Shauna La'Nese Gentry
March 6, 1970 ~ June 10, 2015
A Blessed Life In the divine plan of God, Barney Douglas Gentry and Joyce Charlette Gentry were blessed with two new additions to their family. Shauna was the oldest of the twins by three minutes and their sister Sonya was thrilled to have two instead of one. Shauna La'Nese Gentry was born the sixth day of March, nineteen seventy, in Fort Worth, Texas. Shauna was the Frick in the Frack and loved her siblings. She was preceded in death by father, Barney Douglas; her grandparents, Lorraine; brother in law, Anthony Smith; nephew, Jordan Smith. At an early age, Shauna joined Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church and remained a member until the year of nineteen ninety-six. She was faithful in the children's choir and on the usher board until she moved her membership to Agape Christian Fellowship. Agape is where she spent the majority of her adult life as a devoted member and faithful Lead Usher. She attended the Potter's House of Dallas, where she was a member of the security team. To date, Shauna is a member of Word Of Truth and loved the Lord with all her heart. Shauna's years of school began with Morningside Elementary School and Harlean Beal Elementary School. She then attended Forest Oak Middle School where she played in the band for two years. Shauna's high school years were spent at Green B. Trimble Technical where for four years she was a part of the Science Club and on the Decoration Committee. She furthered her education at TCJC in Fort Worth and received an Associate Degree. Shauna worked for Wynn's Climate System for eight years until employed by Neiman Marcus where she was employed for eighteen years. Her position was Inventory Clerk until she moved in the cataloging department where she was a Catalog Coordinator. Shauna loved her job and the people she worked with were like family. There is so much to be admired, because of her loving spirit, kind heart, quiet demeanor, patient ways, strong will and her willingness to go on in spite of the obstacles before her. Because of her commitment and loyal devotion she never complained. Shauna loved traveling, professional sporting events, checking out new restaurants and being with family. Her nephews, nieces, were heart and she would give them the world, but when she was serious and spoke they listened to her words of wisdom. She was an awesome lady and it was a privilege to know her. On Wednesday, the tenth day of June, two-thousand fifteen, Shauna La'Nese Gentry heard the sweet whisper of Jesus, "Come to me and rest, your work is done." She had fought the good fight, submitted to His will and made her journey home to be with the Lord. Giving observance to her life in remembrance will be her mother Joyce Ford (Arther) of Fort Worth, Texas.

My prayers are with the family i really cant put into words what i really want to say but i will say God will see you all though in Jesus name and just know that shauna will still be with you in spirit it may be hard right now but just continue to lead on God in all understanding i am here for you if you need me im just a call away i love you all and will forever miss shauna
Donna and Family – just sending prayers your way. Shauna was a wonderful person and will be missed.
Donna and Family – May God who watches over us and hears us when we pray, be very near to give you strength and comfort now and in days to come. God bless you and keep you in his care.
I only met Shauna a few times but each time.. she was pleasant and nice to be around. The last time I was in her presence…I joked with her and her sisters to let them know I would be going home with them where I could be around their mom and eat all the sweets I could…well now I believe she is gone to her heavenly home. God bless the family.
I am saddened to hear of Shauna’s passing. Shauna and I worked together at Neiman Marcus for over 13 years. She was a wonderful person who always let her light for God and Jesus shine. I’m positive she is in His presence and enjoying the fruits of a life well lived. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
