The heavenly gates opened on July 16 to welcome home a beloved mother, daughter, sister, auntie and friend.
Shawna dedicated her life to being an incredible mother to her one and only son Martell. Shawna understood what life was really about. She was very free spirited, outgoing, adventurous and full of spunk. She had such a unique and contagious laugh. When she laughed, we all laughed. She always made her presence known. Some of her adventures she loved were riding her razor, motorcycle riding, hunting, shooting, camping and traveling. She was vivacious and not afraid to explore and try out new things.
Shawna is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Allen and Bernita "Bert" Lingenfelter and paternal grandparents, Eugene "Gene" and Lucilla "Lu" Milton.
Shawna is survived by her son Martell, (Teesha) Graham, parents Lynn and Jeanie Milton, siblings, Tim, (Kayla) Milton, Jodi, (Shawn) Bohannon and Brandon, (Brittany) Milton. Her nephews, Isaac, Preston, Gabe, Bryan and Tyler. Her nieces Bella, Makayla, Gena, Aurelia and Chloe. Also by many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends. She was a special GiGi to Faith, Jacob, Darius and Zoe.
The family appreciates all of the prayers and love extended to us during this time.
A Celebration of Life and a reception will be announced and held at a later time.
Though we will not say goodbye, for now, we say "Good night, dear heart. Good night, good night.
