    I went to high school with Shelly. She had a unique sense of humor that would sometimes get her in trouble with the nuns. But she was loved by her classmates. I have many memories of fun times with her. Sorry we didn't see you at our class reunions. I pray you are resting in the hands of the Father. RIP 💔 Eileen Snatchko Miller

    Shelly was one of my favorite people. I always hoped she was the one answering the phone when I called into the office so I could catch up with what was going on in her life. She always made me laugh and set my day up with a smile. Rest in peace my friend. Bev Trautman

    I loved Shelly's sense of humor. Every day I came into work she would crack me up. She was feisty little ball of fire who wouldn't take any crap from anyone. I will miss her. Denise Pascarella
