October 22, 1937 - September 18, 2021
Mary Helen Sheffield, 83, of Plant City, Florida, born in Washington, D.C. on October 22, 1937, passed away peacefully at her home in Plant City, Florida on September 18, 2021. Born to Orval Sloan and Mary Burns, Mary grew up among siblings and later married Forest “Butch” Sheffield who died in 1990. To know Mary was to love her. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who always centered her life around her family. Many of her children’s friends even saw her as a mother, as she was always caring for those around her. She could be found at every baseball game and cheerleading practice while her children were growing up. Mary enjoyed gardening, puzzles, arts and crafts, taking care of her pets, and enjoying her porch. She always had a smile on her face, and she never met a stranger. May we all remember the impression she left on our lives. She is survived by children, Buttons Butler (Mike), James Sheffield (Stephanie), Patty Mobley (Reggie), Tommy Sheffield, Pam Murray, Pat Lumpkin (Travis), Thomas Greene (Kim), and Joseph Smith; grandchildren, Rocky Clark (Donna), Sabrina Sheffield, Jimmy Sheffield, Austin Mobley (Alex), Ashton Whittle (William), Amanda Mobley (Wright), Mallory Wood (Mitch), Jesse Sheffield (Holly), Robert Brumbelow (Tabitha), and Susan Brumbelow; great-grandchildren, Kaylee, Kamden, Jeweliann, and Sean Clark, Kalynn Davis, Ryann Mobley, Joanna Whittle, Autumn Wood, Emersyn Wood, Annalise Sheffield, Zachary, Aiden, and Blakeli Brumbelow; sister, Joan Kummer; and niece, Vicky Lay (Jon). She was preceded in death by sister, Dolores Stacy; and daughter-in-law, Nanette Sheffield. A funeral service will be held Saturday, September 25 at 11:00 A.M. at Hopewell Funeral Home, 6005 South County Road 39, Plant City, where the family will receive friends beginning at 10:00 A.M.
