Mrs. Shelby was born March 9, 1947, in Plainview, NY, the daughter of Siegfried and Ada (Levine) Hirshberg. She married Randy Shelby in Adelanto, CA, in a small, quaint chapel on March 26, 1992, and he survives.
After she and her husband were married, they bought a house and lived in the Ramsey community for 30 years. She had a wide and vast array of jobs over the years, including driving a truck out of Salt Lake City, UT, for Dick Simon Trucking, working at H&R Block, Greenville College, and in her 20s, at the stock exchange on Wall Street. Family and friends thought she was crazy and fun-loving, family-minded, concerned and thoughtful, plain-spoken and to the point. She enjoyed reading, planting gardens, visiting with friends, and belonged to the Silver Sneakers group at the Vandalia YMCA.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her sons, Danny (Meghann Summers) Shelby, of Knoxville, TN, and Aaron Shelby, of Ramsey; grandchildren, Niki, Angie, Noah, Trinity, Reygan, Tanner, Danny, Ryder, Makenna, Skyler, and Phoenix; brothers, Louis Hirshberg of Del Ray Beach, FL, and Gary Hirshberg, of Israel; a niece, Jamie (Mitchell) Fingerman; a nephew, Stuart (Holly) Hirshberg, and a host of other nieces and nephews; good friends, Jim and MaryAnn Arter of Riverside, CA, and their children, Asia, Amber, and Shelby; Brenda Grannis of Lincoln City, OR, and Rochelle Glick of Kendall, FL.
