In memory of
Shana Marie Wilkinson Dec 1, 1980 - Dec 31, 2016 In answer to prayer, Shana Marie Wilkinson was born on December 1, 1980 to Stephen and Mary Wilkinson. True to this origin, Shana lived her life expressing a contagious sense of inner joy and sweetness that was evident to all who encountered her. By the age of 6, Shana was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, a neurological condition affecting her ability to communicate verbally among other limitations. In spite of these constraints, Shana lived her life to her fullest under the constant loving care of her parents, siblings, and nephew. She enjoyed music, food, visits to the mountains, and especially her family. After a brief struggle with respiratory complications, our angel Shana truly earned her wings on December 31, 2016, surrounded by her loved ones. She is survived by her parents, siblings Lisa Brush (Steve Brush), Matthew Wilkinson (Jessica Bruha), Kevin Wilkinson, and nephew Weston Brush. She will be fondly remembered but greatly missed. A celebration of life service will be held at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church on Maze Blvd on Friday, January 20th at 3pm, with a memorial reception to follow at Westport Fire Department on Carpenter Rd in Modesto, CA. The family requests that those in attendance wear bright, happy colors in honor of her joyful nature and love of color. Donations may be made to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust ( rsrt.org ) and Shriners Children's Hospital of Sacramento. www.cvobituaries.com
