Roschelle "Shelley" Huffman, 68 of Cable, went to be with Lord, Tuesday, October 6, 2020 in her home with her loving family by her side. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She fought her lengthy battle courageously. However, "God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So, he put his arms around her and whispered, come walk with me".
Shelley was born December 7, 1951 in Urbana, Ohio the daughter of the late Walter and Katherine (Spain) Jackson. She was the daughter of Rose Mary who willingly and lovingly raised her as her own. Shelley was an instrumental member of the Middletown Church of God, Cable. Her true passion was sharing her faith and teaching children about the Lord. In 2015, Shelley retired as an executive secretary from Scott's Miracle Grow after 34 years of service. She was a member and treasurer for Scotts 20-year club. She enjoyed crafting, shopping, camping, spending time outdoors, and collecting Boyd Bears. She loved gardening and tending to her flowers. Most of all she loved spending time with her family, especially The babies.
Shelley is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Gary Huffman; her son, Jonathan Mark Huffman; her grandson, Gary Fredrick; her brothers, Rhawn (Jenny) Jackson, Robin (Jodi) Jackson, Rex (Teresa) Jackson; her sisters, Redeana (Robert) James and Regeana (Herman) Ericson; sister-in-law Darlene Jackson, brother-in-law, Daniel (Gina) Huffman; as well as many cherished nieces and nephews.
