There will be a private, family-only service on Thursday (12/13). On Friday, the family will receive visitors at the Bennett Funeral Home in Chesterfield, VA from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Shelby’s funeral will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at the Chesterfield Baptist Church, with burial to follow in the church cemetery. Friends and family are invited to attend.

There are several options to send condolences to the family.

There is also a guest book on the funeral home web site where both public and private messages can be conveyed.

“Again, thank everyone for all the calls, posts, texts and emails.

God Bless! Prayer works in numbers….so please keep ’em coming. Peace.”
