Shelda Belle Cameron passed away on March 31st, 2012, in San Marcos, Texas. Shelda was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, Homer Reed Cameron, who passed away in 1990. Shelda was born in Washington County, Ohio in 1932. She married Homer on the 21st of January 1951, and then began what she called "The happiest years of my life". They were inseparable and loved one another unconditionally as Homer carved out their living in the Ohio Valley Steel Industry. Shelda loved the NFL and let everyone know her Pittsburgh Steelers were the Best, as football seasons offered her enjoyment and excitement. She wore-out several Terrible Towels through the years.
Due to failing health, she moved to central Texas in 2010, to allow her son, Alan and his family, to manage her care and well-being. She lifted the hearts of every person she met and made friends easily in the Lone Star State, where she held her ground firmly with Dallas Cowboy and Houston Texas fans. Shelda is survived by her son, Alan Reed Cameron, his wife Margie Cameron, two grandsons, Brandon Joseph Cameron and Jason Reed Cameron, all living in the San Marcos, Texas area, and all adding tremendously to her comfort as she gradually fell to her illness.
She will be missed and remembered fondly for her gentle nature, her special way of thinking of others needs first, and for her enormous generosity.
The family would like to thank Dr. Grayson Smith of San Marcos, Texas for exceptional care and concern and Mr. Jude Prather, Hays County Veteran Service Officer for his diligence, attention and comfort while she was ill.
Final arrangements are being managed by the Thomason Funeral Home, San Marcos, Texas. In Lieu of Flowers, Shelda asked that a donation be made to the Disabled American Veterans at http:\\www.dav.org to better their lives. Her hero, Homer, served honorably in combat during the Korean War.
