Shellye Cohagan Gressett
1974 - 2017

Cheyrl and Rick's oldest daughter, Shellye, entered heaven's gates on February 22. She is finally at peace. Shellye had battled horrible anxiety, depression, and then for about seven years alcohol addiction. These diseases are so real and affect many more lives than we will ever know.

It has been a long six days; her funeral was yesterday. Her life touched not only her family and friends in Gunter but Tioga and her school in Frisco. She had a heart of gold and never met a stranger. She had an infectious smile and laughter. The service was such a beautiful tribute to her. The pastors did a great job. Her sister and husband spoke; only by God's grace did they get through that. 

Praise the Lord that Shellye was secure in her salvation! She was a beautiful, loving person. She left behind an amazing family; I know they will be there to lift each other up on the difficult, hard days ahead. 


  1. Oh I am so very sorry. Prayers for your family. Many things we do not understand, but we know that God is good.

  2. Her mother is the friend that my sister and I travel with on our girls' trips.

  3. So tragic. What a hard, hard thing. Saying a prayer for your friend this morning, Diana.
