Michelle "Shelley" (Bybee) Carhill

December 18, 1953 ~ September 8, 2021 (age 67)


Michelle "Shelley" Bybee Carhill, 67, of Idaho Falls, passed away peacefully in her sleep on September 8, 2021, in the comfort of her own home. 

Shelley was born December 18, 1953, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Guy Lowell Bybee and Dona Abbott Bybee.  She grew up in and attended schools in Idaho Falls graduating from Bonneville High School. Shelley relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah to attend Saint Marks School of Radiologic Technology where she began growing her family, giving birth to Nick and Corey Larson.

On April 16, 1997, Shelley married Daniel Gary Carhill in Savannah, Georgia after reuniting at a high school reunion. They began their journey in Jacksonville FL, afterwards, spending time in Meridian ID, Damascus OR, and finally landing back at home in Idaho Falls.

Shelley enjoyed nature, wildlife, and crafting jewelry with gems. She adored her pets from horses, bunnies, cats, and especially her dogs. Her favorite childhood memories included competitive horse riding and campouts with her sisters and cousins in Island Park. Her children are grateful for the recent opportunity to visit West Yellowstone with their mother and Danny. Shelley was proud of her children, showing Nick's photographs to all and bragging about her daughter’s journey to the Nurse Practitioner role to any caretaker that would listen.

Shelley is survived by son, Nick Larson (Sascha); her daughter, Corey Larson (Jason); sisters, Fran Bybee and Tamara Harmon. Grandchildren include Jaxon, Burklee, and Diesel.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Daniel Carhill, father, Guy Lowell Bybee, mother, Donna Bybee, and sister, Lori Kay Bybee.

A celebration of life will be held in Spring of 2022, at a place to be determined due to current Covid restrictions.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to an account set up in her sister Fran’s name at Eagle Rock Nursery in Idaho Falls, to help grow her garden which can continually bloom out of consideration of honoring Shelley. Donations can be accepted by calling 208-529-3305 to place money on a gift card until Saturday, October 23, 2021.
