Of Everett. Passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on October 16, 2023. Sheila was born in Boston on November 10, 1956 to the late William Burbine and Josephine (Serino). Devoted mother of Nicole Pesce and her wife Gabriella Pesce of Tewksbury. She would have been a proud “Nuna” of a soon to be baby girl Pesce. She leaves behind her brother Brian Burbine of FL. Also survived by many loving cousins and countless friends.
Sheila spent nearly her entire career as a Controller for Ford car dealerships and, later, Russo Marine where she received countless achievements and made many lifelong friends. More recently, she worked in the cafeteria at Salemwood School in Malden. Anytime Sheila talked about this job and the school kids, she could light up a room. It was truly a special “retirement” gig for her. Sheila enjoyed the simple things in life – some of which included sunbathing at the beach, dining out for breakfast, shopping, going to the casino and playing games like Pokeno and LRC. Above all else, Sheila cherished the time she spent with family and friends. Sheila was as authentic as they come and always stayed true to herself – she was generous, immensely strong willed and loved to make those around her laugh. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
