Shelley Kathleen Gillespie Obituary
1947 ~ 2014
On January 30, 2013, our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend was reunited with her eternal companion following a courageous battle with cancer. Shelley was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 2, 1947 to R. Glen and Lura Curtis. She married Lynn R. Gillespie in the Salt Lake Temple on May 29, 1967. Following the unexpected death of her husband in 1992, and after graduating from LDS Business College in 1994, Shelley began work for the Utah Symphony and Opera in their development department where she remained until retirement in December of 2012. Those who knew Shelley were blessed by her quiet, sweet, and caring disposition and her great love of family who she loved immensely. Her great joy in life was taking frequent trips across the country and abroad to be close to her children and grandchildren.
Shelley is survived by her children, Michelle (Darrell) Tolley, Geoff (Emily) Gillespie, Stephanie (Alex) Archibald, MaryJean (Andrew) Corry, Trevor Gillespie, and Brian (Rebecca) Gillespie; her sister, Sandra Thaxton; and 13 grandchildren, with one on the way.
She is preceded in death by her husband and her parents.
A viewing will be held on Thursday, February 6th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Neil O'Donnell & Sons Mortuary, 372 E 100 S, Salt Lake City, followed by a graveside service, to be held at 2:00 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn, 3401 S Highland Dr, Salt Lake City.
