Obituary for Shelley Ann Brown

Shelley Ann Brown
July 10, 1979-July 14, 2020
Shelley was born in Lubbock, Texas on July 10, 1979, the only child of Duane and Cyndy Brown.
The family moved to the Reno area in September 1980 where they still live. The Brown family
was always active in church work and in 1983, at the age of four, Shelley asked Jesus into her
During her childhood, Shelley’s “adopted” family included Pastor Jim Meek and the
congregation of Steamboat Baptist Church.
Shelley attended Elmcrest Elementary School, Clayton Middle School and McQueen High School where she met her closest friend, Crystal Meservy. They were extremely inclusive and outgoing and always had a large group of friends with them.
After graduation Shelley attended Oklahoma Baptist University, Truckee Meadows Community
College and UNLV, majoring in psychology.
During the Great Depression of 2008-2015 Shelley’s Dad decided to change careers from
construction to home inspections. Shelley was working for a state senator in Las Vegas and
decided to go to inspection school and move back to Reno to work with her Dad. They formed
D&S Brown Home Inspections in 2010 and celebrated 10 years of excellence April 1, 2020.
Shelley was the driving force, always looking for ways to improve the quality of our work.
Shelley was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer March 2018. She continued to
prepare inspection reports until June 27, 2020.
Shelley lost her battle with cancer and went home to be with her Lord July 14, 2020. Her
greatest desire was/is that all her friends and family would know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior as she has for 37 years.
She is survived by her husband Scott Stanley, parents Duane and Cyndy Brown and a host of
extended family and friends.
Funeral will be Friday, July 24 at 10 am, South Reno Baptist Church. Service will be live-
streamed. She’ll be buried at Mountain View Cemetery.
Shelley’s favorite sayings were, “I’m not cancer, I’m Shelley”, “Cancer is messing with the wrong girl”, “Mom, you need to be praying for God’s perfect will, not your will” and “If I go, I’ll be dancing with Jesus”. I am thinking this can go on the back at the bottom maybe??
