Shannon R. Sanford
Shannon R. Sanford, 37, of Rainelle, went home to be with the Lord Friday, August 9, 2019, following a lifelong battle with diabetes.
Born in Ronceverte, she was the daughter of the late Thomas "Buck" Sanford and Rhonda Kanode Childers (Danny) of Ronceverte.
Shannon lived life with the most infectious of smiles always planted on her beautiful face. In the midst of all of the physical struggles she had to endure, she could always find a laugh and a smile if you needed one.
In addition to her dad, she was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Lloyd and Macie Sanford; her maternal grandfather, Donald Kanode; and her brother Tommy Sanford.
Those left to cherish her memory along with her mother are the light of her life, her daughter Jaspine Brown of Russellvile; her sister Amber Sanford of Ronceverte; 2 nephews Chase Walker and Jameson Hunter, both of Ronceverte; her companion Gene Bumgarner; and a host of extended family and friends.
Services will be 2:00 p.m. Thursday, August 15, at Smathers Funeral Chapel with Pastor Benny Kenney officiating.
