SHEILA RIEDEL April 3, 1952 – April 20, 2018

How do I say goodbye to you? I’ve known you for more than 50 years, raised two children with you, been through the good and bad times of life, and, for the last two and a half years, nursed you through a terminal cancer diagnosis and treatment.

You were born in 1952 in Hugoton, Kansas, to Otis and Pauline Farmer. They brought you to Los Alamos, where I first saw you walking home from Pajarito Elementary School.
