On Tuesday July 28, 2020 in the early morning hours Shelby lost her battle with addiction, she was 22 years old.
Shelby was born January 16, 1998 in Kingston, NY. She attended Rondout Valley High School and graduated in 2016. She loved spending time with her family and friends. For those who truly knew Shelby they saw her beauty inside and out, her smile could light up a room. She loved wholeheartedly. Though our hearts are broken, we are blessed for we had the privilege of knowing her in this life.
She is survived by her father Phillip Harris and her stepmother Jennifer; her mother Lisa Rider and her stepfather Donald; her sister Sydnee Rider; her paternal grandparents William and Nereida Harris (Nanny and Poppy); as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Services will be private, and a memorial is to be announced at a later date.
So sorry for your loss. Our sincere sympathy to you and your family.
May the Lord wrap you all in his arms of peace and comfort, as he has Shelby safely with him.
Our condolences to Shelby's family so sorry for your loss

Rest In Peace Shelby. Love and strength to your family to help you through.
Sweet Shelby, we’ve been best friend since 5th grade! We did so much together, skate time, campfires, swimming, school events, sat together everyday at lunch. You were such a great person & friend. I’m so proud of you for trying to get help, you are at peace now, and not fighting you demons, and the eases my heart a bit. I wish you were still here to celebrate sobriety one day, make more memories together, and spend time with family. You will be missed babygirl. Your family & real friends love & miss you so much. Watch over us, I’ll see you soon beautiful, I love you❤️
We love you Shel
So many memories to cherish ❤️
Shelby and I recently became close friends this summer, but we were in the same grade and I knew her for years. We actually spoke the night she passed.. it pained me to wake up and hear that news, I couldn’t believe it.. like I was just talking to her.. addiction is a real disease and we need to be there for our friends and loved ones when they are going through it.. not punish them. I love you Shelby and I hope you are resting sweet girl.
So sorry Lisa and family...I spoke to Shelby sporadically through the years, which I loved..she was always so upbeat and excited for the next chapter...my thoughts are with you all
My heart goes out to Shelby family and close friends. I knew her since she was 14 when my son dated her. Another amazing person taken by the demon called addiction. RIP Shelby. You were such an amazing person with such a big heart ❤. You will forever be lived and missed. Fly high beautiful angel xoxo
