Lotta Hope Shelby, age 95, of Cumming passed away Sunday, April 10, 2016, at the Oaks at Hampton.
Ms. Shelby moved to Atlanta in the 1940's from the Midwest and embraced the southern lifestyle. She was a Past Queen of the Daughters of the Nile and was a part owner of Tuxedo Auto Parts in Sandy Springs until retirement.
Following retirement, Lotta moved to Cumming where she was an active member of Cumming Baptist Church, serving a number of committees. But she was most proud of being able to host the Shriner's July 4th party at her Lake Lanier home for 27 years. Memories of Lotta Shelby will be cherished by many who knew her.
A special thanks to the Oaks at Hampton Assisted Living for the compassionate care in her last years.
