Shanna Rhae Janeaux (June 7, 1986 – April 22, 2022) lived a beautiful fun-loving life.
Shanna adored her two boys, Keagan and Kamdyn more than life itself. Her world revolved around her two boys. She was a classic boy mom. She instilled upon them integrity, loyalty, and compassion for others.

Shanna was awarded the Remax Quantum Leap Award for 2021 recognizing the agent with the biggest growth in their business year over year.
Sports played a big role in Shanna’s boy’s lives. She was always determined to provide them with the best tools for success such as special instruction and training.
Assisting with coaching and being a supportive team mom was an essential role for her. She was their biggest fan and cheerleader.
Although sports played a big active role in her and the boys lives education came first. She spent countless hours at the kitchen table with homework, tutoring, and assuring that the boys had the necessary skills to excel academically.

Shanna loved supporting Christian charities, helping anyone that came in her path, Donald Trump and politics, Grays Anatomy, Max and Val, Aunt Peggy’s Dressing, Alex Bregman, recycling,thrift shops, Aunt Jamie’s cake, Red-Hot Chili Peppers, volunteering at the SETX Food Bank, and especially Birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. She was also a Pro-Life and Breast-Feeding Advocate.
Some of us were so fortunate to know some of Shanna’s idiosyncrasies. imperfections? No, this was the good stuff. Rubbing her feet together like her dad Paw Paw Paul, 8 cream 2 Splendas, drive 10 miles across town to save two cents on gas, Managers Special, doodling her signature heart.
We will all remember that infectious smile and joyous laughter that lit up the room in her presence. Everyone was drawn to her inner light. Her spirit was one of one.
She leaves behind Keagan’s soft heart, Kamdyn’s toothless smile, and her generosity of spirit. But most importantly a mother’s unconditional love and GODS promise of no more tears.
A celebration of Shanna’s life will be held at a later date.
