The neighbour, who was cleared of two further counts of threatening behaviour, will be subject to a curfew between 7pm and 7am.
She was last year convicted of the offences in her absence but claimed she was too ill to attend trial.
Shreeves was then convicted in February following a retrial after she successfully applied to reopen the case.
Shocking CCTV showed her almost hitting Sandra, 58, as she lobbed a shovel full of cement over the fence topped with barbed wire.

Stratford Magistrates' Court also heard how she told her neighbours “you’re dead” and called one “you dirty f***ing c***".
She was described like a "woman possessed" after "going berserk" during the horror.
Shreeves also destroyed Trevor's fence, garden flowers and potting shed whilst spitting and shouting at him.
The 62-year-old said: "There was a big crunch – she went berserk.
"She went to her garage, took out her shovel and shovelled [and] and threw it over the top of the fence and actually hit me.
"You could see her throwing boulders over the fence throwing stuff at the house and windows.
"She was like a person possessed, she was a person possessed."
Shreeves tried claiming the footage had been doctored but the suggestion was ridiculed by the judge.
District Judge William Nelson told the court: "To suggest that the CCTV footage has been doctored in any way beggars belief.
"What is seen on that footage is a true representation.
"They used to live next door to each other and now they have taken up three days of court time.
