Shelby Holvick

May 22, 1978 — August 13, 2022


It is not the strength of the body the counts, but the strength of the spirit. J. R. R. Tolkien Shelby Elizabeth Holvick was born on May 22, 1978 with an innate zest and spirit for life and all it had to offer. Her love of her family, friends and, above all, her son Conner was so heartfelt, deep and true and we were all blessed to be the recipients of that love and devotion. Her life was filled with challenges, but her spirit and tenacity were stronger than those obstacles and Shelby overcame them, finding a meaning, a purpose, and, ultimately, joy and the freedom to soar. Her time with us all regretfully ended on Saturday, August 13, 2022. Please join us in celebrating Shelby’s life and spirit on Saturday, August 20th at:
