Carmen Sheffey Mills

Visitation: 3:00 – 5:00 p.m., Monday, January 9, 2023

Location: Weymouth Funeral Home

Carmen Sheffey Mills, 73, joined her heavenly angels on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer.  She spent her final hours in the loving arms of her sons and surrounded by family.
Carmen was preceded in death by her oldest grandson, Raymond Goodman; husband, Charlie; parents, Norberto and Guadalupe; two sisters, Linda and Mindy; and three brothers, Norberto Jr., Jose, and Anthony.  She leaves behind five sisters, Carmen, Elizabeth (Joaquin), Lourdes, Rose Marie, and Delores; two brothers, Michael and Daniel; three sons, Raymond, Terrone (Rhonda), and Dani; fifteen grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends who loved her deeply.
Carmen was the first Puerto Rican born in Greenport Long Island, NY.  She received her associate degree from Essex Community College in Psychology. Carmen worked in many areas but became a self-employed professional residential and commercial painter.  She was an avid reader/ writer and was a published poet. In her downtime, Carmen loved to fish, study the bible, spend time with her cats, and enjoy time with her sons and family.  Her sons were her world.  She wanted a better life for them, so she relocated to Austin Texas in 1986 where she met her husband, Charlie.  They were married for 25 years.
A Visitation for Carmen will be held from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Monday, January 9, 2023 at Weymouth Funeral Home.
The family asks those who wish to send flowers to address them to Weymouth Funeral Home.
