Shonee Metcalf passed from this life on November 20th, 2016 at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
An eternal mindover matter optimist. She loved her husband Ken unreservedly for 56 years and found great joy and pride in her children Kim and Shonee, grandchildren Graham and Grace and son in laws Leif and Greg.
A city girl, she embraced the dream of farm life and learned to drive big tractors, chase wayward cattle and taught her daughters they could do anything they set their minds to. She powered through several medical conditions to live a life filled with gentility, positivity and an indomitable spirit. It's hard to let you go Mom. But we know that your work here is done and you are ready for your next assignment in a place where there are no more tears and no more pain.
Friends and Family please join us December 3rd between 1:00 and 4:00 to an Open House celebrating her life at the family home 1799 E 1675 Road, Lawrence KS.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center.
