Shelley Grant, age 85, passed away on July 27th, 2022. She was surrounded by family and caregivers at Quiet Oaks Hospice House in St. Cloud, MN. Shelley was preceded in death by her husband Gary Grant; her son Matthew Finn Andersen; parents Finn and Alice Heimdahl; first husband David Andersen; sisters Lori Gibson and Annie Heimdahl; and brother David Heimdahl.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children: Joel (Dani) Andersen, Jon (Beth) Andersen, Mike Andersen; grandchildren Tadashi (Karisa) Andersen, Jen (Adam) Regier, Taylor (Chad) Anderson, Jared Andersen and Logan Andersen; great- grandchildren Ella, Finn and Margot Regier; sister Merry McIntyre; brother, Peter (Carrie) Heimdahl; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives & friends. 
Shelley was born on April 15, 1937 to Finn and Alice Heimdahl in Sioux Falls, SD. She attended school in Havre, MT up through 9th grade, and graduated from St. Louis Park, MN. She met David Andersen in high school, fell in love, married, and they raised four sons, Joel, Jon, Mike and Matt.
Living with a houseful of men, Shelley learned the game of football so she could spend time with them, and she ended up being the loudest of the bunch! Despite her being a Brett Favre super fan, we all tolerated her "Packer" years. Once he joined the Vikings, we all could finally agree to be mad at BOTH the Packers and the refs.
Shelley was a special person who was beautiful inside and out. She loved and cherished all her family and friends and spending time with them. Her siblings held a special place in her heart and their loved ones. She took great joy meeting new people and creating lasting friendships. She stayed in touch with everyone through phone calls, letters, and even Facebook!
Throughout our shared lives with Shelley, she brought beauty and laughter into our world through her beautiful smile, quick wit, and quirky sayings and songs. Shelley will be remembered as the "Hat Lady" and her spectacular fashion sense with the ability to accessorize any outfit for any occasion. She loved make up and jewelry and spent many years selling Avon. She took delight delivering customers their packages on her bright yellow bike across the town of Havre. She loved walking, reading a good book, music, movies, politics, chocolate, coffee dates with friends, and enjoyed making oatmeal date cookies and cheese straws for family every Christmas. She spent time with God reading her daily devotions and inspirational readings.
Shelley was lucky to find love twice. In 1993 she moved back to Havre, MT and married Gary Grant. Her parents followed Shelley to Havre and lived next door. Shelley spent many years caring for them up until they passed. Shelley and Gary shared a similar sense of humor. They loved dressing up for Halloween, styling with hats, sunglasses and crazy get ups. She moved to back to MN after Gary passed away after the many years he battled Alzheimer's.
Shelley will be deeply missed by her family and her many lifelong friends. A Celebration of life will be held on September 24th at the Peterson Grimsmo Funeral Chapel in 250 E. Broadway, Monticello, MN. Visitation will take place from 10 - 11 am, with service at 11 am. Lunch to follow at Chatters restaurant in Monticello, with private burial in Wilmar, MN and Havre, MT.
In Lieu of flowers, donations to the Quiet Oaks Hospice Home or the Alzheimer's Association can be made in her name. Arr. Peterson-Grimsmo Chapel 763-295-2918 www.peterson-grimsmochapel .com
