Shawnta received her formal education in the Harrisburg Public School System and went on to study music at (HACC) Harrisburg Area Community College. Shawnta was an outgoing person. She loved cooking, spending time with family and friends, and singing. To know her was to love her. Shawnta had spunk! Shawnta was very loving and cared deeply for her family and friends. She was a hospitable person and worked in the hospitality field for 20 years.

Her journey with Christ began at an early age and she joined the church choir. Of course, she always had the leading roles. Although Shonny joined several churches throughout her life, her assignment was always in the choir. Shawnta always sought the Lord throughout her life. Most recently Shawnta was a member of United Baptist Church.
