Obituary for Shelly Ann Sachs
Shelly Sachs went to be with the Lord on August 10, 2017. Shelly passed away at the age of 51, surrounded by family at home in Springfield, Missouri.
Shelly was born Meschell Ann Warren in Exeter, Missouri on August 2, 1966 to Cherry and Ann Warren. Shelly married Aaron Sachs on May 19, 1990. The couple welcomed two children into their home, Sarah and William (Will) Sachs. After graduating from Southwest Missouri State University with a BS in Communication, she began a career as a sales representative for Kraft until Will was born in 1997. She was active with her church, the Springfield Junior League and a member of Highland Springs Country Club.
Shelly was a vibrant individual who had a contagious smile and an infectious laugh. She loved her family and was passionate about people. Children always held a special place in her heart. You would often catch her at Will’s games or at TJ Maxx with Sarah. She never met a stranger and treated everyone as family. So, it was a natural fit that Shelly was a greeter at James River Church.
Like her father, Shelly had a love for gardening, antiquing, and rooting on the Cardinals. She never complained and was always in a cheerful mood. She was a deeply devoted wife, mother and friend whose bright spirit will always be remembered.
She is survived by her husband of 27 years, Aaron Sachs; daughter Sarah and son Will of Springfield, Missouri.
Also surviving are her parents, Cherry and Ann Warren of Cassville, Missouri; sister Sally Gilbert and husband Tony of Mountain Home, Arkansas; nieces Grace, Kate and Anna Gilbert, Rachel Christensen and Angela DePlato and sister-in-law Joyce Timmons.
