Elizabeth Jessica Shelley
December 10, 2013 - May 25, 2019
Our sweet Lizzy, Elizabeth Jessica Shelley, received her sparkly rainbow wings on May 25, 2019. In her short and amazing 5 years, Lizzy was able to touch so many lives. Her spunky, curious, polite, selfless nature would light up a room.
Lizzy made the world a more beautiful place. She could often be found picking flowers, cleaning up litter she would find, or protecting worms. Our sweet girl wanted to share her love with people she knew, and even those she didn't. Lizzy would often blow kisses to ambulances as they drove by, something she learned from her mom, who thought people in the ambulances needed the love.
Lizzy never could pick just one favorite color and decided that her favorite color was rainbow. She adored all of life's small wonders such as these, and got so excited whenever she would see one. She always dreamed of growing wings and flying to her own special rainbow.
The family would like to thank everyone who gave an overwhelming amount of love and support and in lieu of flowers would like to ask that people please donate to the Logan Library, one of Lizzy's favorite places.
A public viewing will be held on Monday, June 3, from 6-8 p.m. at Nyman Funeral Home in Providence. We invite the community, who has given us so much support, to attend. There will be a second viewing from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on June 4th, followed by the funeral services beginning at 1:30 p.m. Lizzy loved to pick flowers, we would encourage everyone attending funeral services to bring a picked flower.
Lizzy will be remembered and celebrated by her parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and all who knew and loved her. As we "Live Like Lizzy" and continue to celebrate her, we know she is with us sitting on top of a rainbow with her beautiful rainbow wings.

Me and my family feel like we lost someone we love. But we know that you are an angel in heaven with the most beautiful flowers in heaven just as beautiful as you sweetheart. You are in heaven with jesus in paradise for eternity. This we know and testify. And you will forever be happy and will unite with your mother. And I know I know we look forward to meeting you one day. Me and my family have so much love in our hearts forever for you. ❤❤❤❤❤

My heart goes to this family and lizzy. I feel like the past week or 2 I've lost someone close to me. But I know she is in paradise with jesus. That's for sure. Words can't describe the paradise and beautiful flowers that are hers all day every day. And she is waiting to be untied with her mother. And they will be in paradise together forever. That's promised. Me and my 5 little girls will always have her in our hearts forever.

Today as I was walking with a heavy heart thinking about Lizzy and her family. My head hung down and my eyes on the ground, a flower caught my eye and I was reminded of Lizzy and how she took joy in the simple things that are truly beautiful all around us. Thank you sweet, precious little Lizzy for teaching me to look for the rainbows after the storm clouds. To Jessica and Deitrick and all who love you, my wish is that through the heartache and tears that the sun will shine so brightly that it will diminish the darkness and your sorrow. May your storm clouds be washed away and the rainbows bring joy to your hearts.

There are no words to adequately capture the grief the family must be feeling.

There are no words to describe how much Lizzy will be missed by those who knew her and those who only knew of her.

Perhaps, everyone who hears of this story will take a moment to reflect on his/her own life and the way he/she treats other people -- and decide to Live Like Lizzy.

Live Like Lizzy -- with love, compassion, honesty, patience, integrity, kindness, optimism, and wonder at and gratitude for the beauties of the world all around.

A beautiful girl, a beautiful life - never to be forgotten.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. I know there is SO MUCH we cannot understand yet, but I also know these words from the Savior are TRUE. He also said your mourning will be turned into joy. I know that it doesn't seem like it now, but that all of this pain now will be absolutely gone and joy will take its place. Praying for all of you.
