Suddenly on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at the age of 48, Shelly was called home to be reunited with her daughter Cora (1993). Survived and forever adored by her husband Justin Johnston of Exeter, sons Buddy (Kase) Webster of Manitoba and Mitchell Webster of Exeter, and her three grandchildren, Aiden, Mia, and Astrid. Who she loved more than life itself. She doted on them and cherished every minute they spent together. From the time they were born they brought so much joy to her life. Dear daughter of Wendy and the late Ron Gregoire (2011) of Exeter. Survived by her sister Gillian (Jason) Potter of Clinton and second mother and special friend Sara Logan. Fondly remembered by her niece and nephews, Austin, Anthony (Jason), Brodie English; Ashley Lavis (Ryan Bushfield), Justice, and Kobi Potter. Predeceased by her brother Trevor English (2008) of Exeter and her grandparents Janet (Smith) and Clayton Reading.
In her younger years, Shelly loved swimming, music and helping as a candy striper at the Exeter Public Hospital. She absolutely adored all animals and was never without a fur friend that she could cuddle and love, especially her dog Zooka. Shelly was such a great conversationalist and loved having long talks with whomever she met. Friends will remember her infectious laugh, quick wit, sass, and sense of humor. She was always there to lend help to a friend in need and could always be counted on. For many years Shelly enjoyed being part of the Pentacostal Church Family and for a time, enjoyed volunteering at Noah’s Ark and soup kitchen. Above anything else, Shelly was an incredibly loving grandmother.
… If there ever
Comes a day when
We can’t be together
Keep me in your heart.
I’ll stay there forever…
