LaShunda Jeanette Bowers

This online memorial was created in loving memory of LaShunda "Shawna" Jeanette Bowers, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. She will be forever 23, and in our hearts and memories always. Please sign LaShunda "Shawna"s guest book and let us know you came to visit.


This is my precious baby at 3 years old. She was so full of life and carried that with her into adulthood. LaShunda never met a stranger and was good to anyone that allowed her to be. She lite up a room just by walking in. My baby only lived 20 years after this picture was taken. She lost her life at the hands of an obsessive ex-fiance. Five days after she broke off their engagement, he took her life from her and from all of us that love her so. Our lives will never be the same without her. Her little brother was 19 at the time, he will now grow older without a sibling. Him and Shawna were so close. There will always be a void in our lives. I thank God that I raised my children in a Christain home. I do know that I will be with my daughter again one day. I know that she is safe with Jesus now, waiting on the rest of her family to join her one day. She is with my mom, her grand mother, that thought the sun rose in LaShunda. We love you more than words can express and miss you so much baby girl. Love, Mom and Michael.


Sept. 6, 2015 makes 10 years my precious daughter has been with Jesus. I miss her just as much today as I ever have. I remember her at 23 years old. I try to imagine what she would be like at 33....but I can't. I wonder if she would be married, have children. There will always be a void in each of the peoples lives that loves her. One thing I do know, I'm 10 years closer to being with her again. I look forward to the day that Jesus comes for his children and we are all joined again, never to be parted. God has brought me though this long hard road I have had to travel. Without Him, I wouldn't have made it. God never promised we wouldn't have troubles in the world. He did promise, He would be with us and bring us through it all if we trust Him. He has put joy back in my life, that only He could have done. It doesn't take away the void I feel, but it does make life worth living again. I love you honey and I will always miss you until I'm with you again. Mom

This is one of the picture's from the Independent Tribune, 2000. LaShunda and one of her high school teachers were chosen for makeovers. They had a ball doing this. The pictures and story covered an entire page and a half of the paper. Isn't she beautiful! I miss you my darling baby girl. Mom
