyn and Justice Gallegos, and Justin, Jaida, and Jacob Davis. She was preceded in death by her husband, James Farrington.
Sheila will be forever remembered by her kindness and sense of humor to each person she crossed paths with. Her family will remember her by the unconditional love she never failed to show and the selflessness in putting each of them before herself. She touched the lives of each person she met because that’s just who she was… an unforgettable woman. She gave her children and grandchildren a love that will last a lifetime.
