Over the years she also enjoyed dancing with Pete and later in life painting ceramics and taking bus trips, particularly enjoying the mystery trips. Shelvia was an animal lover, almost always having a pet dog around the house. She was a member of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in Short Gap, WV.
