Shelly Heller

  • On November 7, 2020
Shelly Heller passed away peacefully Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020 with her family at her hospital bedside. She’s relieved of anxieties and freed of addiction. Shelly was born September 23, 1965, a daughter of Tisha and Jack Heller of West Newton. She graduated from Yough High School and Bradford Business School, and for years was employed as the accounting and finance manager of Security Systems of America in Pittsburgh.
With the most kindest and gentlest soul, Shelly was a friend to all and placed others’ needs before her own – especially those of her son, Christian Heller who she referred to as her greatest accomplishment. She is also survived by her sisters and their husbands, Lori and David Waryanka and Jackie and Mike Straub; nieces, Maragaret and Elizabeth Straub; and nephews, Mitchell Straub and Louis Waryanka.
Shelly’s love for family and friends will continue to shine through memories they hold so dearly. She was great at making people laugh and seeing the lighter side of a problem. She loved to drink sweet tea, give treats to family pets and care for strays, share her last dollar with a pal who had no money, and offer a ride to that person walking on the side of the road. Shelly always said, “I love you.”
At the family’s request, all services will be held privately. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pittsburgh Cremation and Funeral Care, 3287 Washington Road, McMurray, PA 15317, (724) 260-5546.
Please view and sign the family’s online guestbook at pittsburghcremation.com.

So sorry for your loss. Tammy Yelich And sons Christian and Samson

Dear Aunt Tisha and Uncle Jack, Lori, Jackie and family; My heart is so heavy with the news of Shelly’s passing. While I didn’t know her as an adult, I have such fond childhood memories of playing with the 3 Heller cousins at Grandma and Grandpap Yelich’s house. Shelly was beautiful and her obituary paints a lovely picture of her true character. It was very touching to read. Addiction is horrible and touches the lives of every family in so many different ways. We are so sorry for your own suffering with Shelly throughout her later years. Her heartache is gone, but your heartbreak continues. We can’t imagine losing one of our children and, with tear filled eyes, my husband and I truly extend our heartfelt sympathies to all of you. In Christian Love, Patty and Charlie Porter and family (Bill and Betty’s daughter and son-in-law )
