Shauna poured her heart into the Delphos Area Art Guild as the director, which she brought back to life. She was a member of the United Brethren Church of Monticello, and was a graduate of The Ohio State University earning a degree in Architecture Design. She had previously taught Art at Van Wert Elementary.  She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend with a contagious smile, always eager to help whenever needed. She enjoyed volunteering and going to bible study. She was very artistic with a gentle soul and had a great love for God. Shauna was a bright shining light with a true Christian spirit who loved everyone. The world is a better place because of Shauna and her spirit will live on in so many ways. Delphos is truly a better community because of her and she will be missed by many.

A Remembrance Service of her life will be on Tuesday September 24, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at Harter and Schier Funeral Home. Pastor Andrew Askins will officiate.  Visitation will be at 2:00 p.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Buddy, Oliver, and Lilly.
