  1. Shelly was a childhood friend and I’m so saddened to hear about her passing. So while this is very overdue please know those childhood memories are sweeter because of her friendship. She was a truly sweet and kind person. I would see her at the annual Poe Cemetery Memorial Service but I haven’t been back for there for a couple years. I’m so sorry, she will be missed.

  2. I was fortunate to know Shelly and take a few road trips with her to Chicago and Marquette, absolutely a beautiful sole, she helped me do fundraising for special Olympics, a wonderful role model for my great nieces. You will be remembered and missed immensely aunt shel heaven gained another angel
