Obituary: Sheila Pauline Comstock (1951-2023)

Sheila Pauline Comstock (Age 71)

Sheila Pauline Comstock, 71, unexpectedly passed away on June 10th, 2023 at her home in Nags Head, NC. She will be deeply missed by her friends and family. Sheila was born in Toledo, Ohio. She was raised in a large family with 6 brothers and sisters and would go on to have five children of her own and raise them with her husband, Robert “Bobby” Comstock, in Woodbridge, Virginia.

She was happiest when caring for others, always making sure every mouth was fed and head had a roof. She fostered three children in addition to her five, and she would become a grandmother to 13 and great grandmother to 4. She was a skilled event planner and manager, but she took pride in being a mother most.

She loved being surrounded by her family most of all. Sheila is survived by her husband, Robert “Bobby” Comstock; her children, John David Deardorff Jr. (Fiona Deardorff), Ian Michael Comstock (Lisa Molina), Torey Lhe Ossman (Phil Watson), Robert “Keith” Comstock, Andrew Jones; her grandchildren, John Deardorff III (Alexandra McMahon), Cassandra Deardorff-Villare (Jason Villare) Mikaila Caggese (Sonny Caggese), Brandon Deardorff (Alesha Martinec), Collin Ossman, Luke Gapinski, Taylor Comstock, Kyle Ossman, Brooke Comstock, Aden Comstock, Kaiden Comstock, James Boice, Luke Boice, Arabella McCalla; her great-grandchildren Bradley Deardorff, Sebastian Deardorff, Colton Deardorff, and Sienna Caggese, and her siblings Jean Overly, Janet Ludwig, Kathleen Cook (William Cook), Dewey “Butch” Kessler (Deb Kessler), Kerri Kessler, Patricia & Kenneth Swecker as well as a long list of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Preceded in death by her sons Travis Kelly Deardorff, Marcus Thompson, and her brother Keith Kelvin Kessler.

Sheila will be missed but her legacy will live on through all of the lives she’s touched during her time on earth.
