Shelly loved nature, her home, her family and creating crafts for them all. She was an avid knitter, gardener, and homemaker. She most enjoyed the time she spent, raising her children and grandchildren with her husband, in her favorite place, Joe Indian Pond. Her smile and gentle nature drew people in, and her sense of humor and laugh captured them forever. She will be greatly missed by friends and family.
The family requests all donations be made to the Parishville Rescue Squad.
