Shelly Janae Stewart, 43, died Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017.
Shelly Janae Gunter-Stewart of Shawnee was born July 24, 1974, to Jay and Ruby Gunter. On Aug. 5, 2017, she attained heavenly rock star status after a valiant fight from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on July 26.
Shelly attended Shawnee schools all her life.
At a very young age, she was blessed with a little boy, Cameron, whom she loved and thought of every single day.
Upon the arrival of two of the lights of her life, her twin girls, Hope and Hannah, she was primarily a stay-at-home-mom.
On Oct. 16, 2012, she married her best friend, Clint Stewart. Together, they had blue-eyed little boys, Dax and Chad, who officially stole her heart.
Shelly absolutely adored ALL her babies, was enjoying being a new grandma to 10-month-old Hadlee, and was very much excited about the upcoming arrival of her second granddaughter, Haylon.
Shelly was very creative, having a gift and love for DIY projects, art, and painting. She loved good music, dancing to techno, having a good time, making others laugh, and was especially fond of inappropriate and immature humor.
She is preceded in death by grandparents: Roy and Irene Gunter, DL and Juanita Hodges; aunt: Nancy Dabbs; cousins: Karrianna Hanavan, Jeff Anderson, and Dee Hodges.
Survivors include parents: Ruby and Jay Gunter; best friend and soul mate: Clint Stewart; children: Cameron Wells, Hope and Hannah Farris, and Daxton and Chad Stewart; granddaughters: Haylon Racquel Howell and Hadlee Marie Morgan; brothers: Kelly and George Gunter; niece: Kylie Gunter; nephew: Preston Gunter; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and a plethora of dearly loved friends.
A celebration of Shelly's life will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 12, at Faith Christian Outreach off 177 in Shawnee with Haley Anderson and Jacklyn Cantrell speaking.
We intend to celebrate this rocker accordingly, so nothing fancy, but yes, please DO wear black.
Special thank you to OU Medical Center Trauma ICU Team, especially Shelly's nurse, Addie, for taking such amazing care of our girl. We would also like to thank Jennifer Mann for your incredible love and support to not only Shelly, but our entire family.
