She was a nurse by training, but an adventurer in her life! A wife and mother she was a great story teller, often making up very long stories for both her children and grandchildren. They would listen enwrapped within the stories of her telling. In 1999 Sheila was co-winner of hte Senior citizen of the Year award in the Year of the Senior Citizen. She was an amazing woman! She grew up during WW2 in a single parent family, as her parents separated when she was 13. They lived on the docks in Melbourne in a family Service Station. She went to school during the day and worked in the Service Station after school, weekends and at nights. She won a full 'Cello scholarship about this time but it was during the war and on arriving home one day found that her mother had sold her 'Cello to help pay the household bills! On leaving school she enrolled in Nursing only to be the butt of jokes from her family, but she not only succeeded but excelled at this caring role, ending up as acting Matron of "Roma" Private Hospital in East Gosford NSW. Sheila, married Norman M Hunter in 1955. They lived in Avoca Beach all their married life and had two children, Norman Jnr and Sara. They were a well known couple on the Central Coast NSW with Norman a well know Real Estate Agent also owned and operated Avoca Beach Picture Theatre in Avoca, as well as amassing an amazing Natural History Collection that was known and studied world wide and together they were part of many groups and associations in the area.

In 2000, her beloved husband and fellow adventurer, Norman, died from Dementia and she unfortunately followed only two years later from Cancer.
