Shawnee Larae Kimble came into this world on Sept. 7, 1995, in Grangeville, Idaho, to Jackie Oleson. She was welcomed by her brothers, KJ Shankweiler and Johnathon Kimble and sister, Kayla Kimble.
In 1999 Jackie married Brad Llewelyn and he welcomed Shawnee in as his own. Shawnee attended Washington, Syringa and Canyon Springs High School in Caldwell, Idaho. She studied hard for, and received, her GED on her own in 2016 with a little help from her brother, KJ. She loved music and learned to play the guitar, often entertaining friends far into the night. She embraced all kinds of music, and even liked a little country. She was a creative artist and photographer with talent in catching people’s inner beauty. Her passion for her friends, and her never-wavering support for the underdog made her a hero and anchor for many, especially her nieces and nephews.
Shawnee ﬁnally found her peace and went home to be with God on Feb. 11, 2018.
She was preceded in death by her grandma, Eloise Oleson and grandpa, Evan Llewelyn.
She is survived by: her parents, Brad and Jackie; her brother, KJ (Molly) Shankweiler; her brother, John Kimble (Jana); her sister, Kayla (Baldemar) Sustaita; her grandma, Shirley Llewelyn; six nieces and nephews; many aunts and uncles; eleven cousins and lots of friends.
