In Memory

Shelle Cannon (Kilgrow)


Shelle Minette Cannon Kilgrow 8/4/1949 ~ 1/29/2010


In life, Shelle loved her boys, Joshua and Ryder, above all else and was very proud of them. She also loved the outdoors, camping, horseback riding, simply sitting around a campfire. She was fond of animals and usually had a dog in tow when walking around the neighborhood. Following in her father's footsteps, she studied for her pilot's license, relishing the feeling of pulling back on the throttle. She was stunningly beautiful, witty, and smart, and she was proud of having been chosen "Miss Utah for Miss USA" in her early years. She had a gift for decorating and for fashion,and she was among the best salespeople in her field. Everyone who had a chance to know her loved her.  Something about her encouraged even strangers to confide in her, or, if she was in distress, to try to help her. She will be well and truly missed.She is survived by her sons, Josh and Ryder, her grandson, Tristen, her father, David, her sister, Miki, and her niece, Piper.
