Elizabeth (Flewelling) Sheddan of Plainville passed away surrounded by her beloved family on Friday, September 17, 2021, two days after her 87th birthday. She was the wife of Robert Sheddan, with whom she shared 66 wonderful years of marriage.
Born in Presque Isle, ME on September 15, 1934, she was one of two children to the late Robert and Margaret (Preston) Flewelling .

They were married six months later, and shared the next 66 years traveling throughout the U.S., raising four children to whom she was greatly devoted, and becoming proud grandparents. She leaves a legacy of love for her family and many cherished memories, and will be missed greatly.
