Sheila Caligiure Eddy, 80, of Greensburg, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother went to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 26, 2020 in her home surrounded by her loving family. Sheila was also known as the “Boo Boo Bunny Lady”, having worked as a phlebotomist for Westmoreland Hospital for 22 years. Everyone who had blood drawn would receive a “boo boo bunny” bandage, becoming her signature for thousands of people. She would also make and give away hundreds of angels as she helped those who came into the lab for bloodwork. Throughout her entire life, Sheila mentored thousands of people. She was the kindest and sweetest person to walk the earth. A true angel. Sheila was born March 4, 1940 in Clairton to the late Samuel and Lilly (Silverhart) Marcus, and preceded in death by husband, Frank Eddy. Sheila was an Avon Lady (prior to becoming a phlebotomist), coming third in sales for the tristate area. She loved visiting all the customers delivering Avon products and becoming part of their families. Sheila loved her large family get togethers, going to church, creating beautiful stained-glass artwork, creating spool angels, collecting angels, gardening and traveling. Growing up in Clairton, Sheila was known as “hot shot” Sheila on her high school basketball team. She was small but tough. She loved all her pets (as well as all the family’s pets) throughout her life and especially her bird, Marissa. Sheila is survived by her loving partner of 17 years, Joe Bigo (Babe); sister, Judy Valvo; daughters, Cynthia Huth Sylvia (Tom), Sheryl Rupert (John), and Julie Rause (Bill); grandchildren, Zach Huth (Molly), Jacob Huth (Kristen), Jesse Huth (Sara), Samantha Huth (Ross), Jacque Huth (Josh), Lori Rupert (Chad), Ben Rupert, Nick Rause, and Annie Rause; great-grandchildren, Rowan Rupert, Lily Huth, Judah Ashbaugh, Gemma Huth, Leah Huth, and Remington Huth; her special and dear to her heart niece, Valerie Valvo; nephews, Tony Valvo, Joe Valvo, and Ross Valvo; numerous stepchildren and grand stepchildren; special friend Elizabeth Tang and Seng; and special neighbors, Josie and Jim for all their help in this time of need. Due to the present health concerns, there will be no public visitation. All services and interment will be private. LEO M.
