Shelly Kay Baggett Hulse

June 30, 1967 — February 10, 2024

Kaysville, Utah

Shelly Kay Baggett Hulse, 56, returned to her Heavenly Family when her turn on earth ended Saturday Feb. 10, 2024 suddenly but peacefully at home due to complications from retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Shelly’s turn began June 30, 1967 - born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Richard (Dick) W Baggett Sr and Jeanette Kay Belka Baggett. She was the 3rd child and only girl putting up with 6 ‘obnoxious’ brothers.

She grew up in Bountiful, attending Bountiful Elementary, Millcreek Jr., and Bountiful High School graduating in 1985.

After High School she started her family and they moved around beginning in Bountiful, a stop in California, then back to Utah - Moab, Roy and finally ending up in Kaysville.

Shelly and Jay enjoyed taking adventures with their family in the great outdoors – camping, fishing, hiking with her favorite being the Mountain Man Rendezvous.

Later being a single mom, everybody’s little mini-Mom drove Big-Rigs over-the-road, sacrificing countless days and weeks to provide for her family, yet still managed to raise her 5 boys into fine young men.

“Mom was truly the sweetest woman. She was the definition of unconditional love. She was the best lover, fighter, and caregiver for all 5 of her boys.” - Kyle

“Mom was the best. I will always love her. I’m hanging in there. I can do that.” - Daniel

“Her presence offered genuine, unconditional love and nurture in its highest to everyone. While living in Moab she welcomed the boys and all their friends with open arms and took them in as her own. Years later when visiting, she would always make it a point to ask how each of them was doing. It was amazing how many people’s lives she had a positive impact on.” – Jake

“My mom taught me how to love in a world that can give you every reason not to. No matter how dark things got, something she said or did always brought me back. That’s the most rare thing in this life and I’ll never forget the example she set or the love I have to give, because she showed it to me.” – Tony

“My mom was the most selfless and big hearted woman with a funny sense of humor. Once I was dropping into a half pipe and biffed it, hard. She saw it and laughed hysterically as she ran to make sure I was okay. I remember the pain but couldn’t help but laugh at how hard she was laughing.” - Brady

“She was the best Grandma. The fun Grandma. You know, the one that got down on her hands and knees to play. She taught me to let the boys be boys and love them anyway….the best boy mom.” – McKel

As time was winding down, she often mentioned her most cherished experiences in life was time spent with her kids and grandkids.

Shelly is survived by her mother Jeanette Belka Baggett; sons Brady (McKel) Baggett, Jacob (Emily) Hulse, Tony Hulse, Daniel Hulse and Kyle (Allie) Hulse; grandsons Kash & Kingston; brothers Rick (Teresa) Baggett, Brett Baggett, Steve (Bethany) Baggett, sister-in-law Rebecca (Mike); 5 nieces, 9 nephews, great grandniece & nephew and most of her aging cousins.

Daddy’s little teeny-bop was preceded in death by her father, Richard W Baggett Sr; brothers Scott Perry, David Paul, and Mark William Baggett.

Shelly is not having a traditional funeral but the family will hold a celebration of life to honor Shelly Kay Baggett Hulse, in the Spring at a to be determined date.
