Miss Sheridan, 92, was one of four children, including three daughters, born to Civil War hero Gen. Philip H. Sheridan and the former Irene Rucker, and last of the siblings to die. She was a long-time resident of Washington, DC, and had lived at 2251 Massachusetts Avenue, near Sheridan Circle, the site of Gutzon Borglum's famed equestrian statue of her father astride his warhorse "Rienzi". It was said that she, her twin sister Irene, and their elder sister Mary, none of whom married, began each day by leaning out of their bedroom windows and calling out "Good morning, Papa!" in the direction of the statue, which had been unveiled in 1908. A devout Catholic, she was interred in the Sheridan plot in Arlington after a Requiem Mass at St. Matthew's Church, where her father's funeral had taken place 81 years earlier. Also predeceased by her younger brother, Philip Jr., in 1917, her mother in 1939, her nephew Philip III in 1948, her elder sister in 1959, and her twin in 1964, Miss Sheridan had resided in the family home on Massachusetts Avenue to the last. She was survived by her niece, Carlina Sheridan Glasgow McElroy.
