MORGAN, Shana Rene (Wolf) 4/28/1961 ~ 8/11/2016 Shana grew up on her parents' dairy farm in Deer Park, WA. She attended EWU in Cheney to earn her teaching certificate and met the love of her life, David Morgan. After marry- ing on June 10, 1984, they lived in Cottonwood (Sedona), AZ, then moved to Washington state to live and dairy while Shana started teaching kindergarten in Valley. Finally settling in Deer Park on their own dairy, they raised three boys (Lee, Levi, Caleb). Shana adored her tight-knit family. She and Dave would take their boys camping, huckleberry picking, hunting, and fishing. They also enjoyed vacationing on the Oregon Coast. Throughout their childhood, the boys worked and played with their parents on the dairy. Later in life, Shana was fortunate to find joy in spending time with her granddaughters. Shana and Dave continued to go camping, as well as antiquing, visiting museums, and secondhand store shopping together. She also enjoyed antiquing trips and quilting weekends at Deep Lake with her sisters and mother. She had a special relationship with her mama, trading books to read and visiting her every day. Shana read everything. She inspired many people in her life to also become avid readers. This was part of her gift as a teacher! Her passion and enthusiasm for learning was contagious. She was well-loved as a kindergarten teacher in Valley for 29 years. Her talent and ability touched many students from generations of families, who went on to become teachers themselves. Shana saw beauty in everything around her and explored nature all her life. Sometimes she had a goal, like picking at least a gallon huckleberries or searching for the swans, but often she would just go walking in the wilderness. She knew everything about the flora and fauna of the woods, and if we ever had a question about birds, she was the one we would ask. Her family's house on Deep Lake was one of her favorite places. She would spend days watching the wildlife of the lake: otters, ospreys, eagles, and loons if she was lucky. Shana was one of those rare people you never forget, even if you only knew her for a day. She was outwardly beautiful with her infectious smile, green-brown eyes, and dimples, but it was her inward beauty that stayed with you. To put it simply, Shana stopped to smell the roses. She embodied compassion, empathy, and understanding. She engaged and listened to strangers and loved ones alike. She was goofy and wise, bubbly and philosophical, thought provoking and lighthearted. She had the guts and the ability to make you feel like the most important person in the world when you were with her. Shana was kind, caring, and tenderhearted, and was the most available, approachable, and intuitive friend we had. We love you and miss you Shana! Wish you were here. Shana was preceded in death by her father, Donald Dean Wolf, and her son, Levi Scott Morgan. She is survived by her husband David, sons Lee and Caleb and their families, mother, brother, and sisters and their families. Donations/contributions may be given to the Deer Park Library.
