A benefit was held for the family of a Marion woman who was found murdered in March.

Police received a call that Shelley Shockey, 41, was missing from her Marion home on March 10, 2014. When police investigated her husband's suspicious behavior that night, Shelley's body was discovered in the basement of their home. Husband Dave Shockey, 37, was charged with aggravated murder, and his girlfriend, Danielle Crokie, 19, was charged with tampering with evidence.

Shelley's family members held a fundraiser at West Fourth Street's Planet Rock not only to raise money to help her five-year-old son, Dalton, but to pay tribute to her memory as well. One of several event organizers (and a friend of Shelley's), Wanda Frazier, explained the purpose of the benefit.

"It came together as kind of a get-together in remembrance of (Shelley), and it was organized to try and get as many donations as possible so that her son can have some stabilization throughout all this," Frazier said.

Some of Shelley's family members who spoke to us described her personality, their favorite memories of her, and what they'd miss the most about her.

"She was one of the nicest people that you could ever meet," said Amber Diersing, Shelley's daughter. "She'd never forget anybody's birthday, she would always send cards. She was just really, really sweet and a good person."

"I've got a lot of good memories growing up, and there was a lot of traveling we would do together," said Troy, Shelley's brother. "She was a great sister, and we miss and love her. When we would come home for Christmas and the holidays, she would always make it really special," he added. "Just the kindness of who she is, that's the part we'll really miss."

Shelley's mother, Sue, also spoke. "I'm really gonna miss her a lot," Sue said. "She was always so much fun to be with, and that's what I'm really gonna miss about her. I love you, Shelley."

The fundraiser's donation goal is aiming for $6,000 total, which will help young Dalton's family take care of him. The family wishes to thank everyone who attended the fundraiser and everyone who helped with the preparations.
