Sheila Mobley Custer

August 16, 2022, 67, Goldsboro –

Sheila Mobley Custer, 67, exchanged the embraces of her family for the joy of Heaven on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. Sheila was born in Norfolk, Virginia to the late Alton Bruce Mobley and Margaret Elizabeth English on October 8, 1954. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters, Donna Hobbs and Penny Wiggs; and brother, Johnny Mobley.

Sheila’s artistic ability was beyond comprehension. She was an excellent decorator and could arrange flowers beautifully. She used her talents for many years at Carpel’s Florist and Rosewood Florist in Goldsboro where she worked alongside several owners. Her customers were fond of her work and loved the opportunity to chat with her when they stopped by.

If she wasn’t at work, there’s no place Sheila rather be than shopping. No matter the destination or activity, being with her daughters and grandchildren made everything better.

Sheila and her family worshiped with the congregation at The Bridge. Gifted with an ear for music, she faithfully sang in the church’s choir as long as she was able. Faith was both important and evident in Sheila’s life.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at Seymour Funeral Home. A service to celebrate Sheila’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 19, 2022 in the chapel of Seymour Funeral Home. Entombment will be in Wayne Memorial Park. The family will also greet friends following the service at the family home, 1613 Old Grantham Road, Goldsboro.

Sheila is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ricky Custer; daughters, Gail Pierce and husband, Dwayne of Raleigh and Sarah Merrill and husband, Ryan of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Wayne Pierce II and wife, Gabby, Codey Pierce, Aidan Pierce, Keltsey Pierce, Annsley Merrill, Rowan Merrill and Asher Merrill; and a great-grandchild, Aurora Pierce.

Services are entrusted to Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
