Shelby A. Murch, 34

Shelby A. Murch

Our community sadly lost a beautiful soul Sunday, Oct. 28th, 2018, when Shelby Anne Murch, of Bridgton, passed away in her family’s arms at Central Maine Medical Center.

In her 34 years of life, her loving nature was apparent to everyone she was around. She had a vibrant, fun-loving spirit with a bit of feistiness, and our Shelby didn’t know a stranger. She loved so hard and selflessly, and had a passion for taking care of people.

Shelby was preceded in death by her father, Frederick Charles Murch; grandparents. Francis and Jeanne Mercier, and Charles and Sandra Murch.

Shelby will be missed beyond words by her surviving family members: mother, Kim Murch; and two sisters, Taylor and Lindsay Murch; her fiancé, Frank Patriotti; brother-in-law, Kit Doty and sister-in-law, Bobbiesue Knipp; her aunt and uncles, Michael Mercier, and Mary and Chris Whitaker; her cousins, Jared and Zachary Mercier, Mason Whitaker and Parker Cook; her beloved niece, Addelyn Faith Doty; and many other cousins and family members.

Family and friends are invited to a time of visitation from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2, at the Chandler Funeral Home, 8 Elm St., Bridgton. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the North Fryeburg Community Chapel, 1225 North Fryeburg Rd., Fryeburg. Donations may be made through a GoFundMe page titled: A Final Gift for Shelby. Condolences and tributes may be shared at
