Shanna Rose Pulley, age 36, of Sheridan, Indiana passed away February 11, 2019 at St. Vincent Hospice at Indianapolis, IN after a courageous battle with lymphoma.
She was born December 7, 1982 at Marion, IN to Richard Chester and Julie Ann (Cramer) Pulley. Her parents survive her along with a grandmother, Marilyn Mae Joy of Marion, IN.
Shanna was a graduate of Mount Vernon High School with the Class of 2001. She then furthered her education at Professional Careers Institute. Until illness forced her to retire, she was working at Indiana Spine Group.
Shanna excelled in music, having sung in the choir at school and at her church. She also played the piano and guitar. At times she would write and record her own songs. While attending East 91st Street Christian Church, she mentored a high school girls class, following them from their freshman year to their graduation. She went on various mission trips that included Tennessee and Jamaica. She was a current member of iTown Church.
She had worked as a medical assistant for 13 years and always hoped she was making a positive difference in the life of others. When her illness took hold in 2017, Shanna told her parents that if her cancer journey could help even one person, it would be well worth it. Her life, while short, was well lived.
