Shelley Ann Koch

April 5, 2018 8 Condolences Print Obituary

Our Shelley was taken by cancer April 3, 2018 at the age of 55.

She leaves behind her husband of 35 years Kevin and their three children, Leanne, Kyle (Kelsey) and Brayden. Most special to her was Kyle and Kelsey’s first child, her first and only grandchild Nixon, who just had his second birthday.

Born in Edmonton as Shelley Ann O’Brien she was raised in Sherwood Park and predeceased by both parents Lawrence and Lily. Shelley was the second youngest of seven children and is survived by five brothers and one sister, Jim (Elaine), John (Sandy), Rick (Debbie), Larry (Cori), Erin (Ken), and her youngest brother Ken.

Shelley really liked her job at the Sherwood Park Hospital. She loved her pet dogs and artwork was her passion. She painted many portraits, horses, deer, old barns, and anything else that caught her eye near her home on an acreage just outside of Sherwood Park.

She was truly blessed with having so many good friends whom she met throughout her life and she cherished them all.

Our family wishes to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all the palliative care staff at Grey Nuns Community Hospital and to all Alberta Health Services staff that helped her along the way.

To honour Shelley’s request there will be no funeral. We invite all family and friends to the Koch residence July 28, 2018 for an informal casual gathering. Summer time on the veranda was Shelley’s favourite place to be.

Please email kochex16@gmail.com if you will like to attend and receive a reminder in July.

She was there in an instant when I needed help, even while she was sick. She was more of a mother to me than a close friend. My thoughts and love will always be with you Kevin & Family. Your mother/wife was one in a million and oh so selfless and strong. I will miss her smile dearly.

    Love, Sylvia
