Shanda always brought joy and laughter to those who knew her best. She touched the lives of everyone she met. Shanda was known for giving special gifts to her family members. She loved her family, stuffed animals, playing with the dogs and cats, and had a special love for playing bingo. Along with her love for bingo, Shanda had a love for kids.
