  4. Aunt Shelvy was many things to us all…a fiercely loving mother to two accomplished daughters…a loving sister….a fiercely independent modern woman with entrepreneurial skills that were a blessing to all who knew her. She was an inspiration, a true survivor.Thanks for all the good times you shared with my husband when he was a little boy on weekend visits to your home. Thanks for the positive role model you were for my daughter. I always said she always seemed more “grown-up” after visits to her Aunt Shelvy’s. Thanks Aunt Shelvy.I love you for all you meant to my family. Rest in peace. You did a great job!
