KEIZER - James Shelley was born September 9, 1927 in Littleton, Colorado to George and Rheba Shelley. He attended school in Walnut Grove, Calif., and served in the U.S. Army. Jim was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Clyde; sister, Avenelle Weber; wife Mary Lou; and wife, Lauretta.

Jim worked for Yader Electric and then the Salem-Keizer School District in maintenance and plumbing. After retiring, he and his wife, Kathy, moved to Las Vegas, Nev. and lived there for six years, enjoying the sun. They returned to Salem in 2004 to be near family and friends. Jim was a member of the Keizer Elks Club, an avid hunter (bow and rifle), enjoyed fishing, rock hounding, and making jewelry using stones he cut and polished. Most of all, he always helped everyone, wherever he was needed.

He was a loving, gentle man with empathy for others. He gave Kathy and her boys the best 20 years of their lives.

Jim's survivors include wife, Kathleen A. Shelley of Keizer; daughter, Sue Shelley Walker and her husband, Jim of Keizer; step-sons, Brian McCord and his children Sarah and Jonathan of Chandler, Ariz. and Kevin McCord and his wife, Bridget of Molalla; step-daughter, Marci Trahern and her family of Sisters, Ore.; brother, Don Shelley of Glendale, Ariz.; and sister-in-law, Gladys Shelley of Keizer.

Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tues., April 1, 2008 and funeral services at 1 p.m. on Wed., April 2, 2008, both at Howell-Edwards-Doerksen with Rigdon Ransom Funeral Home. Interment to follow at Restlawn Memory Gardens.
