  1. Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family during this deeply troubling time. “And He said to Him: “Truly I tell you today, You will be with me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

  2. I’m so thankful to have had Shanwee as a part of my life for over the past 10 years. Not only was she my co-worker, more importantly, she was a dear friend of mine. We shared family stories together, laughed together, and cried together. She was the strongest Woman I’ve ever known, in heart and soul and has touched my heart in ways I never knew anyone could. She loved life and her family so much. She will forever be in my heart. Love you Shawnee Girl!

  3. Although I did not see Shawnee daily because I was out in the field, I spoke with her weekly. She touched my life with her kindness, always willing to help, the because we care attitude was contagious and made me want to be that way. She was one of a kind, a great mother, friend who knew how to live and love life. She will be missed and thought of everyday!

  4. I will always remember Shawnee’s bright smile and positive attitude on life. She LOVED her little boy so much, and fought so hard to stay strong and healthy for him. She will be missed greatly here on earth, but she will ‘live on’ in that sweet little boy. God has just got himself a wonderful angel, and Stevie and his family have an amazing guardian angel that will look over them and keep them safe. You will be missed Shawnee….and to her family/friends, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Stay strong and know you aren’t alone. God bless.

  5. We love you, Shawnee. We will always treasure the times we had at Disneyland and our trip to Walt Disney World together.

We will miss you, Uncle Jimmy, Aunt JoAnn, Alex (Pooh Bear), and Theresa (Tweety Pie)

  6. Forever will I remember the great Girl Scout moments Shawnee and I shared together as young ladies. Thank you Shawnee for making all our experiences even that much more memorable – you will never be forgotten.

  7. I will always remember the few times I got see Shawnee growing up. I remember what a special person she was; and she had a funny sense of humor. I remember how she like the movie Gone with the wind and would talk about certain lines from that movie. She loved Disneyland and the T.V. show Star Trek. Her whole family loved that show. I’m thankful to have had the chance to see Shawnee when we were kids. God Bless you Shawnee.You were a shining light in many peoples lives. Kelly McKenzie
