Shellee Renee was born on July 9, 1965 in Des Moines, Iowa to James and Cora (Stecker) Hatfield.

Shellee loved crafting, scrapbooking, traveling and shelling. From coast to coast, Shellee had been to many places; but one of her favorite destinations was Sanibel Island, Florida. She often spoke of the memories made there with her family. As much as she loved her human family, she cherished her Doberman fur-babies Cash, Coco, Diesel and Titan; who would keep her busy throughout the day.
Left to cherish Shellee's memory are her husband, Trent; son, Teddy; fur-babies, Cash, Coco and Titan; brother, Mark Hatfield; Sister, Jolene Cantrell and several nieces and nephews.
Shellee is preceded in death by her parents, James and Cora, and brother Jimmy Hatfield.

I’m so happy I got to know Shellee over the last 5 years since we got Our doberman from her.
Her sunny personality came across loud and clear in every text or Email. Even more so, her love for her husband and son and her fur babies was unmistakable. I will greatly miss her text messages and updates and our enjoyable conversations. A beautiful human inside and out. Prayers to everyone she loved and held dear.
Memories I will never forget..
There are no words to describe how much I have missed you and will now continue to miss you. Many of my best memories were of us and our families spending time together. You are so loved Shell. Trent and Teddy - my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers are with you.
My thoughts are truly w the family. Met a time or two when I delivered mail on Hyland. She was always so friendly, Trent, I am sending thoughts to you and your family
