Shelly L. Carrel

Shelly L. Carrel (Swihart) went home to be with her Lord on 12/4/2020. She is survived by her daughter Brittany L. Lucas, ex-husband Tim Carrel, sister Kris Swihart and brother Randy Swihart. She was proceeded in death by her parents Howard & Tamara Swihart. Shelly loved her daughter, her many cats, coffee and the beach! Her family knew her as very intelligent, hardworking and creator of the best Christmas cookies! She had a B.S. Nursing degree and worked for the State of Michigan as a nursing manager. The funeral will be a private graveside service because of Covid.

    Dear Brittany and family, I’m sorry to hear that Shelly has passed. I worked with her @ Fairlawn, when she started working with the State. We worked on the same unit for some time, both went to Clinton Valley, when Fairlawn closed., though we working on different units, we’d see each other & talk. We had infrequent contact, as years passed & we worked @ different facilities. In recent years, I’d visited her home, helped with some chores, cut her grass for her when she was recovering, offering advice on a variety of subjects when she asked. She visited our home for meals with my family & for graduation parties with our boys, She was a good friend, & will be missed

    Though we rarely bumped into each other after graduating HH (we took many of the same classes and both graduated in ’77) and JCC, I was her cousin and will always remember her as a warm, intelligent person who loved to laugh. My best to those she has left behind: Tim, Kris, Randy. And RIP Shelly, Rex

    To the Shelly Carrel family, I had worked with Shelly at Northville and WRPH. I always enjoyed her sense of humor. May your family find strength and comfort to help you through this time of sorrow. Gina Posler
