In 1953, she married John H. Shellenberger, who owned and operated Walther Pharmacy at Hamilton and Frankford avenues. She worked alongside him until 1978, when they sold the business. He died in 1999.

As a teen-ager she was a beautician at a Govans beauty shop and a clerk at Cherry's Prescription Pharmacy on Harford Road.

She was a member of the Hamilton Optimist Club.

A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at St. John's Lutheran Church, 8808 Harford Road, where she was a member.

She is survived by a son, Scott D. Shellenberger of the Cub Hill section of Baltimore County; two daughters, Lisa Monnett of Parkville and Cindy French of Bel Air; and six grandchildren.
