Shelbie was a faithful employee for Miss Elaine’s Dress Factory in Centralia during her working years. She loved to cook and prepared delicious meals for her family. Shelbie had a tender heart for animals, giving special attention to her furry companions, her little dogs. She liked to relax while sitting on her porch swing and didn’t even let the heat of the day get in the way of enjoying the view from her swing. She had a true musical gift and loved to play blue grass music. Shelbie was a great example to all those who knew her and her kindness and love for her family will never be forgotten.
