Do you like my hat?

She is survived by her mother, Ranelle Kirkpatrick; brothers Larry Kirkpatrick and Kris Kirkpatrick; father-in-law Bill Rinehart; brothers-in-law Ken Rinehart, Steve and Marnie Rinehart; daughters Kim Nelson (Chris), Krysti Bryant (Nate) and Chayse Quezada (Jeffery); her favorite son, Keith Wilson; grandchildren Nathaniel, Kaden, Krystabel and Colton; her best friend Ken E., and numerous friends who were like family.

Shelly always had a way of bringing happiness to all that she met, an attribute we could all use and apply to life. She could light up a room with her silly sayings and smiley faces. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her. A celebration of life will be held Oct 13, 2018, at her daughters’ home in Squirrel Valley. All who loved her are welcome. Special thank you to Optimal Hospice for all that they do.

To answer your initial question… We do! We like it! We like that party hat!
