Shelly Marie Jones Siegfried
Shelly Marie Jones Siegfried, beloved daughter, mother, wife, sister, and friend, went to be with our Lord on Monday, Jan. 30, 2012. She was born to Nathan E. and Kay (Youngblood) Jones on Feb. 29, 1972, in El Paso, Texas.
Shelly was a certified family law mediator and certified general mediator. For eight years, she practiced law in Bexar, Karnes, Atascosa, DeWitt, Gonzales, Wilson, Comal, Guadalupe, and other surrounding counties. For the past six years, she had specialized in family law matters.
Shelly was involved in the community, speaking at seminars and panel events. She was a member of the San Antonio Bar Association Family Law Section, and a prior member of the Bexar County Court Resource Committee, the Bexar County Children’s Court, and the Safe Havens Advisory Board, and was a mentor for the Bexar County Community Justice Program.
She was the most beautiful, kind-hearted, loving soul who gave selflessly of herself to everyone who came into her life, her family said. Shelly never stopped advocating for the helpless and hopeless. She was truly a servant of God. Our “Borrowed Angel” touched so many lives and will never be forgotten.
Shelly is survived by her husband, Sean Eric Siegfried of Smiley; her son, Shane Eric Siegfried of Smiley; her parents, Nathan and Kay Jones of Smiley; her sisters, Jennifer Norris of Seguin and Catherine Mitchell and husband John of Smiley; her aunt, Vey Janosek; her uncles, Jay Youngblood, Charles Jones, and Roy Jones; her niece, Jessie Kay Norris Barillet and husband Matt; her nephews, Jacob Norris, Joshua Norris, Jonathan Mitchell (currently serving in Afghanistan) and wife Janet, and Brandon Mitchell; great-nephews and -nieces Coby Norris, Tyler Barillet, Coralie Barillet, and Madisyn Mitchell; and numerous family and friends.
A funeral service was held Saturday, Feb. 4, at 2 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in Nixon, with Brother Leon Davis officiating.
Interment followed in the Bundick Cemetery in Smiley.
Serving as pallbearers were Shane Siegfried, John Mitchell, Brandon Mitchell, Jacob Norris, Josh Norris, and Matt Barillet.
