Shelly Ann Fryman (Heil)
June 4, 1982- October 11, 2023
Shelly was a lifelong resident of Darrington, WA. She was born to Rusty Heil and Sally Jelvik (Heil) on June 4, 1982. She graduated from Darrington High School in 2000. Shelly married the love of her life, Ken Fryman, on June 22, 2008.
In 2012, she completed an Associate's degree in Criminal Justice with the goal of becoming a law enforcement officer. However, in May of that year, she was involved in a life-altering automotive accident that left her wheelchair-bound. Despite her challenges, she persevered and made progress on several occasions towards walking again.
In 2019, Shelly was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She faced the disease head-on and overcame it twice, proving to be a true fighter. Even during her extended hospital stay, Shelly remained determined to earn her Real Estate License, which she achieved September 2020. She sold 23 homes in less than two years, demonstrating her hard work, dedication, and unbeatable spirit.
Shelly’s impact went beyond her professional achievements. She was an active member of the Darrington Community, working with the Darrington Community Center board on several projects as well as helping members of the community any way she could. Shelly loved the outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing. She looked forward to her yearly family vacation to Spectacle Lake and cherished every moment spent there.
