Shelley van Lowe is the former owner of Van Lowe Taxidermy in Lewisburg.


Shelly inherited the taxidermy company from her parents, working with her brother Calvin.[1] When Calvin went missing, she attempted to locate him, utilizing posters to do so.[2] She believed that his obsession with cryptids had contributed to his disappearance.[2] Despite wanting to stay in Lewisburg until she had closure regarding his fate, Shelley eventually left, leaving a note for Calvin on his terminal.[3]

In the note, she indicated that she planned to move to "where Mom and Dad said we'd always live some day," hoping that he would return and read the message.[3] She was unaware of the full nature of Calvin's employment by the Bysshe Company or of the existence of his secret lab in the basement of the store.[3]

She was close with Deborah Timmerman before the bombs dropped, eventually becoming her significant other.[4] Carver Timmerman references Shelley, indicating that she works as a trapper for his family's hunting business in Kentucky.[5][6] A letter suggests Shelley and Deborah are still alive and together in recent times.[7]


The spelling of her first name is spelled both "Shelley" and "Shelly."


Shelley van Lowe is mentioned only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wild Appalachia update.

  5. Carver Timmerman: "Well I was born around here actually, but my mom moved us sometime after the war. Now we've live in a settlement out in what used to be Kentucky, I guess. Maybe it still is Kentucky? I don't know, I tried reading some old geography text books as a kid, seemed like a waste of time now, though."

  6. Libby Wen: "Is there no one else from your family that can run shipments for you, Carver?"
    Carver Timmerman: "Well my mom used to do this before she got sick. And I guess Shelley could, but then we'd be down a trapper. Why do you ask? I'm not very good at this, am I?"
