  1. I have, and will miss Shelly’s honesty, courage, intelligence and compassion for all those who were hurting.
    I will miss us being at my cabin, shopping, lunch outings, great political discussions, long phone conversations, laughing so hard we would cry, riding in her yellow and very fast auto with that darn “fuzz buster” going off way to often. And, oh that beautiful smile and laugh.
    She was such a beautiful human being and such a dear friend.
    My sympathy for all who loved her and appreciated her for who she was.

    My husband was a neighbor and remembers her family and her well. I went to school with her but was a year older so just knew who she was at that time. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends that knew her well.

    Our condolences to Shelly’s family. She was our accountant and good friend for many years. We enjoyed her friendship, appreciated her business expertise and are thankful for having known her. God’s blessings.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear about Shelly’s passing. I wish I had gotten to know her better over the last few years as she was a fine cousin always. I remember fun memories when we were younger and all the cousins would get together. Also as she was working at jobs going through college. May you rest in peace. Tim Woodford
