She is survived by her father, Ed Brown of Wood River; three older brothers, Rory (Mindy) Brown and their children Sadie and Nolan of Grand Island, Brad (Trina) Brown and daughter Kailee of Lincoln, and Marty (Jaime) Brown and children Alyssa and Kolby of Wood River.
Shelley fell in love with David Joseph Green. They were married 28 years. David and Shelley had two girls, Holly Elizabeth and Rebecca Lynn, and lived much of their time together in Grand Island. Rebecca recently married Jalen Larson of Grand Island and Holly is to be married, January 2nd, to her fiancé Nathan Mauslein of Kearney. Her family was Shelley’s life, chasing after daughters at speech meets and coaching her daughter’s bowling team. She loved and lived by the saying “Beyond Blessed”. Shelley made it sure that her blessings poured over in small acts of kindness to any soul, especially around the holidays. She felt that God had blessed her in so many ways, so she passed those blessings on.
Shelley is loved by so many and will be missed by many more. All the lives Shelley touched as a mother, wife, friend, coworker, and a complete stranger, will feel her love even into death. We are all Beyond Blessed to have had Shelley Renae Green in our lives. Shelley had plans to travel and see more of the world, sadly, the world will not get to experience the light she brought and love she had for all.
Shelley is preceded in death by her mother, Sharon Brown.
