Shelly was a Kindergarten Prep teacher at Bright Horizons in Sudbury. She was a former member of St. John the Baptist Church before moving to Massachusetts with her husband Tim.

Many of Shelly’s passions, hobbies and interests stemmed from her love of teaching.  When not at the center, Shelly would be searching for new and exciting ways to teach her children in her class. Every morning when walking into her classroom, Shelly could be seen with a huge smile on her face, knowing that every day is a new day.

Shelly’s family will be holding services in her home state of Wisconsin.
