So sorry Terry to hear about Patti, and will miss seeing her and talking to her at our class reunion! Sending prayers and hugs to you and her family!

Audrey and Ray Schoen

We met Patti & Terry Lohman in 2012 when we moved to Amelia Island, through our good friends and neighbors, Shirley & Tom Lohman. We got to know Patti & Terry on a personal level had many good times over the years and certainly plenty of laughs. Patti was always such a loving and kind person. Her eyes and smile lit up everyone she encountered. Her hugs were the strongest and best hugs from anyone I know! We enjoyed celebrating birthday parties, watching football games together and our annual Shrimp & Grits breakfast at Miss Carolyn's in December. We had the amazing opportunity to meet her vibrant and loving sisters, Connie, Terri and Debbie, when they all came to visit Patti a couple of times, in the last few years. Her positive outlook on life and strong will kept her going. We miss and love her dearly and know that she is in a better place. Our deepest sympathy to Terry and the entire Shelly and Lohman families.

Jeff Goldhagen

I had the privilege and pleasure of knowing Patti through our work together at the Snyder Family Cleft and Craniofacial program. Patti was a kind and gentle person who embraced you with warmth and generosity. She was a committed professional who improved the lives of countless children over the years—a legacy that will live on. I will forever remember her smile and her laugh, and of course her critical role as Mrs. Santa in support of Terry as Mr. Santa Claus. Life isn’t fair sometimes, and losing Patti, who was with us every week in clinic—spiritually if not physically, is a sadness that will never be overcome. Patti, thank-you for your contributions to our children, for your steadfast leadership and guidance over the years, for your laugh and smile, for your support and for just being you. You will be missed, but never forgotten. And Terry, thank-you for sharing Patti over the decades. We will all share in the grief of the family, and celebrate a life of meaning and purpose. Jeff Goldhagen

Patti was a ray of sunshine to her patients & the members of the Cleft Palate Team. She always had a smile & welcomed you with open arms and her” bear hug”. She will be missed by so many who loved her.

Phillip Seager

I was her cousin and I first met her in Hermiston in 1967 when I was serving an LDS Mission when her parents were still alive. She was quite an active girl and enjoyed being around her

Mary Beth Burke

I met Patti through a referral from my doctor several years ago. I told her about the terrible 'ringing' in my ears. She put me through a series of tests, and then she played a sound that sounded exactly like what I hear in my ears every day of my life. I stood there in the sound proof room and cried (I was in my 60's!) - I finally felt validated - it was not 'all in my head!' She was kind, empathetic and had a fun sense of humor. Terry, I am so sorry for your loss. You and Patti were a great combination and I know you are missing her terribly. I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to know her and benefit from her knowledge, experience and compassion.


My condolences from Barcelona. I was allways waiting to see her lovely basket creations on Facebook. Sorry for your lost

Patrick Collins

I was truly blessed to be a professional colleague and friend of Patti’s the past 19 years. There was no one more committed to helping patients improve the quality of their lives than Patti. She was so friendly, warm, happy, kind and generous. When my travels took me to the north east portion of Florida, she would not allow me to stay at a hotel. I always treated as the guest of honor and was given a room at the Lohman household, provided I brought Blue Moon beer and a garnish of orange. Patti and Terry then supplied the best bbq on the planet and we drank, ate and laughed deep into those nights. She had the rare gift that made you feel comfortable to talk to her about any topic. Always an excellent listener, if you were struggling, she helped guide you to the right answer. As sad as I am knowing she is no longer with us, I prefer to think of the great times we had so I will leave this story; I initially served as one of Patti and Terry’s sales representatives, communicating primarily over the phone. Our calls were always enjoyable however we had never met in person or seen each other’s faces. This is well before Zoom and social media. We eventually agreed to email photos of ourselves, so we would know who to look for when meeting up at our industry’s upcoming big trade show. I promptly sent over a photo of myself and my family. Moments later, I received an email from Patti and Terry that was….SURPRISING. The photo featured a couple that were probably wonderful people, but let’s just say they were not going to win a beauty pageant anytime soon. In fact, it almost looked like the people in the photo were TRYING to look and dress as unattractive as possible. If you counted all the teeth in the photo, you needed only two hands. Regardless, as far as I was concerned, Patti and Terry were to great people and I didn’t care what they looked like. Eventually the big trade show arrived and a female approached me from behind and put her hands over my eyes. She began to whisper in my ear: “Do you know who this is???” Obviously, this was Patty’s voice. I turned around, expecting to see the toothless couple from the emailed photo. Clearly, Patti and Terry were NOT the same couple from the picture. After some laughter, they let me off the hook. Patti said “We took that picture from a website called We wanted to have some fun with you!” They certainly got me on that one but I think I was the one that had the fun time! Good bye Patti. I know you are in Heaven and no longer in pain. Thank you for everything and the next time I see you, the Blue Moon is on me. Love always, Pat

Terry, Dr Alex and family. I had the pleasure of having Patti as my Audiologist. She was a gem. I played Words with Friends online with her and she was tough to beat. She made me a basket I will treasure. Patti made a difference and will be remembered. I am wiping tears. RIP.

Janis Shelly Martin

Patti will be missed by a lot of people, she was an Amazing woman. As her cousin I wish I could have known her better but our parent's lived in different states. Our mom always talked so sweetly of Patti. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, especially with her husband and her sisters, they had such a special bond and a love beyond measure ❤️

Margaret M.Haight

Patti was one of those very special people who could light up the world. She was my idol and it it hard to think of the world without her. My love and prayers to all of her family.

Kimberly Shelly

I remember once when we were kids we went snowmobiling with Dad and Carolyn and Aunt Patty whole bunch of us up above Sandpoint and brother Jimmy and one of his friends took the bike pump and blew up the dogs with the bike pump the dogs farted all the way home Aunt Patty made Jimmy and his friend riding the back of the truck with the dogs farting all the way home she was mad but she was laughing so hard it was pretty funny that's just one little story she was such a beautiful heart on this Earth may she rest in peace and love always

Kay Guess

Patti was truly one of the sweetest, nicest people I’ve ever met. She would light up a room after entering. I will always remember her beautiful smile. My sincere condolences to Terry and the family.

Eric Haas

I only talked with Patti through Facebook but she was instrumental in helping me start my basket part business. I loved the way she was so proud of her husband's woodworking. He is skilled indeed. She will be missed by many for sure.

Lisa Fisher Owsley

My condolences to Terry and family after losing such a bright light in this world. I lived with Patti and Terry in Umatilla one summer while working for John’s Manville. I was genuinely blessed to meet and befriend these wonderful people. When I think of Patti, I remember: John Prine, Spam sandwiches, frog gigging and subsequent legs, laughter, smiles, and her complete adoration for Terry. She was one in a million and shocked to hear she is no longer with us. Heaven just added an incredibly bright STAR 🙏

Kathi Karnowski

Knowing Patti for years, losing touch with her and then seeing her years later, she was a jewel. She had a kind spirit and accepted people for who they were. I will miss you Patti and am sad you are gone so soon. Love you as a sister.

Mary Chambers

I’m devastated to hear this news. Patti was a childhood friend of mine, except for when we were playing junior high dodgeball. She was the undisputed dodgeball champ. I swam with her for many years on the swim team and always took the dreaded butterfly leg on the relay so I wouldn’t have to. I always looked up to her. Later, she made several baskets for me, which I will always treasure. Rest in peace, my friend. You were always a champion.

Jan Beyma

My condolences to the family. I met Patty through basket weaving classes. It was always a joy to have her in class. She loved Nantucket’s. I enjoyed seeing her creations. She will be missed in the basket world.

Connie Adam

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I never met her but knew her through her beautiful basket weaving. Whenever I had a question she answered and explained. I could could tell from her responses that she was a kind and inspiring person. May you find some piece in knowing how much she meant to strangers.🙏

Cathy Shelly Mullis

Praying for the family and her sisters. I know how close they are. Hugs and love

Nancy Bartlett

Sorry for your loss. Her posts to the basket page were an inspiration for many. I wish her family peace and comfort

Ruth Turner

I never even met Patti in person. We connected online when I bought one of her baskets. We were in touch several times, and her messages meant a great deal to me. I didn't have to meet or know her many years to realize what a special person she was. Her light shine through every word she wrote me; God bless her family as all of you grieve this difficult loss! 🙏🏻❤️

Liz Garza

My dear friend! Oh the joy we shared! Being your hairstylist and becoming your friend! I was so touching by your bravery and fortitude to embrace life in the midst of your trial! Thank you for wrapping my rocks! You are Forever in my heart! God bless Terry and your beautiful family!

Dr. Patricia Shelly-Lohman


Dr. Patricia Shelly Lohman age 69 of Fernandina Beach, Florida passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family on December 30, 2022. Patti was born on December 21, 1953 in Pendleton, Oregon to the late Dorothy Jean Haley and James Edward Shelly. She graduated high school in Hermiston, Oregon in 1972. In 1981, she married her beloved husband of 41 years, Terry Lohman and became a bonus mom to Tammy (Ross) Barnard of Yulee, Florida and Jason (Lisa) Lohman of Hermiston, Oregon. Patti received a Master of Science in Speech Pathology and Audiology in 1991, and followed up with her Doctorate of Audiology in 2002.

In June 2000, Patti started Amelia Audiology with her husband and was well-loved by all of her patients. She was assisted by her husband, Terry. Her love of her patients and dedication to helping others made her a well-loved member of the Fernandina Beach community. She also volunteered her time in Jacksonville at the Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic. She was proud that her grandson, Dr. Alex Barnard was able to continue her legacy at Amelia Audiology after she retired.

Patti shared a special bond with all of her siblings, Connie (Carl) Shelly, Debbie (Robin) Burrington, Terri (Dick) Shelly, and the late Carol Shelly. They all adored their beloved big brother, the late Jim (Carolyn) Shelly.

She also had the loving support of her in-laws, Floyd (Charlene) Lohman, Tom (Shirley) Lohman, and Lisa (Jeff) Spicola. She delighted in gathering with family and friends, and took pride in her three grandchildren, Alex Barnard, Allie Barnard, and Kaity Lohman.

And, she had a beautiful network of friends that she accumulated from near and far that were such a vital part of her life from Oregon, California, Texas, New Jersey and Florida.

Patti was an accomplished basket weaver. She was masterful caretaker of her plants and enjoyed the beauty of nature. Her laughter and bawdy sense of humor made her light up a room. If you knew her, you loved her, and she most definitely made you smile.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that you donate to Micah’s Place, Community Hospice and Palliative Care of Nassau County, or an organization of your choosing.
