Shelley was born September 23, 1955 to Beth and Don Lockman in Yankton South Dakota.  She graduated from Yankton High School and the University of South Dakota as a Registered Nurse.  She and Lisa moved to Abilene Texas in 1984.  Shelley had taken a job as a RN at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene.  She loved being a nurse and felt strongly that nurses were advocates for those they cared for.  She had a passion for her work which included medical surgical, telemetry and eventually nursing informatics.  She was at Hendrick for over 30 years wearing many hats during her tenure and felt each position was a way to help better healthcare for the patient.

Shelley is survived by her daughter Lisa and her husband Aaron; brothers Terry Lockman, Gary Lockman and his significant other, JoAnn Minnette; nieces Lori Lockman and Sara Lockman, and a nephew Ryan Lockman.

Lisa and Aaron would like to thank Dr. Keerthana Karumbaiah Dr Raj Cheruku and Dr. Rudy Haddad with Shannon Medical Center as well as the staff of the Shannon Heart Center and Shannon Hospital.  They would also like to thank Dr Jerome Thomas and all of the other Heart Hospital of Austin Providers and Staff that participated in Shelley’s care.  All of her medical team worked tirelessly to provide her with the best care possible and we are eternally grateful for each and every one of you.

    I have fond memories of Shelley. When she first came to Texas to be a staff nurse at Hendrick we worked on the same unit. We spent many days working side by side.
    Shelley always loved telling a story on me of when a tube full of water went awry and she ended up having to go home and change her uniform! We had lots of laughs and some stressful times as well; but I always knew she loved the career she had chosen. She was instrumental in setting up the clinical computer system we still use today!!
    Rest in piece dear friend! You will be missed.
