NORTH BLOOMFIELD — Sheila Ann Baughman Zombar, 56, of North Bloomfield, passed away holding her husband’s hand on Friday, April, 1, 2022, after a 12-year battle with cancer.
She battled fiercely, and nothing in the journey conquered her amazing spirit and tenacity. As some might say, “Cancer cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot conquer the spirit.” Sheila was the embodiment of this and will be greatly missed; but her bright spirit lives on.
Born Dec. 10, 1965, in Warren, Sheila Ann Baughman Zombar was the first child of Jean Baughman Pendland.
She met her high school sweetheart, Jeffrey, in 1981, and she later graduated from Niles McKinley High School in 1984. Jeff and Sheila were united in matrimony on June 23, 1984. Sheila and Jeff went on to have three wonderful children, David, Matthew and Nicholas.
Sheila worked her early career in banking and took some time to focus on her family when Matthew and Nicholas came along. She adjusted her professional focus to supporting the teachers who worked tirelessly to further the education of children with disabilities. Sheila felt great pride in the work of the teachers and the children and loved her role in the Howland Local Schools.
Sheila relished life and loved nights out with dear friends, sharing a bottle of wine, along with laughter. She and Jeff enjoyed time together — from exploring various wineries to walking hand-in-hand on the beach. Sheila was also well-known as a fierce supporter of her sons during childhood and beyond. She was incredibly proud of them and cheered them on during their various adventures. Throughout her life, she loved spending time with each of her sons, even when they sometimes exasperated her with their four-wheeling antics. Some of their fond memories include bird-watching together, talks during long drives to hockey practice or games, watching random shows together and enjoying each other’s company outside. Sheila was conscientious about spending all types of moments with her sons — from heartfelt, long talks about a range of topics to spending time coaching them and their friends in soccer. She was a tough, but fair, coach, encouraging everyone involved to give it their all; but the number one rule was to have fun. Sheila applied this philosophy to all things in life. The world was blessed by how much Sheila gave of herself and her time to her family, friends and community. Sometimes, she worked into the wee hours, only to turn around and volunteer at school first thing in the morning and then, later still, that evening, giving her love and attention to her family. While she always worked hard, Sheila valued relaxing with loved ones and was incredibly fond of trips with her family to Virginia Beach.
“All of these memories and more live on in our hearts as ‘Those we love never truly leave us. There are things that death cannot touch.’ — Jack Thorne”
She is survived by her husband, Jeffrey Zombar; sons, David Zombar, Matthew Zombar and Nicholas Zombar; and her sister, Sheri Baughman Hornton. Additionally, she will be remembered by many nieces, nephews and countless friends.
