In Memory

Sheila Happe

Sheila Happe


Age 47, of AppleValley. Loving Wife, Mom, Sister and wonderful friend to so many. Went to be with our Lord on June 18 as a result of injuries sustained in a traffic accident. Survived by husband of 19 years, Jim Radant; daughter Brittany (13) and son Brandon (11); parents Dale & Joan Happe and brother David of Burnsville. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and colleagues who loved her dearly. She was preceded in death by her grandparents Theodore & Loretta Happe of Carroll, IA and Hugh & Theresa Flavin of Minneapolis. Sheila was an accomplished attorney and a devoted mom to her two beautiful young children. A lifelong Dakota County resident, Sheila graduated from Burnsville High School (1980), St. Catherine University (1984) where she was honored as a Distinguished Scholar, Phi Beta Kappa, and received the Lucille Laughlin Award. In 1987 she attained her law degree from the University of MN Law School and was most recently Assistant County Attorney for Dakota County in Hastings. Sheila’s zest for life and her caring, giving nature will live on in the many friends and family who will carry on her lasting legacy.

 Thinking of YOU, Sheila! You were so quiet & humble in school. I do remember your sweet smile. What a great story of success...and your photo is stunning. I'm glad to know you had such a wonderfully successful life. To God be the glory.

God bless your family!

It is wonderful to read all you accomplished during your short time on earth.  You were always a very kind and thoughtful person and those qualities served you well.  God bless your family.

 As a reporter, I was able to see Sheila fairly frequently at Dakota County meetings

I covered.

The first time we saw each other again, we promised we'd have lunch. I think a year

went by, and then suddenly it was too late. I wish I'd have made plans, not just

promises, Sheila.

I was so sad to hear you'd had an accident that took you life way too young.

I was so shocked to hear about Sheila's car accident and that she passed away.  I will always remember even though Sheila was quiet by nature we used to laugh and have fun between classes as she was, for the longest time, my "lockermate".  Me, Heidi Hagen and Sheila were always running into each other at our lockers and chatting between classes.  I knew she was an accomplished attorney and working for the district attorney in Dakota County...I was so proud of her!  I can't imagine what her family is going through.
