She was born on April 20, 1940, in Carlisle, a daughter of the late Raymond L. and Dorcas A. Unger Cummings, Sr., and married Ned E. Nenninger on October 19, 1957 in Leesburg.

Shelby was an excellent cook, enjoyed canning, and liked to shop. At home she spent time birdwatching, especially the goldfinches and cardinals, and enjoyed watching soap operas on television. Shelby was always known to have a love of the big bodied, long style of cars, mainly Buick and Cadillac, and owned quite a few throughout her life.
