Bobbie Jean Shelton

Today we have lost a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend but heaven has gained an angel. Bobbie Jean Shelton, 83, a lifelong resident of Flag Pond, TN, passed away of natural causes at the Christian Care Center in Erwin, TN on June 30, 2021. Bobbie retired from Morrill Electric after 30 plus years of dedicated service and remained in the community where she enjoyed the love of her family and friends. Bobbie was an avid animal lover who enjoyed the companionship of her many dogs to include “Teddy” whom she leaves behind with family. Although Bobbie loved all of her family and friends, it was her wish that special thanks be given to her best friend in life, Pat Cole, for always being there for her. Bobbie will be laid to rest in the family cemetery with a private ceremony per her request.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like to request that donations be made to the Unicoi County Animal Shelter 185 N Industrial Dr. Erwin, TN 37650.

“Rest in peace my angel as you are in the Kingdom of Heaven”

This obit is lovingly written by her family.
