Sheila Dee Payne

September 14, 1943 — February 25, 2022

Passed Away: 2.25.22

Our loving, kind, and generous, Sheila Dee Payne of Saint George, Utah was taken from this world on Friday, February 25, 2022. Sheila was born on September 14, 1943, in Coalville, Utah to Maxine Wilde and Douglas Wallace Clark.

Sheila was the mother of five beautiful children, and they were always her most precious gift. She loved supporting her children in everything that they were involved in. Sheila was a busy single mom who held down a full-time job while also raising a home full of children. She made many lifelong friends while working at Salina Medical Clinic, Wheeler Machinery, SUFCO Mine.

Sheila met and married the love of her life, Kenneth Maurice Payne on September 8, 1989. They loved traveling, golfing, and old cars. However, they were happiest when they were alone together on their back patio. They loved watching the sunset together while having a drink, talking about their day, and listening to the oldies station on the radio.

Sheila enjoyed cooking and especially enjoyed cooking for others. It made her day when someone she loved would request, she makes a special meal for them. Sheila made friends everywhere she went. Sheila had an incredible gift of making people feel loved and valued. She was always the life of the party and there was never a dull moment when she was around. She loved playing games and quilting with her friends, but Sheila was the happiest when she was surrounded by her family.

Sheila is survived by her brother, Sam (Jennifer) Clark, children: Natalie (Michael Wade) Hansen, Stacie (Kevin) Rasmussen, Mike (Kim) Hansen, Melissa (Chance) Autrey, Stepchildren: Tammie (Michael) Detray, Jammie Walker, Sherri (Donny) Sampson, 12 beautiful grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and a host of devoted nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
