Obituary of SHAUNA-LEE (SHAUNA) SHEPIT
Shauna-Lee (Shauna) Shepit
passed away with family by her side on November 26, 2023 at Grace Hospice at the age of 50.
She was predeceased by her father, Gilbert.
Shauna is survived by her partner, Mike, children, Chelsea (Cody), Randi, Jade, and Colby, and two grandchildren, Sophia and Jace.
Shauna also leaves her mother, Nancy, sister, Marnie-Lee, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as good friend, Jamie.
Shauna worked as a server for many years before becoming a Correctional Officer. She made lifelong friendships within both fields of work - drawing people in with her witty banter and infectious laugh.
Shauna worked to live and did not live to work. She loved summer days lounging in her backyard with her chocolate lab, Rufous. She liked sipping moscato and listening to country music. Despite being a homebody, Shauna was always the life of the party when she went out - so long as she had a couple drinks in her.
Shauna participated in gymnastics as a child and could still land a cartwheel round off later in life. She took up running in her adulthood and completed several half marathons and organized races. Other hobbies included collecting plants, fish, and gaudy home decor - uglier was always better and she had to have it.
Shauna had a quirky sense of humour, constantly finding amusement in the mundane. She didn’t take life too seriously and was always making fun of herself and the ones she loved the most.
Shauna loved being a mother above all else and felt that being a mom was her true calling. She adored her grandchildren and took pride in being their “Jamma."
Shauna is deeply missed and will be remembered, always.
The family would like to thank the Grace Hospital and especially, Grace Hospice for the care they provided Shauna during her last days of life.
A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday. December 13th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at Sturgeon Heights Community Centre located at 210 Rita Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Grace Hospice or Never Alone Cancer Foundation if friends so desire.
