Shelley Ann Johnson, age 63, peacefully passed away on the morning of August 15, 2016, surrounded by loved ones at the home of her mother, Irene Johnson.  Shelley was involved in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury last November.  Since that time, she has had several surgeries and complications that ultimately, led to her passing.  Shelley resided in Florida at the time of her accident but was brought home to Eben, MI to be cared for by her family.

Shelley was a loving mother to her son, Jake (25), who was her pride and joy. In addition to being a mom, Shelley was an adventurous person who was full of life.  She loved to travel and was a dreamer who always followed her heart.   Shelley was very active, you could often find her doing yoga, dancing, out walking, and most recently, playing pickle ball, doing water aerobics or golfing.  Shelley was an outgoing person and made friends everywhere she went.  She had a kind heart and always a beautiful smile.
