Shelley Stormes, 46, of Alma, Arkansas passed away Thursday, August 8, 2019 in a Fort Smith hospital. Describing Shelley’s love for life is like naming the color of a sweet summer breeze. Perhaps a great poet will do that someday. Like the wind, Shelley blew into our lives and, at times, provided the very air we needed to breath. From the gentle breeze of singing a mother’s loving lullaby to her children, to a hurricane force gale that she would unleash on anyone that would threaten those she loved, Shelley was a force of nature that touched the lives of everyone who was lucky enough to cross her path. Shelley loved time with family and friends more than anything else, especially the one-on-one time she had with each of us. She knew how to make any day special for the one she was with. She loved music, concerts, good movies and a gathering of family and/or friends. She coached little league, was a rodeo queen, a Macy’s dancer in the parade, a great co-worker to 100’s over the years and a best friend, loving mother and soulmate. Simply put, Shelley was a star on this earth, and her smile, like the sun, lit up our world. She joined the stars in heaven way too soon for us all. She is now, and forever will be, our loving guardian angel. All our love.

Funeral service will be 10 a.m., Monday, August 12 at McConnell Funeral Home Chapel in Greenwood with burial at Mountain View Cemetery in Hackett. Viewing will be Sunday from 1 – 8 p.m. at the funeral home, where the family will visit with friends from 5 – 7 p.m.

We have a lot of memories, but the top 2 is me taking her for a ride on the forbidden motorcycle and the other will always be how much we enjoyed each other's company when we drank and played games. This is still surreal to me right now, but you will always have a place in heart. Love you, and I damn sure miss you, may God count down the days until we meet again 🙏❤🙏❤🙏❤🙏❤🙏❤

I mostly remember Shelley from when she was smaller. She was always around the ball field when her dad coached. Her and Tyler both. I was quite a bit older. I have gotten to know adult Shelley through Facebook and have shared many a post and comment with her through the years. I know the family and friends have a huge hole right now in their world. My prayers of sympathy are with you all.
