Shelly was known to tease her family and give everyone a hard time or assigning different nicknames. She loved to sing karaoke with her sister, Erica, their go to song being “Honey, I’m Home” by Shania Twain.


Shelly was a fighter, giving everything her all, up until the very end. She attended More Church in Amarillo every Sunday with her family.
