Shelly Ann Teubert was born on April 11, 1973, at Hutchinson Community Hospital in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She was the daughter of John and Mary Ann (Zuehl) Teubert. Shelly was baptized into the Christian faith on April 29, 1973, by Pastor Arthur Rasch at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lester Prairie, Minnesota. Her baptismal sponsors were LaJean Hoof, Margie Herrmann and Albert “Sonny” Teubert. She was confirmed in her faith on April 12, 1987, by Pastor William Metzger also at St. Paul’s. Her confirmation verse was Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Shelly attended K-12th grade at Lester Prairie Public School where she participated in volleyball, basketball and softball. She graduated with the Lester Prairie High School Class of 1991. She furthered her education by attending Southwest State University in Marshall, Minnesota for two years and then transferred to Ridgewater College in Hutchinson where she earned a practical nursing degree in 1998 and registered nursing degree in 2002.
On September 25, 1995, Shelly gave birth to her daughter, Desiree. She was Shelly’s pride and joy. Shelly loved to snuggle with Desiree and would often sing to her “You are my Sunshine.” On May 8, 2004, Shelly was united in marriage to Jeff Liestman at Peace Lutheran Church in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She was a current member of Peace Lutheran Church. Shelly knew her Lord and Savior.
Shelly cherished the time spent with her friends and family, especially her daughter, Desiree. She was Desiree’s best friend and biggest cheerleader. Shelly’s day always started with a good cup of coffee, in fact the coffee shop always knew just what she wanted. Shelly would often tell Desiree “I love you more than coffee” to emphasize just how much she loved her. Shelly enjoyed family traditions including impromptu birthday parties at Unhinged Pizza and fish fry’s at the family cabin. She had a very close relationship with her parents, sisters and especially liked to show her nieces and nephew a good time.
Shelly worked most of her nursing career as a nurse manager at the Hutchinson Health Inpatient Mental Health Unit in Hutchinson. She was very passionate about her career. Her work family was a very important part of her life. She also worked at area hospice & home health care agencies and was honored to care for others.
Shelly had an outgoing bubbly personality with a contagious smile that could light up a room. She had a zest for life. Shelly loved to have fun. Music and dancing brought her great pleasure. The lake was her happy place where she would often spend time with her family and friends. She loved to fish and soak up warm sunshine. She also enjoyed going to garage sales and playing bingo. Her and Desiree loved making tied blankets together. Shelly was always up for a refreshing bloody mary and patio music at Floyd’s. She previously rode a Harley and had hopes to someday own a purple Harley with ape handlebars. For her “the journey was everything.”
Sadly, Shelly passed away on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at her home in Silver Lake, Minnesota, at the age of 43 years, 9 months and 10 days.
Blessed be her memory.
