Mrs. Trahan was a bus driver at A.A. Transportation for over 25 years. She loved to make homemade candies and cakes, and was known as the “Candy Lady” to those closest to her. She enjoyed kayaking with her husband, taking her dogs on nature walks, and time spent by the water, especially Hampton Beach, Webster Lake, and Maine. Sheila never met a stranger and welcomed everyone into her life with open arms. She considered anyone she met to be part of her family and would put everyone else ahead of herself. Her presence in a room was palpable, she was kind to everyone she met, and she loved her grandchildren more than anything.

Burial will be private at a later date. Calling hours are Friday, August 20, 2021, from 6-9 p.m. at Paradis-Givner Funeral Home, 357 Main St., Oxford.
