Expressions of Sympathy
We are deeply sorry to hear of the death of Shellie T. Newell, president of the Aiken Gem, Mineral and Fossil Society.

Shellie died unexpectedly after an injury suffered from a fall at her home. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Aiken Club members for their loss. Shellie passed away on January 9 of this year. Shellie Newell was a journalist, editor and publisher with a lifelong passion for nature and science. Shellie served numerous terms as Aiken Club president and many years as its newsletter editor. Her articles and newsletters won many regional and national awards. A friend to rockhounds everywhere, talented, bubbly, warm and fun-loving Shellie will be greatly missed by many.
