I met Shelli when I was in high school and we both worked at O'Reilly's in Springville. She was a mentor and big sister to me and I spent a lot of time with her, Robery, Dallas, and Skyler. I was so happy to reconnect with her on FB after many years. She was one of the kindest, most compassionate and thoughtful people I've ever met. If I needed a pick me up I could always look to her posts to find the joy in the little things.
She was a bright light for so many and she definitely had an impact on me and how I need to treat people.
Sister Alvey was my friend. She would often come and find me at Smith's Food & Drug in Pleasant Grove. I am the PR Manager at the store. I knew her best through our sons! My sons and her sons are the same age and grew up together, went to the same schools, and played Air-soft and other games together. My son and her son later joined the Marine Corps (Semper Fi) and served our country. We also knew each other from the Pleasant Grove Stake of the Church. We had a lot in common. I'm going to miss her stopping by the store to brighten my day. We were also Face-Book friends and would like each other's posts. My condolences to her family. She is in a better place now with her son and my son. She knew my pain when we buried my my son Michael on March 4th. 2022 was a hard year for both of us. I have faith that I will see her and our sons some day on the other side. In the mean time, may God bless her family and friends with faith and peace. There is a big hole in my heart. Rest in Peace Shelli Dear! Your friend Harvey
Shelli, So sad to hear of your passing. My memories of you, Robert, Dallas, and Skylar are numerous. I have enjoyed the associations with your family in so many settings from your Home, Church, Young Men's activities, and as Neighbors. Your posts on Facebook have made the distance a little less and has kept me up to date with your family. You will be greatly missed. I know your reunion with Dallas is sweet as the separation from Robert and Skyler will be but a brief moment. May God keep you and your family in the hollow of his hand until that day you'll all be together again. You can be proud of your accomplishments as a mother and wife. God be with you until we meet again.
