Shelby Gilbert

Shelby Gilbert

Age - 21

November 28, 2023

Memories of dancing with you are all I have left. Just a few seconds before it's my time to go, Hello, my God and my love, at last I am home. -R5 Shelby Jewel Gilbert, age 21, was called home to be with her daddy John, her daddy Jesse and most importantly, her God on Friday November 24, 2023. Shelby was home with her mother and her younger brother, Creedence, enjoying a peaceful evening when a sudden and unexpected health emergency occurred. Shelby was in the arms of her mother the entire time, surrounded by reassurance and love until God opened his arms and took her home. Shelby was born November 16, 2002, in Mount Sterling Kentucky. She is the daughter of Shayne Hodges of Morehead, Kentucky, and the late John Gilbert of Flemingsburg, Kentucky. Shelby was also blessed with a step daddy, Jesse Hodges of Morehead, Kentucky, who absolutely adored her, as she did him. Not a day passed that Shelby did not speak of Jesse and now she is dancing on the other side of the stars with two amazing daddies that have their baby girl at home with them. Shelby Jewel is survived by her mother Shayne Hodges; her brothers, Kyler Gilbert and Creedence Zane (Morehead, Kentucky); a half-sister, Abagail Gilbert of Evansville, Indiana; her loving grandparents, Scott and Betty Hilterbrand of Wallingford, Kentucky; grandfather, Hal Boehm of Delta, Colorado; aunt Olivia (Roger) Schielke of Grand Junction, Colorado; aunt Cathy (Gary) Moore of Arizona; uncle Dakota Hilterbrand of Wallingford, Kentucky; niece Everly Belle Gilbert of Morehead, Kentucky; special first cousin, Grayson Schielke of Grand Junction, Colorado. Also surviving are her dear friends Olivia Montoya and Chad Starnes. Shelby also leaves behind many loving friends and family and a community she loved so much. From the moment Shelby was born she was my guiding light into a world of the unknown. One look at her and I knew, God has sent me the most precious gift and from that moment on she proved that to all who knew her. Her whole being was that of pure innocence and kindness. She lived in a world where everything was like a fairytale. She'd never allow herself to watch any form of negativity that may change her outlook on the world. She surrounded herself with music, dancing, arts and crafts, shows and movies that were filled with laughter and love, her animals and friends and family. Shelby would want me to mention the love she had for her brothers and how she looked forward to them each and everyday. As well as her precious Papaw, Scott. The bond she shared with the three of them was a beautiful thing to witness. But, we all know, her main love, since she was 10, was her beloved R5. She started and ended each day with the ritual of a few songs of theirs; singing every word and dancing along. If you knew Shelby, then you knew that R5 was our family. We traveled many miles for concerts, meet and greets, and events. We celebrated birthdays and all other huge life events. Her passion for them and all she did was beautiful to witness. Her smile changed all of our lives and her ability to make you see the world through her eyes was the most special gift of all. Being around her allowed you to experience what a life of pure innocence feels like. She accomplished what she set her mind to, nothing held her back, and she never saw her disability as a challenge. She thrived in school, was active in sports, extracurriculars, and was our most beautiful Homecoming Queen-her proudest moment. Her and I shared a nightly saying, "I love you; you are my precious gift from the dear Heavenly Lord. " We would say that while signing it to one another and then she would do a little wiggle with that contagious laugh of hers. It made my day complete. If you all could take a little piece of my Shelby with you while you are here, you'd be blessed with what I got to experience-Heaven on Earth. Pall bearers are: Kyler Gilbert, Dakota Hilterbrand, Chris Johnson, Johnny Cline-Combs, Riley Hutchinson, and DJ (Donald) Shuck. Honorary Pall Bearers are: Creedence Zane, Cody Bolton, Chad Starnes, Jesse Wallace, and Tim Ball. Visitation will be from 6-9 at Northcutt Son for Funerals in Morehead, Kentucky on Wednesday November 29, 2023. Funeral services will be held at 3 PM at Northcutt Son for Funerals on Thursday November 30, 2023 with a private burial to follow at Goddard Cemetary on a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at the funeral home or the family has set up a Go Fund Me account, named Shelby Jewel. I wanna see you smile. -R5Show more

Rebecca Walker

Rebecca Walker

Age - 76

November 26, 2023

Rebecca Anne Wegener Walker July 12, 1947 - November 24, 2023 Our dear precious mother, and beloved daughter of Heavenly Parents, went to her Heavenly Home on November 24, 2023. Rebecca Anne Wegener Walker (Becky) was born on July 12, 1947 to Lois Caroline Westover Wegener and Wilfred Konig Wegener in Salt Lake City, Utah. She grew up in Salt Lake City until the age of 3 when she moved to Richfield, Utah. As a child, she loved taking hula and ballet lessons, and swimming. She was proud to earn her Junior Life Saving Certification as a teenager. When Becky’s mother died in August of 1964, Becky, age 17, helped raise her siblings during her senior year at Richfield High School where she had been active in choirs and Future Home-Makers of America. Upon graduating in 1965, she attended the College of Southern Utah for a year and a half. Becky married Melvin B. Walker on March 15, 1967 in the St. George, Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and 32 years later they divorced. She raised five children and took care of her grandchildren for various periods of time. She worked side-by-side with her husband and children at DHIA (a dairy job) testing cows’ milk and working on the farm at all hours of the night. She taught her children to be missionaries: four of whom served full time missions and one of whom shared the gospel as a Sergeant in the military. Becky returned to college and completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a minor in Music before her 49th birthday. She was a paraprofessional for two special needs children. She also worked in a telemarketing company where she learned great skills in communication. Becky served faithfully in many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, including Primary teacher, Primary and Relief Society pianist, Relief Society Visiting Teacher and Ministering Sister, Primary Secretary, and Ward Librarian. She was continuously working on family history and sharing the stories that had been passed down to her. Later in life, Becky served a Mission for her church in the St. George Utah, member locator mission from 2008-2010. After her mission Becky was able to spend time being with her grandchildren, and finally settled down to live with her daughter, Charlene and be a granny-nanny. Before she reached the age of 70, she completed her Young Women’s Recognition with the culminating project of memorizing "The Living Christ" which she repeated almost every evening, helping her attain her Young Women’s medallion. Becky was blessed with a myriad of gifts and talents, especially her faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Like the widow from the New Testament, she gave all her mite- she consecrated all the living that she had- to God and everyone she came in contact with: including handing out pass-along cards and inviting her doctors, beauticians and any person she met to come to church and learn about the gospel. Becky loved music, especially the Music of Zion, and she used her love of music to learn to play the piano and sing in church choirs and with the Delano Diamonds sharing her testimony through the music that she cherished. She taught her love of music to her children and grandchildren helping them to grow closer to the Savior. Becky had to follow a very strict diet, yet she made the most delicious meals and desserts. She could take almost nothing and turn it into the most fantastic meal. Among her greatest treasures were her testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ, her Temple Recommend, and most of all, her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Becky never strayed from her beliefs through all of her trials and tribulations. She has always modeled that families are forever, "No empty chairs. " Becky is preceded in death by her parents: her mother Lois Caroline Westover Wegener & her father Wilfred Konig Wegener; her step-parents Geoffrey and Elaine Harris; her sisters Sylvia June Wegener, Linda Jill Bonella, Wendy Lou Casperson; her half-brother John Frederick Wegener; and a grandchild, Cassandra Judd. Becky is survived by her Children: Annette (Daniel) Judd, Bernard (Sarah) Walker, Charlene (Casey) Cosgriff, Suzanne (Richard) Ivie, Michael (Angela) Walker; her siblings Jeanette "Jeanie" (Keith) Brewer, William "Bill" (Lisa) Wegener; half-brothers Jim (Jenny) Wegener, David (Theresa) Harris; sister-in-law Lori Wegener; her grandchildren Annette’s: Chaylene, Kevin Jr (Sadie), Sylvia (Brian), Elizabeth (Will), Katelyn (Kevin); Bernard’s: Lillie, Cameron and Zachary; Charlene’s: Chiara, Benjamin, Jameson, Brigham and Michael; Suzanne’s: Zebulon, Catharina, Zoram and Zane; Michael’s: Malaina, Alia, and Alexeia; and 13 great-grandchildren with one on the way. Funeral services will be conducted 5:00 PM Sunday, November 26, 2023 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Owingsville with Bishop John Nelson officiating. Visitation at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints will be from 3:00-4:30 PM Sunday, November 26, 2023.
