Growing up as a teenager, I became very close with my second cousin, Judy Schuh Underwood staying at her parents, Tony and Gerry Schuh’s farm west of Colby, WI. every summer from the time I was twelve till seventeen.
Of course to all my second cousins, Violet was Grandma Shelley whereas to me she was Great Grandma Shelley but I treasure all the memories I have of her because of these summers I spent in Clark County!
Sometime in the 1960’s the family began to have a little birthday party for Great Grandma Shelley every June.
After her death in 1968 the family continued to have this annual get together. Each year a “volunteer” cousin sets up the Shelley Family Reunion somewhere in Wisconsin and although the family has continued to grow and now lives all over the United States, we meet each year with many coming from far and wide!
I am so proud to be descended from Violet Rogers Shelley!
