Michelle “Shelly” Mary Coborn was born in the St. Cloud Hospital to Dan and Mabel Coborn October 21, 1954. Shelly attended Sacred Heart grade school and graduated from Sauk Rapids High School in Sauk Rapids. She studied Field Biology at St. Could State University. Shelly is known as a person with a generous heart and loving spirit by everyone who knew her. She inspired those around her with her wisdom and her strength. She was always happy to help those around her be their best with encouragement and any aid she could provide. Being out in nature or in the kitchen with friends made her happiest. She felt blessed to be able to pursue her passions of philanthropy, gardening, and cooking more so in recent years.

Survivors include her children, Danny (Tina) Coborn and Maria Coborn; grandchild, Dahlia Coborn; mother, Mabel Coborn; brothers and sister, Chris (Becky Borgner), Suzy (Marty) Ellis, Duke (Amy Armstrong), and Tom. She was preceded in death by her father, Daniel.
