Sheila Ann Niksa 1943-2022
An Irish Goodbye finally reunites the Logue sisters and their parents of Whiskey Point in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Sheila Ann (Logue) Niksa, 79, born on January 2, 1943 was born and raised in Brookline, Massachusetts and died peacefully in her sleep on July 12, 2022. She was the beloved wife and best friend of Stanley Niksa from Cleveland, Ohio whom she met on an unexpected blind date while he was in the Navy. They shared an epic journey together most could only dream of and Sheila will be forever missed and loved by all that knew her. She was the daughter of Irish immigrants, the late John and Agnes “Agie” Logue; and the loving sister of the late Mary Duggan and the late Patricia “Tishie” Smith.
Sheila lived in Brookline pursuing a lifelong passion using her unique talent for renovating homes that enabled her to reach her dreams of living by the ocean in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. She enjoyed being able to call her own shots, living life fully, being a general contractor and supporting her local community where she was involved in the knitting club and volunteered at the Mattapoisett Council on Aging. She always placed others before herself.
Sheila is survived by her husband Stanley; a daughter, Deborah Ann Brennock and her husband Jay Butler of Mims, FL; a son, Michael Niksa and his wife Sumiko Mori of Washington, DC and Tokyo, Japan and two grandchildren, Minami and Yasunari; three nephews, Bobby, Kevin and Craig; and finally by Sheila and Stanley’s rambunctious dog, Fiona.
Sheila’s funeral arrangements will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (stjude.org/donate). Arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd. (Rt. 6), Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
