Shelby Josephine Peterson, 20, daughter to Ryan and Leanna Peterson, passed away September 3, 2021 at her home in Meridian Idaho. Shelby is now peacefully dwelling with her mother Leanna in heaven. A beloved daughter and sister; who loved her family very much. Shelby had a very kind and tender heart. Shelby was an amazing hugger! She loved playing soccer when she was young. She loved animals, horticulture, flowers, painting, pottery, dancing, listening to music, playing guitar, hanging with friends and had a real zest for life. Shelby was a great artist who loved to paint, she would often incorporate her love of plants and flowers into her artwork. She never liked to see anyone suffering: she would always relate with and seek out people who were hurting inside, befriend them, and make them feel comfortable; you could also find her rescuing some kind of animal who was hurt or in trouble; and of course she was always taking such good care of her plants, nursing them back to life when needed. Shelby was a fighter with tons of courage and determination. She always tried to never let her depression and anxiety get the best of her, always fighting off those demons which plague many of us today. Survived by her father Ryan, two brothers TJ & Trent, stepmother Courtney, stepbrother Jon, stepsister Brittany and her beloved family dog Dundee. She was preceded in death by her mother Leanna. Funeral services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint meeting house located at 15429 S. Iron Horse Blvd. Bluffdale, UT 84065 on Friday, September 17, 2021. Viewing: 9:30-10:30 am, Funeral: 11:00 am.
