Shelley DeHaven

April 7, 1966 — December 27, 2019

Shelley A. DeHaven, 53, of Corriganville, passed away Friday, December 27, 2019 at Western Maryland Regional Medical Center.

Born April 7, 1966 in Cumberland, to James and Cherie (McKenzie) DeHaven Sr.

Shelley was a member of Mt. Savage United Methodist Church, and was an insurance agent with Knippenburg Insurance Agency. Shelley was a selfless, family oriented, and hard working woman. She enjoyed spending quality time at the family cabin and dipping her toes in the sand on yearly beach trips. Shelley was head strong and remained positive throughout her battle. She will be dearly missed by everyone. Her pain has been taken away and we have gained a beautiful guardian angel.
