Michelle “Shelly” Boyd Decker, 60, of Martinsville, VA passed away on December 15, 2022. She was predeceased by her father, Johnny Boyd. Many continue to celebrate her life, including her husband Keith Decker, her children Finley Turner, Sydnor Trent, Christina Beaton, and Elizabeth Howell. Her grandchildren Eleanor and Adley knew her briefly but fondly.
Shelly was born in Manila, Arkansas in 1962. She and her siblings Angie and John were raised by her parents JoAnn and Johnny Boyd. Shelly went on to live many lives, from cruise ships to pageant stages, to yoga studios. But ultimately her favorite place to be was at home in front of the fire with her dog Joey.
She was fiercely independent but loyal to those she loved. Not a single person had a better pajama set collection or could surpass her record-setting hours watched of British television. We will keep the fire lit for you.
In lieu of flowers, contributions to the American Cancer Society would be appreciated.
Norris Funeral Services, Martinsville, VA is serving the Decker family. Online condolences may be made at norrisfuneral.com.
