Shelby Danielle Slagle (maiden name Amick), age 27, departed this earth on Friday, June 26, 2015 to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Shelby was cherished by many people and will leave a legacy of love but emptiness in our hearts forever. Shelby was preceded in death by her grandmother, Barbara Ann Amick, and grandfather, Gale Alan White, whose hand she will be holding forever. She was also preceded in death by her great-grandparents, William and Marjorie Bechtold and Thomas and Zuella White. Shelby is survived by her husband, Ryan William Slagle, her parents Dennis Craig Amick and Laurie Jo Amick of Canal Winchester, a sister who worshiped her, Haylee Christine Amick, her grandmother Shirley "G-Ma" Jean White, her grandfather, Charles Edward Amick, aunts and uncles who adored her, Kimberly Lynn (Eric) Koenig, Jeffrey William White, Debbie Ann Thomas, Charles Edward (Melissa) Amick, and Lisa Lynn Amick; father-in-law and mother in-law, John and Jean-Ann Weis, and Craig Slagle, many brothers-in-law and sister-in law, Stephen Slagle, Adam Slagle, David Weis, Dan (Kelley) Weis, Mario Slagle, Alison and Kaley Slagle, and a host of cousins who have carried her throughout her life. Her best friends were there for her all along her journey; Megan Ruetsch, Cara Harmon, Sammi Kyker and Jordan Slagle. Shelby carried with her a contagious smile, even on days when she was not feeling her best. She would always encourage everyone that she knew and came in contact with to live their "best" no matter the circumstance. She was passionately involved in leading others to Christ and did this through ministry and volunteer work at The Hub at Crossroads Church. Shelby taught at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Daycare Center as an Early Childhood Teacher; a pint-size power house to many children who she loved and cared for as her own. She belonged to The Zipper Sisters guiding young women through the journey of congenital heart defects. Over time she became passionate about organ donation and became a speaker for Lifeline of Ohio. Shelby enjoyed cooking, baking, making homemade gifts from the heart, music, concerts, watching thunderstorms, and spending time with Ryan, family and friends. She never missed an opportunity to be a part of a gathering.
