I believe Sheila and I were counselors at camp HES (Hebrew Educational Society) in the mid-late 1950’s. If her older brother was a jet pilot, although I never met him, then I am recalling the right person. Sheila was a bunk and music counselor with a beautiful voice and a personality to match. My deepest sympathies to her family at her loss. She was truly an exceptional person. Siskind, please forward this message to her family members. Thank you.
