Michelle “Shelly” Goldsboro, age 59, of Middletown, DE, and formerly of West Virginia, passed away on Monday, June 29, 2020.
Born and raised in Middletown on November 15, 1960, Shelly was the youngest daughter of Pauline (Miller) Goldsboro and the late James F. Goldsboro. Shelly worked as a church volunteer at the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew in Wilmington and at The People’s Settlement in Wilmington. A friend to the community, she loved to give back by donating clothing, coordinating toy and shoe drives and feeding the hungry. Shelly will always be remembered for her big heart, intelligence, free spirit, and her flair for fashion, many fondly called her “Hollywood”.

She is survived by her mother, Pauline (Miller) Goldsboro of Middletown; five siblings, Gregory E. Goldsboro of Wilmington, Thalia E. Goldsboro-Panton (Courtney) of Brooklyn, NY, Pandora M. Goldsboro-Caulk of Bear, Philamonia I. Goldsboro of Elkton, MD and James A. Goldsboro of Newark; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
