Shelley Brady, age 67, of Northfield, passed away Sunday, July 1, 2018, at her home.
Shelley was born the daughter of Roger Sr. and Virginia (Gabriel) Golden on December 8, 1950, in Denver, Colorado. For the most of her younger years, she grew up in Hastings, Nebraska. Her parents divorced, and Virginia married Ray Myers, who was a large part of Shelley’s life growing up. At the age of 15, she moved with her family to Faribault and attended Faribault High School graduating in 1969. Shelley then attended Minnesota Business College in Minneapolis. Before returning to Faribault, Shelley worked at Maico Hearing Instruments in Minneapolis. Shelley took a position as a sales and service manager for Ryt-way in Northfield shortly after college and continued to work for the company for over 44 years. She had planned to retire at the end of the year.
Shelley became very involved with the Defeat of Jesse James committees when her daughter, Jodi, was a contestant for Ambassador Scholarship Program in 1997. Shelley went on to serve as Committee Chair for DJJD and early on helped organize the parade. She also spent many hours volunteering at the Laura Baker School. Shelley committed herself with her time, talents and love of the community. She was very involved with her grandchildren’s events from having lunch at school with them, celebrating their birthdays together in December or fun times at the lake cabin. Shelley was the person that you could count on and always put others first. She will be known for her positive attitude and smile.
Shelley is survived by her daughter Jodi (Chad) Dobbelaere of Lakeville; a son Chad of Liberty, MO; four grandchildren Kendall and Sydney Dobbelaere and Brandon and Emily Brady. She is also survived by her mother Virginia “Ginger” Myers of Faribault; her father Roger Sr. of Hastings, NE; a sister Raelene (Gary) Burmeister of St. Francis; two brothers Roger Jr. (May) of Mesa, AZ, and David of Columbus, WI. She was preceded in death by her stepfather Ray Myers (2014.)

    I am so sad to hear this news about my sweet friend. I have worked with Shelley for decades. She always went out of her way to take care of her customers. She was a very loving and giving person and she loved her family so much. She would always talk about her grandchildren and show me their pictures. I will miss her greatly. Rest in Peace my dear friend.
