Jen Wilder :

I’m very sad that Shauna has passed. She was a great friend to me. I will miss her so dearly.
I will especially remember how strong she was and how she was positive throughout her fight with cancer. Cancer has a way of showing our true strength and spirit.
I will also remember her smile and the way she laughed!
Shauna was forever learning new things, growing and making connections with others.
It’s really sad that the ones we love the most seem to be the first to go.
Shauna was a true friend in a world of uncertainty.
My condolences to Ward and Family. She is truly missed!

Love and hugs to Ward and Shirley and all family and friends.

I met Shauna many years ago and she instantly won my heart. Her friend Shannon introduced us and both of those girls were adopted in my heart as daughters. I called her precious one and
Shauna called me her hippy mom. Her wisdom and grace were beyond her years.
Her eyes said it all. Beautiful, lively, spirited and so loving.

Missing you deeply...
Knowing you're home brings great comfort.

Shellie (cousin and sister in Christ):

Shauna you are so missed by us all but we take comfort knowing you are with Jesus . All of us left behind will cherish the memories and the bright light you were to this world. May we all find peace and solace knowing every tear has been wiped away the day you walked into paradise

Pamela Hurry:

I am so very saddened and sorry that Shauna has left this world. She was so strong fighting her cancer and was proud of her that she never gave up. I am relieved to know that she has God by her side and she isn’t suffering anymore, and I know she is smiling down on her family and friends! I will always remember her smile, the sparkle in her eyes and her strong will and determination to follow her dreams and inspirations. I will miss her greatly!
