In Memoriam - Sheila Cole


Sheila Cole passed away on Jan 1, 2016. Her family was with her when she succumbed after a long illness. Sheila joined the docent ranks in 1997 and was Docent Chair in 2008 and 2009. As Chair she worked to provide meaningful input to state parks regarding docent training and docent organization policy. Sheila was on leave of absence from docent activities since 2013 but she was taking part in an effort to garner support for a memorial to Mariano Vallejo in the Plaza. City Council approval and initial funds were obtained and when that project comes to fruition it will, in part, be a tribute to Sheila’s unflagging support of our historic heritage.
