Shaune enjoyed attending athletic events from Little League games to high school and college games. She was a loyal supporter of her nieces and nephews in all of their athletic endeavors. Shaune was an excellent softball player in her younger years and loved the game of racquetball as well. She was a loyal Hawkeye fan and even bigger Green Bay Packer fan.
Most recently, Shaune spent much of her free time visiting her mother, and bringing treats and smiles to the residents and staff at Plymouth Manor. Shaune was known to bring smiles and laughter whether in person or through a humorous text message.
