Shauna Mulligan

April 29, 1959 – November 8, 2020

Praise God: Jesus called on Shauna Colleen Mulligan on November 8, 2020, to leave her imprisoned body and ascend to heaven. Shauna had CP and fought her whole life to maintain some quality of life. She never complained. She loved life and lived it to the fullest.

She enjoyed hanging with the family at small and large gatherings where she was quick with a smile and a hug. Shauna was a devoted Christian, loved going to church to worship and visit with her friends. She was a member of the Evangelical Free Church in Canton, IL. Shauna also enjoyed country music, especially Johnny Cash and the Oakridge Boys and was an avid Denver Broncos fan.

The incredible thing about Shauna was her love of people. She was without hate, bias, or prejudice. The world would be a much better place if everyone were a bit more like Shauna.

Shauna is survived by her father, George F. Mulligan, 93; three brothers, Stephen Mulligan, Patrick (Margaret) Mulligan, and Sean Mulligan; and two sisters, Kathy (Douglas) Nafziger and Erin (Ed) Welcome.

Shauna was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley (Haughawout) Mulligan.

A Visitation will be held from 4-6 PM on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at Sedgwick Funeral Homes & Crematory in Canton, IL. A family gathering will be held at 10 AM on Monday, November 16, 2020 at Evangelical Free Church in Canton, IL.

Burial will follow at Orendorff-Breeds Cemetery in rural Canton, IL.
