Sheila Raye Polly Grogan

Sheila Raye Polly Grogan, 74, died peacefully in her home on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021, with her husband and three children by her side. 

Born in Murray, Kentucky on April 29, 1946, Sheila was a proud Murray High Tiger, class of 1964. She graduated from Murray State University with a bachelor of science in elementary education. In 1965, Sheila married her lifelong sweetheart, Jerry Pat Grogan, and they were happily married for 55 years. The loving mother of three children, Sheila considered this role her greatest privilege and most important life work. She spent many years serving in community activities including the PTA and the Murray Women’s Club. She was a member of Glendale Road Church of Christ.

In 1994, Sheila and Jerry moved to Louisville where she lived the rest of her years. She was an active member of Southeast Christian Church. A two-time cancer survivor, Sheila was inspired to bring the Sterling Service Tea Ministry to Southeast for women affected by cancer. She and a team of faithful friends lovingly served in this ministry for many years. When she wasn’t spending time with her husband, three children and 12 grandchildren, Sheila enjoyed creating art in all forms. She also loved spending time with her friends in Bible study, small groups, walking groups, Grandmother’s Club, Abigail Circle and Peacemaker’s class. She was an example of grace and love to whomever she encountered and lived an exemplary life that honored Christ. She faced three difficult battles with cancer with a gentle and quiet strength. “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28-29

Sheila is survived by husband Jerry; her three children, Eric Grogan and wife Maria of Paducah, Heather Bates and husband Trent of Louisville and Adam Grogan and wife Kelle of Henderson; and 12 grandchildren, Joshua, Piper Shanks (Keagan), Sophie, Wes, Theo, Jeremiah, Polly, Owen, Meryl, Maggie and Edie.
