Sheila Marie Eitson

April 24, 1958 ~ November 4, 2018 (age 60)

Sheila Marie Eitson, Age 60 was called back to the lord on Sunday November 4th, she had passed sometime in the night or early morning she was found by her loving partner Barry Garland at around approximately 8am in the morning. The circumstances of her death were not known except for the recent and frequent trips to the hospital that offered very little explanation as to her suffering and apparent illness. She was suffering in her last days but is free from the chains of the disease that had plagued her last few years of life. Born in Dallas, Texas April 24th, 1958 to Ruby Gene Ginn-Eitson and Andy Earl Eitson who both preceded her in death, she grew up in Dallas Texas and was the Second oldest of a family of 4 children all of whom survive her in death. James Watson her older brother of Highlands Texas, Wendel Earl Eitson her younger brother of Kemah, Texas and Karol Elaine Watson of Channelview Texas. Sheila was the mother of Keith Watson and her daughter in law Brandy Watson, the Grandmother of three children Jacob Watson 13, Rubyrain Marie Watson 9 and Kasper Watson age 5, she was the step mother of Chris Jackson who also had a child Haley Jackson and Jeremy Garland of Channelview. She touched and offered support to so many people’s lives, In addition to the lineage of her life in the people that she brought into this world she is credited as being one of the most creative and artful people that a lot of who knew her would say they knew. She found a love for painting early in her life first starting out in commercial painting and wallcoverings and later earning her a place as a scenic artist in the motion picture industry. You would have seen her work in films such as starship troopers, Grindhouse (Planet Terror & Death proof), all the pretty horses, Terms of endearment II, and Sin City to name a few. Primarily she worked out of the Union for theatrical production and Troublemaker Studios in Austin Texas, so her mark and her name are forever engraved in history of film where she has received multiple credits. Beyond her achievements in the film industry she was surrounded by people that knew her as a kind and wonderful person, who was an inspiration and joy to be around. Her life was laced with her endurance to survive and care for others despite her obstacles and the setbacks that she had to endure, having a child at a very young age she quickly became a very serious person that knew how to provide for herself and those that she took care of. Though gone from this mortal world the way that she touched people and influences that her spirit and creativity brought to those that survive her will forever be changed and bitterly sweetened by the fact that though we go on without her, we can still feel her in the brush strokes of her life.
