Shell was a flight nurse for Mercy Air Med. On January 2, 2013, she boarded a Mercy Air Med helicopter responding to a call: this was her final mission.
Mercy Air Med N445MT went down near Ventura, IA; there were no survivors in the crash.
Her passion was to help people. When she was not working, she was focused on her family – daughters Liberty and McKenna and husband Jay.
Thank you for your sacrifice Shelly Lair-Langenbau. God bless you and may you rest in peace.
