* Anne-Marie Shiflet Memorial Fund
Anne-Marie Shiflet, a beloved administrative assistant for Shelton's Lower School and Upper School, died on March 11, 2023, after a courageous fight with cancer. She worked at Shelton for 21 years and seven months. She made the most of every day, loving and encouraging our students and supporting and befriending our teachers, staff and parents. In May 2022, Anne-Marie won Shelton's SPARK award, which stands for Shelton Parents' Association Recognition Kudos. At the time she was described as "incomparable, joyful, and packs a punch in a small package!" Head of Lower School Christine Davis told our staff at the awards ceremony, "She is the first to arrive and last to leave, and is dedicated to taking care of everyone in Lower School and Upper Elementary. She is an incredible supporter, encourager and friend, sharing with us her consummate smile, contagious laugh and servant's heart." Thanks to a gift from the Betty Glasheen Endowed Fund, Anne-Marie had the opportunity to travel to Montana to study the Lewis and Clark Expedition, including Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Recently, colleague Betsy Arciniega said in Staff Stuff, "Anne-Marie Shiflet is such a thoughtful and kind person. She is always willing to help in any way she can. She inspires me to be a better version of myself every day." And Shara Rogers told Anne-Marie on Caring Bridge, "I especially love your cheerful laugh. I can hear it when I think of you and it makes me smile." We cherish our memories of Anne-Marie, her loving ways and sweet smile and laugh. Her survivors include husband, Tim, son, Zero, and parents, Mary and Dan.
