Some memories from family:

One of mine was her jingle bells. How she added more bells to her
pants as Christmas got closer. When she worked at Sam’s the little
ones knew their great aunt Shelley was working from the sound of
sleigh bells.

I was younger and going to see her work at the Lodge and she opened 6
bottles of beer with her forearm, I was amazed….also loved her little
smokies she would make for Thanksgiving….grape jelly was her secret

She loved Christmas ! She would always come to family get togethers
with her Santa hat on.

The year we got our dog Sable , She spent her first night with her
Aunt Shelley, She loved her ever since. Aunt Shelley even let her
steal a little leopard baby toy.

Loved how she would talk to her little fur babies…She is with her dog Sassy now.

Aunt Shelley sure did love Christmas and her fur babies. Also I loved
her vegetables she grew and she would share some of those miracle
growth secrets. Like how she would use eggshell for her tomatoes.
Oh she just enjoyed her planting so much. Aunt Shelley could tell
some good jokes too.

She was a very hard worker at Sam’s and good neighbor, she loved my
dog and she left me two plants at my gate that I still have….I will
miss her

Aunt Shelley could make a yard look so beautiful, she defiantly had a
green thumb like her mom. She knew how to keep flowers every year.
It’s comforting to know she is now with her mom, dad, sister great
niece and her beloved Sassy. Love you Aunt Shelley and you will be
missed but I know your pain is gone now.
